Ideal for a roadside repair or at a customer’s premises where regular power supplies are not available, the new Mini-Ductor® 12V (MD-500) is completely portable.
Working off a 12-volt battery pack, off a car, van or truck battery or indeed any piece of kit with a 12-volt battery, the Mini-Ductor® 12V can be used for a number of remote applications where rusted, corroded or thread locked parts need to be removed quickly and safely.
How it works
The tool uses Invisible Heat® to quickly heat ferrous and some non-ferrous metal and provides a viable, safe alternative to using a naked flame. Some parts can be also be reused as the flameless heat is localized on the part and not the surrounding area, with less collateral damage.
The Mini-Ductor 12V is supplied with 3 bendable coils, ideal for hard-to-reach areas and thin enough to wrap round the nut and heat it in seconds for easy removal. For example, a 19mm nut is heated red hot in 15 seconds. The heat expands the nut and breaks down any corrosion bonds.
The tool comes with crocodile clips, this allows it to easily take power from far more sources, rather than using an Anderson connector plug which would limit its use.
Key roadside applications
The tool boasts almost unlimited applications where heat is needed to heat ferrous metal, including the removal of rusted and corroded fasteners, and thread-lock compounded nuts and bolts. For example this includes the removal of wheel nuts, brake bleeder nuts, exhaust manifold bolts, in-line applications, loosening steering bolts, and even tricky repairs such as all joint, drag link, drive chain, sprocket and gear removal.
