The Mini-Ductor® II +
A safe, fast and efficient way to remove problem exhaust bolts
Removing exhaust bolts is often a lengthy, difficult and frustrating task for motor mechanics. The nuts securing the bolts rust easily and as they are usually placed in inaccessible areas, it makes it very hard to remove them.
However, help is at hand. The Mini-Ductor® II + (MD800P) handheld induction heating tool, uses flameless heat that heats ferrous metal (containing iron), and some non-ferrous metal, parts in seconds. This allows all types of adhesives bonded to metal, bonded with thread lock compound and seized hardware to be removed and released much quicker and more safely than by traditional naked flame heating. And there’s no costly and time consuming damage to surrounding areas.
Made in the US by Induction International Inc., the Mini-Ductor® II + is known as a ‘must-have’ tool for professional mechanics.
Why use induction heating to remove an exhaust bolt instead of the naked flame method?
The Mini-Ductor® II + tool has multiple benefits that keep mechanics safer and it helps remove problem parts quickly and easily:
Safety – There’s no longer the need to use a naked flame, which risks a potential explosion by igniting fumes from the exhaust or fuel tank.
Works fast – The Mini-Ductor® II + bendable coils produce high frequency magnetic fields and they’re ideal for accessing hard to reach areas, such as where exhaust bolts sit. This ensures heat is localised on the problem part only, not the surrounding area. Using the coil, a ¾” nut is heated red hot in 15 seconds. The heat expands the nut and breaks down any corrosion.
Increased competitive advantage – The next time you have to quote a job with new parts because the old ones have rusty hardware that will be damaged in removal, consider the competitive advantage you could have if you didn’t damage those parts. There’s no need to force problem parts off when using the Mini-Ductor II® + .
Increased productivity and profits – As a result of these efficiencies, the Mini-Ductor® II + can help increase a garage’s productivity by over 50%. Because downtime is minimised, parts can be re-used and insurance premiums are reduced by typically 10-30% if an Oxy-Acetylene system is replaced with the Mini-Ductor®. So automotive professionals can save money and increase their profits.
