We help people repair plastic
This video will demonstrate how to replace the airless heating element in Polyvance or Urethane Supply Company airless welders. This procedure is also applicable to the airless component of the 6056 nitrogen plastic welder.
If you have a Model 3, 4, or 5 Airless Plastic Welder and you are replacing the element with the newer, ceramic heater element, you will need the 5500-C Retrofit Terminal Kit to install the element onto your welder. This way, you won't need top cut wires and crimp connectors. It makes for a much cleaner installation.
Make sure your welder is cool and disconnected from the power before you begin the repair.
Always wear proper safety gear while working!

This video will demonstrate how to replace the airless heating element in Polyvance or Urethane Supply Company airless welders. This procedure is also applicable to the airless component of the 6056 nitrogen plastic welder. Make sure your machine is disconnected from power before you begin.
For this repair, you will need a small Phillips head screwdriver, a five-sixteenth inch socket, channel locks, needle nose pliers, and one 6012 replacement heating element assembly. Remove the faceplate of the temperature control box. Using pliers if necessary, carefully disconnect the three wires attached to the existing cord. To access the ground wire, unscrew the nut using the five-sixteenth inch socket. Remove only the top wire. Remove the strain relief using channel locks, and then pull the cord through the hole in the back of the box. Remove the strain relief from the old cord and reapply it to the new, using the channel locks to firmly tighten it.
Feed the wires of the 6012 replacement element into the box, and secure the strain relief into the fitting. For airless welders model 5 and earlier, apply a 5500-C retrofit adapter at this time. Fit the green and yellow striped ground wire over the bolt, and reapply the washer and nut. Connect the brown wire to the white wire attached to the faceplate. Connect the solid green wire to the socket on the wall of the box. Once you've finished, your wiring should look like this. Secure the faceplate and reapply the screw into the side of the box. Finally, remove the tip from your old welder and screw it into the new element assembly.
