When properly maintained, Leister’s TRIAC S has proven be a durable and reliable hot-air welding tool. In most cases, taking a few extra minutes for simple preventative maintenance after every use can prolong the life of your TRIAC S and help to avoid unnecessary downtime.
In this video, Professor Bob Header, a certified Leister technical support representative, explains a few quick, simple things you can do to better maintain your Leister TRIAC S.
Specifically, Professor Bob will walk you through how to:
- Check, remove and clean the air filter so that airflow is not restricted, which can cause significant damage to the tool and reduce welding speed.
- Remove melted plastic from the nozzle using a steel brush to keep welding consistent.
- Cool down the TRIAC S before shutting it off to prolong the life of the heating element.
- Properly store the tool and keep it from being damaged by weather and other conditions.
Each of these preventative maintenance activities take mere minutes to complete, but can help to add years to the life of your TRIAC S.
However, sometimes issues are unavoidable with frequent use. If you are experiencing partial welding, or no welding at all, the majority of the time it may be associated with the heating element. Watch Professor Bob walk you through the process of checking and replacing a heating element.
If problems persist, it is recommended you contact a certified Leister service center to have your hot-air tool serviced and reconditioned.
