Mini-Ductor Accessory How to Get More out of Your Mini-Ductor

The Mini-Ductor® has been the leading portable induction heater since it was released in 2004. Now in its third generation, the Mini-Ductor Venom comes with the Coil Variety Pack, which includes three coils: the 7/8" Pre-Formed Coil (MD99-601), 23" U-Form Coil (MD99-602) and 41" Bearing Buddy Coil (MD99-603).

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
