Electric Heater used to Eradicate Propane Gas

This contractor have been using an electric heater has been developed in order to eradicate the use of propane gas on construction sites.

The Etorch is a Hot Air torch that replaces the conventional gas torch in the drying and activation of self-adhesive bituminous membranes in the field sheet and up-stand application. It completes the drying process effectively and efficiently on a variety of decks and substrates such as plywood, screed, old felt and asphalt.

The Etorch is electrically powered with no naked flames making it inherently safe to use. The control software of the product maintains the predetermined temperature throughout the operation using mirroring thermocouple censoring. The control systems ensure the equipment operates at the selected temperature and with optimum power.

The burn risk to operatives is all but eliminated with the equipment shrouded providing cool surfaces. The fire risk at point of use or to adjacent buildings is all but eliminated as well due to super heated dry air and not a flame. The focused air stream is directed onto the work face using a unique set of nozzles.

Using an electrically operated piece of equipment as a primary heat source avoids the safety and quality control issues arising from the use of LPG gas torches.
