How to Remove Recessed Lug Nuts with Induction Heat
Do you need to remove recessed lug nuts that you can’t remove with a lug wrench and breaker bar?
Until now, mechanics and others have had to turn to the torch or freezing these lug nuts and breaking them with a hammer and chisel – risking damage to the wheel stud, rim and the wheel itself. Induction heating can get the job done, but what happens when there’s not enough room for the coil to fit around the lug nut?
The Mini-Ductor is the professional’s choice handheld, flameless torch and leverages the power of Invisible Heat® to heat ferrous metals in seconds. Using high frequency magnetic fields, the Mini-Ductor releases corroded or frozen hardware and other metallic components from corrosion and threadlock compounds – all without the collateral damage normally associated with torches.
Using one of the included coils that can flex around corners a flame cannot, the Mini-Ductor heats a 3/4″ nut red hot in 15 seconds.
Thin Wall Induction Heating Coils
Higher quality and custom wheels often use recessed lug nuts where the space between the nut and the wheel is pretty tight, making it hard to get a normal sized induction heating coil in there. Now you can now get in there with our thin wall coil to apply induction heat. The thin wall coil is an optional accessory for use with the Mini-Ductor Venom™ and Mini-Ductor II.
