Plumber performing work on the replacement of pipes, frames, counters or update circuits water to polypropylene tubes used for welding machines. In everyday life, they are called "soldering" or "iron". The principle of operation is based on heating the two parts at a temperature of 250-300 c., Followed by a compound. At cooling a seal is created monolithic.
In my practice I burned one machine did not work the thermostat. The heating element melted, hot aluminum stack on the floor. The benefit of the floor was concrete, building, rough finish. If on the floor to lay laminate or linoleum that I would get for the money.
Especially for readers of the channel of the experiments and burn old but working apparatus for soldering. In order to warn the experts in the field of plumbing and give advice to owners of apartments, so the property was not damaged.

Photo 2) Characteristics of "iron".
photo 3) Liquid thermostat bulb expansion which disconnects the unit from the power when the desired temperature, 300 g. Celsius. or less. If the temperature of the heating elements to reach 650 g. Aim the duralumin body melt, which can lead to fire. In order to load the thermostat is not necessary so that it was broken, or it needs to pull out of the heating element, which is what we will do.
We include our experimental tool in the supply chain. And waiting for heating.
Parallel shot video on how to melt our device. Video at end of article
After seven minutes, covering the heating element melts. Intentionally by our patient is laid linoleum, he kindled. Property damage, and if left unattended possible fire.
Put out the burned-out linoleum and pretty inhaling combustion products in the garage made a few photos for dear readers.
Safety precautions when working with svarochnikom (for owners of apartments).
1) Have plumbing metal stand under welding machine. When melting it protects the flooring.
2) Have a bucket of water stock. Perhaps the water will be turned off apartments, and fire pour nothing will...
3) Take away the children from the work area, is strictly forbidden to approach the soldering iron. In my practice, two children have been affected by their parents are not inspected. The plumber is not able to control everything around him. Especially your children.
I think the damage tool to delight the eyes of readers, worthy of likes, I hope not wasted on the experiment, work welder.
