HB-2 Dual Zone Explosion Proof Composite Repair System

WichiTech Industries, Inc. redefines the Explosion Proof Hot Bonder by offering an HB2005E that requires no hoses, either for pressurization of the case or for a venturi to generate vacuum. Tested by an independent laboratory, Dayton T. Brown, the WichiTech Explosion Proof Hot Bonder is in full compliance with NEC for Class 1, Division 1 and MIL-STD-810F hazardous environments operation. WichiTech’s HB-2, P/N F4HB2005E, NSN 4920-01-553-8724RN is a Dual Zone unit with a built-in electric vacuum pump. The HB2005E is capable of operating on 85-265 VAC, 47-440 Hz. Using 400 Hz 115 V generated by the planes engine or APU, the HB2005E becomes a truly portable Hot Bonder capable of being used anywhere at anytime. This is another “first” in the industry of Hot Bonding created by WichiTech and sets us further apart from our competition. The HB2005E has the standard features of light weight (38 lbs) in the same footprint as our regular HB2; sunlight readable display (unlike LCD’s); built-in storage; indestructible case; a library that will support 32 cures; free software updates for as long as you own the unit; and a three year warranty. Service and calibration remain at 72 hours turnaround on average.

Additions to the HB2005E are the ability to link to dual PC’s in realtime operation; built-in vacuum adjustment; and an additional vacuum port per zone. The HB2005E can be operated in either automatic or manual mode.
