Pre-heating Tool

Fast, safe and time- and money-saving

The RiTeR Heating tool is the ultimate precision heating tool. This electronic tool heats by means of induction technology. Various ferrous metals can be heated with it from the inside. Characteristic for induction heating is that mainly the outer structural parts are heated; this in contrast to a gas burner which heats everything at the same time.

Due to the difference in temperature of the structural parts, they can be loosened more easily. Within tens of seconds, local heating is possible whereby the material becomes red-hot*. In the case of steel, the temperature is then between 300 and 600 degrees Celsius.

The RiTeR Heating tool is ideal for use on stuck or frozen metal materials.

The technique of local heating is very useful for sticking or freezing:

  • Nuts
  • Bolts
  • Fusees
  • Nipples
  • Bearings
  • And other structural parts

When they are located in places that regularly become hot, vibrate, oxidise or corrode, they can often not be loosened, or are very difficult to loosen with ordinary tools. A gas burner was often used for this purpose. This has the following disadvantages:

  1. The use of open fire in workshops is dangerous
  2. Safety requires the supervision of a colleague
  3. With the gas burner it is not possible to heat precisely, even parts that one does not want to heat are heated.

Our RiTeR Heating tool can also be used to easily remove stickers or paint.
