Using a heat tool is an essential part of shrink wrapping objects of any size. Every piece of equipment can always break over time, however. In this blog we will talk about Shrinkfast 998 Heat Tool maintenance: what you should do to keep your Shrinkfast 998 heat tool in good condition and what to do if it breaks down.
The Shrinkfast 998 Heat Tool
Zormot offers the Shrinkfast 998 heat tool as a powerful, lightweight, safe, and flexible piece of equipment. It can be used to heat shrink film around items of any shape or side. Using 200,000 or more BTUs of power, it can shrinkwrap a standard pallet in less than two minutes’ time.
The Shrinkfast 998 has a patented combustion cycle that allows the flame to burn outside of the combustor which keeps the tool cool to the touch so it doesn’t burn the hands of the operator.
One preventable problem that we continue to see with this heat tool is the sockets and combustor heads burning up. This issue is caused by one of two things:
- The operator is using the tool while running low on propane
- The heat tool’s PSI is not set to 22 PSI
If you are using Shrinkwrap 998 with insufficient propane or the PSI incorrectly set, you may see damage like this:
