Most commonly used in the plumbing industry, the Rothenburger Superfire 2 is a torch that heats pipes for adjustments and slight curvatures. It also helps to tighten fittings and create a seal to prevent leaking. This torch runs on a lightweight propane cylinder. The flame is adjustable to ensure the proper heat ratio for the project at hand. To use this torch effectively, consumers may want adaptors and extra burn tubes.
This tool is also useful in the automotive industry where parts require fabrication. It heats metal and copper easily so that it can be bent, cut, and shaped into the right size for the application. You can find the Rothenburger Superfire 2 and several accessories, including pipe slices and bending tools, on eBay. With your plumbing torch, you can take care of some of your own repairs at home or fix an unexpected leak in a tire along the side of the road.
