Heat Shrink Torch Kits | Cable Jointers Heat Shrink Gas Torches
The Sievert Pro series of cable jointers heat shrink gas torch kits meet a high standard for carrying out professional heat shrinking work on Low, Medium & High Voltage 11kV-33kV cable installations – this includes the application of heat to thin, medium and thick wall heat shrink tubes and components such as cable breakouts and cable caps when installing LV HV Joints & Terminations up to 33kV.
The Jointers Gas Torch Kits are supplied in durable impact resistant carrying cases to protect and store all the components items safely when working in often challenging workplace locations such as cable trenches and substations – the heat shrink gas torches are also used to install cable repair sleeves for repairing sheath damage.

Medium & High Voltage Jointers Gas Torches
The below tables features all products in the heat shrink torch kit suitable for cable jointers heating tasks carried out by LV HV cable jointers – each gas flame torch includes a 4 metre long high-pressure hose, regulator, 38mm and 50mm gas burner head ideal for shrinking joints and terminations manufactured from heat shrink components and tubings.
To avoid over-heating and blister damage to the heat shrink tubes, joints and terminations the following should be observed:
- Ensure heat shrink gas torch is used in well ventilated locations
- Adjust the gas torch to obtain a soft blue flame with a yellow tip
- Pencil-like blue flames should be avoided when jointing and terminating cables
- Keep the gas torch aimed in the shrink direction to preheat the tubings
- Keep the flame moving continuously to avoid scorching the heat shrink material
- Jointer should shrink the heat shrink tube at the position recommended in the installation instruction
The Jointers Kit ordered according to Sievert 721511 includes:
- 4 X Promatic Burners
- 1 X Promatic Handle
- POL Regulator
- Propane Gas Hose
Pictured Opposite – this photograph provided by a Jointer Training Centre shows a trainee undergoing the installation of MV Heat Shrink Terminations using an inadequate and unsuitable gas torch. The intensity and localised overheating generated by the gas torch to the semicon heat shrink tube is clearly visible – notice the surface damage to the black heat shrink tubes, the “blistering” and “bubbling” effect will overtime cause cable terminations to fail if correct heat shrink heating tools are not used by the Jointer.
|Heat Shrink Torch Kit Part Number||Description||Product Information||Technical Information||Image|
|336611||Promatic handle||Plastic composite handle reinforced with 30% glass fibres for maximum durability. Double moulded soft grip for highest comfort and usability. Piezo ignition with instant trigger on/off function. Bayonet fitting for burners. Swivelling hose connection to avoid hose drag. Combined suspension hook and footstand. Valve for precise flame setting. Delivered without hose nipple.||
Working pressure 1.5 to 4 Bar
|334891||Soft flame burner for cable jointing and heat shrinking 50mm 26Kw||Soft flame design ideal for cable work and other heat shrinking applications for joints and terminations. Soft flame burns with sweeping powerful yellow and blue soot-free windproof flames. Fresh air sucks in and keeps the burner head cold to minimize the risk of burning the shrink material. To heat the sleeves efficiently but still soft enough not to overheat the shrink material. Working pressure 2 Bar.||
Gas burner diameter 50mm
Gas consumption g/h at 2 Bar 2000 Effect kW 26
For thick wall heat shrink sleeves max mm 150mm
|334191||Soft flame burner for cable jointing and heat shrinking 38mm 11.5Kw||Soft flame design ideal for cable work and other heat shrinking applications for joints, terminations and cable repair work. Soft flame burns with sweeping powerful yellow and blue soot-free windproof flames. Fresh air sucks in and keeps the burner head cold to minimize the risk of burning the shrink material. To heat the sleeves efficiently but still soft enough not to overheat the shrink material. Working pressure 2 Bar.||
Gas burner diameter 38mm
Gas consumption g/h at 2 Bar 900 Effect kW 11.5
For thick wall heat shrink sleeves max mm 150mm
|334791||Standard burner for cable jointing and heat shrinking 19mm||Standard heat shrink burner with brush-type flames for all kinds of soft soldering/small heat applications. Silver soldering about 615°C. Working pressure 2 Bar.||
Gas burner diameter 19mm
Gas consumption g/h at 2 Bar 250 Effect kW 3.2
|717431||5mm high pressure hose 10m fixed and swivel||Sievert high pressure hoses conforms to the EN 559/ISO 3821 standards. Sievert hoses are also extra frost resistant and can be used in temperatures down to -30°C. The Sievert hose is designed with an inner layer of black gas resistant rubber, a middle layer of reinforcing weave to withstand high pressure and an outer orange coloured layer to protect against external damage, sunlight and ozone.||
BSP 3/8″ to BSP 3/8″ Connection
Inside Diameter 5mm
10 Meters Fixed & Swivel
|306111||Regulator with fixed pressure 4bar and hose failure valve||Sievert regulators are manufactured in brass to ensure the highest quality and long service life. The valves have very high capacity and precise outlet pressure. The hose failure valve improves safety by cutting off the gas flow in case of a hose rupture or some other major gas leak.||1.5 to 4 bar
