Master Intros Versatile Butane Heat Tool Kit
Ultratorch Butane heat tool kit.
Racine, WI — Master Appliance Corp. is introducing its new UT-100-TC Ultratorch® Professional Heat Tool Kit, comprised of the company's popular butane-powered UT-100 Ultratorch, a portable, multi-functional tool for use as a soldering iron, flameless heat tool, hot knife and brazing torch, which provides special advantages in tip quality, work efficiency, safety and operating cost.

The new kit also contains three Ultratip® soldering tips (including a high-powered chisel tip for use with thicker gauge wires), a hot knife tip, torch tip, hot air tip, heat shrink reflector, wire cutter, needle nose pliers, roll of 60/40 solder, sponge, cap and stand all packed in a sturdy, compact plastic storage/carrying case — everything needed to pinpoint heat, solder and desolder, remove surface mount components, heat shrink tubing and specialty connectors, repair vinyl, spot dry, cut or torch materials.

According to the company, it is the perfect kit for field service technicians, automotive mechanics, audio and security system installers, and other professionals working with electrical/electronic connections, wiring harnesses and heat shrink tubing.

The Ultratorch has adjustable temperature control for torch temperatures up to 2372°F (1260°C) and soldering temperatures up to 932°F (500°C). Hot air temperatures up to 1202°F (650°C) are suitable for environmental "heat and seal" connectors. Ultratorch soldering tips have Ultratip Technology, with an oxygen-free copper base, a ceramic catalyst and extra thick iron and chrome plating for longer tip life and superior thermal conductivity, for use with today's lead-free solder. The tool is light weight at just 3.7 ounces (90 grams), making it easier to hold and use over extended periods of time. A metal fuel tank provides capacity for up to two hours of use on a full charge.

The UT-100 has earned UL and GS/TUV listings for safety. The kit's storage case includes an open slot for a small can of the company's Ultratane® Butane fuel and an additional soldering tip. There are 15 optional soldering tips, hot air tips and shrink attachments available.
