In Focus: Induction Innovations Mini-Ductor Venom

Feb. 3, 2017
The Mini-Ductor Venom generates heat without open flame.

The Induction Innovations Mini-Ductor Venom generates "invisible heat" to release ferrous and some non-ferrous metals from corrosion and thread lock compounds without the dangers of open flame. This tool will turn a 3/4” nut red-hot in 15 seconds. It can be used to easily release seized nuts/bolts from corrosion or thread lock compounds; remove/release steering/suspension components, fuel tank straps, inline connectors, Zerk fittings, manifold bolts, truck bed bolts, seat belt bolts, U-bolts, tie rod sleeves/ends, soft hail dents, metal fabrication, soldering and heat treating. It also can be used to remove heavy undercoatings applied over hardware. 

Application

The Mini-Ductor Venom generates heat without the dangers of open flame. It can be used for a variety of applications, including steering/suspension components, bearings, fuel tank straps, soft hail dents and more. 

Selling points

  • Coils lock down with one simple turn (no more thumb screws), and Venom works with all Mini-Ductor coils.
  • Venom’s lightweight, ergonomic design allows for induction heat to access hard-to-reach places more easily.
  • A red LED will light under fault conditions and a green LED lights while the trigger is active and the tool is heating properly.
  • As long as the tool is powered and the internal power supply is operating, the LED will remain lit when the switch is on.
  • Venom has a two-year parts and labor warranty.

Features and benefits

  • The Mini-Ductor Venom generates "invisible heat" to release ferrous and some non-ferrous metals from corrosion and thread lock compounds up to 90 percent faster, without the dangers of open flame.
  • 3/4” nuts are turned red hot in less than 15 seconds.
  • Venom’s feature set allows users to repair vehicles and equipment faster, safer and more profitably, and to salvage parts normally discarded.

Origin

The Mini-Ductor Venom was created as an enhancement from Induction Innovation's Mini-Ductor II. It was developed based on feedback from users of the Mini-Ductor II (what they liked, what they felt could be improved). Some of the enhancements include:

  • Angled design with trigger
  • Coil twist lock
  • LED usage indicator
  • Fault override delay
  • Fan operation enhancements
  • User-controlled LED switch
