Successful Farming Magazine

In a recent issue of Successful Farming Magazine, our very own Mini-Ductor® Venom® portable induction heater—ideal for repairing a wide variety of agriculture equipment—was profiled.

A Farmer's Review

"If you've ever had to use a torch to heat up a rusted or stuck nut or bolt, then you'll quickly appreciate the Mini-Ductor induction heater, observes Dave Nelson. 'I was amazed by how fast it turned a nut red hot,' the Belmond, Iowa, farmer says.

WWII Mk 18 Torpedo Repaired with Induction Heating

Submarines and torpedoes have been used in warfare since World War I. Unfortunately, it wasn't until late 1943 that the U.S. Navy built a reliable torpedo. In early WWII, the Mark 14 was the torpedo of choice; however, it had fatal errors that made its impact highly uncertain – it wouldn't always explode on impact. Because of this, the Mark 18 was born.

The USS Pampanito was a submarine used in WWII, which was later converted into a museum in 1981. The museum aims "to bring maritime history to life, and to make the USS Pampanito as complete and accurate to her 1945 configuration as possible." The museum hosts more than 4,000 students in its day and overnight programs, as well as approximately 100,000 visitors annually.

Induction Heaters vs. Torches for Farming Equipment Repair

Farming Harvesting Combine

Some of the most complex machinery is found on farms, sometimes totaling 60+ bearings per machine. These bearings and other parts can be nestled deep inside the machine, requiring the removal of many elements around them; this makes any small repair into a much bigger one if you are using a traditional gas torch.

While the torch is a tried and true tool used in a wide variety of vehicular repairs, it is an outdated solution that may be more dangerous than it’s worth. Hovering an open flame dangerously close to flammable debris is a recipe for disaster – especially since equipment fires on farms cause nearly $20 million in damages every year in the United States.

Farmers understand how important it is to prevent fires, specifically during the dry, warm harvesting season. So why are you so quick to pick up a torch to do your mechanical repairs?
