This is the replacement element for the Mini-Weld Model 7 Airless Plastic Welder. The previous design had a Ni-Chrome wire that, like a light bulb, would seem to burn out at the most inopportune time. This design, however, has a ceramic element that lasts WAY longer. In fact, we put this element on our cycle-tester to see how long it would last. The cycle tester would turn on the element for 30 minutes, then turn off the element for 30 minutes. This cycle happened 24 times a day for 9 months (a total of 6,500 cycles) and the element never burned out.
Here is another great thing about this element. In the unlikely event that the ceramic core burns out, you can replace just the ceramic core! Of course, what is more likely to happen is that the ceramic element will break if you happen to drop the element assembly.
We got tired of dealing with suppliers who said "this is what we have to offer. Take it or leave it." So, we started from scratch and designed our own.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
How many ohms resistance should the element show on a multi-meter when I test my element?
The resistance of the element should be in the range of 50 to 55 ohms.
I have an older Model 6 welder and the element is burned out. May I replace that element with the Ceramic element?
Yes! The 6012 Ceramic element will wire up to a Model 6 welder with no modifications necessary.
