Master Launches Proheat Heat Gun with LCD

Master Launches Proheat Heat Gun with LCD

The new Master Appliance Proheat LCD Programmable Heat Gun Kit (PH-1500K) is a professional’s dream come true. If you’ve got to use a heat gun regularly, this just may be the tool you’re looking for. The PH-1500 has six preset & customizable program settings with digital display of temperature and air flow settings. Having a fully programmable heat and air flow removes the guess work out of the heating job. Now you can dial in exactly what you need, when you need it. The tool features adjustable temperature in 10 degree increments from 130 to 1000 degrees F in your choice of degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. The air flow is even adjustable from 4 to 16 CFM (113 – 453 l/min.)

The Proheat LCD Heat Gun uses an electronic closed loop temperature control system that maintains constant temperature when varying air flow or using specialty attachments. In terms of design, the heat gun looks comfortable enough, though Master Appliance didn’t go to too much trouble to provide any rubber overmold or other comfort grip on the handle. It will be up to the pros to report back any issues with comfortability after extended periods of use.

A Temperature & Air Flow Lock-In feature provides added management control and is perfect for production applications requiring consistent and longer duration application of heat. A power-interrupt Reset is present for added safety, and prevents the heat gun, which draws some serious wattage, from causing damage if left in the “Hot” position during a power failure, when the power eventually returns.
