Original Press Release:
TurboTorch Offers HVAC and Plumbing Professionals New Air Acetylene Deluxe Tote Kits
Expand Soldering and Brazing Capabilities with MC Tote Kit and B Tote Kit St. Louis, MO (May 24, 2006) -- TurboTorch® is delivering best-in-class performance and value with their two recently introduced Air Acetylene Deluxe Tote Kits. Whether you are brazing ¾" with an MC Tank or soldering 2 " tubing with a B tank, these kits provide everything you need. Both the MC Tote Kit and the B Tote Kit feature two of their most popular tips -- an Extreme® self-lighting tip and an Extreme® standard tip. Each of the new totes also includes an ergonomic handle with quick disconnect and a tank tote that conveniently stores the hose as well as additional tips. The new totes from Turbo Torch deliver the ultimate tools to expand soldering and brazing capabilities. The TurboTorch Extreme line of kits has been the industry standard for decades. Tests continue to prove that the Extreme series is the hottest torch in the market today - up to 40 percent hotter than competitive torches. The Extreme series torches reduce labor time and fuel consumption. "The advantage of these kits is that they allow the HVAC or Plumbing pro a single tool to attack different jobs that may require different size tips," said Hugo Morales, Marketing Manager-Retail Distribution. "Without this advantage, most professions tend to throttle down torches when moving to smaller tubing. This action significantly shortens the life of the tip. By using a kit with several tips, the pro can not only extend the life of the tips, but he will work safer and more efficiently by using the proper tip for the job. TurboTorch is the only manufacturer in the market that includes these bonus tips with these kits."
