The ingenious design of the 330-3 soldering iron

The choice of gas

With this roofer soldering iron, you have the choice between propane or butane gas. For use with butane gas, the connection is direct. For use with propane gas, you must use a 2-bar Express regulator listed under part number 682. This allows you to work with an inlet pressure of between 2.5 and 16 bar, with a fixed outlet at 2 bar and a maximum flow rate of 8 kg/h.

The choice of lances

You can use any of the three roofer iron lances from the Express range dedicated to this product. These are the references 332 (20 x 2 mm purlin), 333 (24 x 3 mm purlin) and 335 (30 x 3 mm purlin).

Easy to operate

The professional roofer soldering iron has a swivel handle. This prevents your gas pipe from being rolled up. The combustion is controlled from the handwheel, with a simple adjustment that guarantees a regular flow and a constant flame. The side deflector is made of stainless steel.

The finishing touches are, of course, well done. The 330-3 professional soldering iron is a quality tool that stands out for its exceptional sophistication and very low price.
