Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about the package with the Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold (150W Temperature Controlled Soldering Pot – Blue + Golden (220In)), acquired on DX – DealExtreme, whose reported in the last article purchase.
The Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold is used to melt tin with the purpose of tinning wires, in other words, cover it with a thin layer of tin to avoid poor contact or shielding wires are inserted into connectors, such as loudspeakers for example.
The manual is in Chinese, but the use of Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold is quite simple. Simply place one or more bars of tin inside, adjust the temperature so that they melt and turn liquid. When the point, just will insert or fio, already bare, inside the pot. Optionally you can pass the wire into some folder / resin solder before dipping it in the pot, to facilitate adhesion of molten tin at the same.
Tin bars usually sold at electrical supply stores, with varying proportions of tin and lead. I bought some 50/50, in other words, 50% tin, and 50% of chumbo. It is not recommended to melt solder wire, they usually have in their connecting resin which helps to weld. This resin will partially separate metals, eventually burn also partially, and disrupt the homogeneity of the liquid in Pote de Solda.
The Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold works with voltage 220V, good for those who live in regions of Brazil where 220V is the standard, bad for me that I live in a region where the standard is 127V. As there is a potentiometer to control the temperature I had hopes that this would work in 127V, though less heating. But even putting the pot in it does not heat up enough, melting only the edges of the bar tin, even when on for a long time. The solution I found to not have to depend on single 220V outlet was buying a house Converter voltages Travel Singway 150W (Singway 150W 2-Way AC Travel Voltage Converter), used to convert 110V to 220V and vice versa, but I'll talk more about him in an upcoming article.
Another detail to note is that the Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold has power plug in standard Chinese / Australian / Argentine, which has been used in Brazil as making appliances, but it is incompatible with the new Brazilian standard. But this is easily solved with a adapter.
I whispers pelo Solder Pot Temperature Controlled 150W 220V - Blue and Gold version 150W, more to DX also has versions 100In, 250In, and 300In. Versions 100In, 150In, 250In, and 300In behave 300, 500, 1600 and 2300 gram of welding, respectively. The pots have diameters of 38mm, 50mm, 80mm e 100mm, respectively. The temperatures reached are similar: 200 450 º Celsius in the first two and 200 to 480 degrees Celsius in the last two. Then, in practice, choose the model according to the amount of welding you want to put into the pot at once. To mim, to 150In is of very good size.
