You can purchase additional Coil Variety Packs when your coils wear out after approximately 200 uses. Additionally, here are other optional accessories that will help you remove even more stuck or seized parts on cars, trucks and farming equipment – faster and safer than a torch.

How to Extend Induction Heating Coil Life to 200+ Uses

Friday, May 18, 2018

Whether you are involved in automotive, trucking, farming, or other vehicle and equipment repair, here are some tips for how to maximize coil life for your Mini-Ductor® model and the U-555 Mini-Ductor attachment for the Pro-Max and Max models of the Inductor Series®:

  • To avoid overheating and damaging your coils, use the device for two minutes on, two minutes off – on Mini-Ductor models, the inverter will automatically shut off if it overheats
  • Keep space between your coil and the bolt, fastener, bearing, etc. and your coil – the part doesn't need to get red hot; just heat for 5-10 seconds and, if it's difficult to get off, heat for another 5 seconds
  • When using the 41" or 96" Bearing Buddy: use a plumber's mat to avoid abrasion and overheating

How to Extend Bearing Buddy Coil Life

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Induction Heating Bearing Buddy

While mechanics, bodyshops, truck technicians, and farmers love their Mini-Ductor® Venom® and Mini-Ductor II induction heating tools, their safety and effectiveness are dependent on the state of the pre-formed coils used with them.

The Inductor® coils are vital accessories for technicians and we're often asked by customers for tips and advice on how to extend the life of our coils.

For example, the Bearing Buddy coil (available in both 41" and 96" lengths) is used to free steering and suspension parts, frozen O² sensors, remove ball joints and tie-rod ends. These coils are available in regular or long sizes.

Each coil will last several hundred uses, but avoiding abrasion and overheating, which can breach the insulation, prevents premature wear.
