What is the building hair dryer, and what kinds of work can be using it to perform

There is a lot of work that can be performedConstruction hairdryer.In particular, it:

# 1. dried glue, filler, joints or stucco tiles, the joints of the material before laying insulation.

# 2. take away from the windows, the floor and furniture varnish or paint residues, veneer or wallpaper, tiles or parquet.It uses hot air and a spatula-scraper.

# 3. Shape PVC and polystyrene products (at 300 degrees).Well, at 500 degrees, and you can work with acrylic, and plexiglas.Copes hair dryer building with pipes and rods made of polyurethane.

# 4. unfreeze the frozen gutters, pipes, locks, removes ice from the steps and wires.

# 5. disinfect wood, killing bugs and microorganisms destroy the nests built in the rock wall or the blind area.

# 6. great items are glued with contact adhesive, increasing the exposure period and heating the joints.In addition, the building will help accelerate the hair setting two-component adhesives, remove the stickers from PVC, unscrew the screw attached to the adhesive.

# 7. zapressuyte junction and hot PVC pipes, hoses and handles give the desired shrinkage.

# 8. overlapping pieces welded PVC film, tarpaulin.Chunks of floor coverings made of PVC heat gun connect a welding rod.Melt bitumen, can be repaired using a Thermo roof, and a bituminous roofing material and cardboard - cut or weld.

# 9. a sealed tube using a tin or silver solder.For the latter need a temperature below 400 degrees.Water pipes made of copper, wire and cable ends can be easily solder (or unsolder) Building hairdryer.

As you can see, the application of hot air gun quite extensive, so having such a tool in the economy is extremely useful.Let's look at some of its properties and characteristics you need to look for when buying.

Technical specifications to consider when selecting a construction dryer

In general, all models of constructive industrial hairdryers are almost indistinguishable from each other.Ceramic insulator with disposed thereon a heating element (coil) located in a sturdy plastic casing, resistant to high temperatures.Even an electric motor with one or two impellers operating at high speeds.Its mission - to overtake the nozzle air heating coil, where it begins to work, getting on the guide surface.Next, we consider the main technical parameters of the device that must be considered when choosing.

The device is the dryer
construction device dryer.

Maximum temperature of the air stream, performance, power

maximum permissible operating temperature of most models will be 600 or 650 degrees.Although there are very strong and instances in which this parameter reaches 750 or 800 degrees.

amount of air flowing through the air gun per unit of time, determines its performance.Models of the middle class, this value ranges from 200 to 650 liters per minute.This parameter is directly connected to the heating temperature.By increasing the heating temperature and productivity, the apparatus will have more room.Its capacity is made up of the capacity of the fan coil, and will also increase.Capacity varies from 500 to 2500 watts.If it is more than 2,000 watts, prepared for the fact that the instrument would be dimensional, heavy and if you choose a device for home use, you are looking at a model with a capacity of up to 2000 watts.

Adjusting volume charge air

important indicator is the volume of charge air adjustment.This adjustment is not available in all models, but it can be extremely useful if the entire surface of overheating, which made the work is not desirable or part being treated is very light and can be simply deflated air flow.

Adjusting the volume of air

Temperature control heating

possibility of temperature control - an important parameter.It provides the opportunity to adjust the master device to work with a variety of materials.If the dryer has a class of "hobby", then this adjustment will step type (there are 2 or 3 fixed values).

Stepped adjustment of temperature

professional models have adjustable interesting - smooth.They are immune to any material, even very difficult to process.The method of adjustment can be an electronic or a slide.

Infinitely adjustable temperature

electronic system maintain the set temperature

system maintain a certain temperature (otherwise, the stabilization of the heat flow) is executed on the electronic circuit.It allows you to maintain a constant temperature of the escaping air and saves heating coil from premature wear.Usually in such devices it has built-in memory that stores the temperature up to the next power.Working with such devices more comfortable and faster, but it is usually a professional model, facing expensive.Therefore, if you choose the tools for home work, this is not your option.

rinsing of cold air

presence of blowing cold - a great benefit.Cool, for example, place the cool air soldering pipes made of plastic, it is possible to reduce the total time.After waiting until the hot seat to cool itself, is not necessary.Depending on the model and the manufacturer, it is a constructive exercise in two ways: off the spiral or the presence of the second nozzle.The second method is more modern and "advanced", but first you can quickly spiral cool after work, packing unit.Besides the presence of the second nozzle device with a cold blowing, allows for pasting of thermoplastic materials, when the first nozzle will heat up and the other immediately cool the bonded surface.

presence filter incoming air

filter incoming air is good when the device is to be used where there is often full of construction dust.She is getting inside the building dryer with air, can quickly bring down a spiral.When the air passes through the filter is easily removable, then this problem becomes.

presence control display

When performing fine work overheating or inadequate heating of the workpiece can damage the item.In this case, you want to consistently produce temperature control air flow.The control display can be made with a small screen and with the help of LED backlight.

overheating protection function

"Thermostop" disables the thermocouple when overheated.And this can happen when a technical hair dryer works perpendicular to the surface of the material.The air flow goes first to the treated surface and then is pushed from it, themselves on the helix.This leads to overheating.

Availability thermofilter

shell casing for heat protection is on the tube through which air is fed into the device.It can be either a removable or non-removable type.In the first case, the cover in some situations, can be removed.For example, to get into any slot.At the same time you need to work carefully so as not to get burns, and the material is not damaged.Housing construction dryer always made of a material having insulating properties.

handle shape and type

mainly handle in these devices are shaped like a gun.However, it is inconvenient if the use of the dryer building involves working in a remote place.And then it is better to use a cylindrical handle form a straight line.There are also models with a rotary handle.Well, when there are overlays on the handle against sliding.Also, the handle can be opened and closed.The second option is preferable, because it has to protect the worker from the hot particles and hot air.

methods parking

This device is quite "gentle" - when it falls often beats ceramic element or bursting spiral.Making a break, vertical construction will not put hair dryer, and can not be put side - problem.Therefore it is good when the power cord has a loop that allows the device to hang on a hook or nail.There are other options - sometimes on the body Melt specially made props and hooks.Then it can be installed on any flat base.

about weight, dimensions, power cord

Typically, these devices weigh from 500 g to 1 kg.Do not take more lightweight device, as this may affect the quality of housing and the handle.And power will be too small - not enough for her good work.Power coming from the network, you need a three-meter, not less.

We select option complete

Bits supplied to the building hair dryer, called nozzles, injectors or nozzles.Basically, they are cheap, and if necessary, you can always buy the right.Here is a list of basic tips.

# 1.Round focusing nozzles need to work with copper pipes and welding tape.

# 2. flat nozzles remove old paint, varnish, wallpaper, deform plastic sheets.

# 3. Reflex nozzle with rounded front tap is used to bend pipes from the polymer.

# 4. crevice tool will weld overlapping pieces of PVC.

# 5. cutting nozzle has the form of a flattened tube, they raskraivajut foam.

# 6. side of the nozzle (with protection glasses) to help clean up the window frame without heating the glass itself.

# 7. SLR nozzles welded plastic.

Attachment to the heat gun

more Melt can be equipped with additional handle, scrapers and rollers for welding rods and adapters (for joining thin nozzles).All this fits in a suitcase.Not bad, if it is made of metal - for such devices is very fragile.

final choice: a synthesis and a couple of tips

deciding which building to choose hair, you need to know exactly what will be used by the device.Building dryers, as well as any other tools can be divided into two categories, it is consumer and professional.

Amateur hairdryer technical approach if:

  • time of continuous operation, which you will need no more than 15 minutes;
  • desired maximum heating temperature air does not exceed 560 0 C;
  • no need for continuously variable temperature control.

The most important thing that the brand was reliable.A good device from Bosch and Makita, AEG, Steinel and Skill, Metabo, Kress, Sparki, DeWalt, Black & amp; Decker.

Professional Building hair needs if you need:

  • feature continuously variable temperature control;
  • function of the electronic system of temperature stabilization;
  • presence of a removable heat shield;
  • presence of closed arm.

As for the producers, in this segment of the market luchsche all proven manufacturers such as: Bosch, DeWALT, Makita, Metabo, Steinel.

Tips Operating

Council 1. to the fuser is not out of order, direct the air at an angle of 45 degrees.According to some estimates 95% of all construction breakdowns fen is due to overheating, so the tool is important to know how to use it.

Council 2. Do not use near flammable, flammable liquids.

Council 3. Keep the device and the surface treatment is not overheated.But the hand did not check the temperature of the air - get burned.

Council 4. After working termofenu let cool - do not touch its surface.Note that much on a hot day to cool parts of the instrument may be a long time.

Council 5. paint or lacquer remove only the scraper (included), with wear a respirator.

Council 6. work best outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.

Council 7. unattended switched network technical hair can not leave.
