The Steinel 34838 classic heat gun kit includes the HL 1910 E heat gun, which emits airstreams at 3.6, 10.6, or 17.6 cubic feet per minute (CFM) at temperatures ranging from 120 to 1,100 degrees F. The gun’s temperature setting can be varied continuously over the full temperature range at the 10.6 and 17.6 CFM airflow stages, and is fixed at 120 degrees F at the 3.6 CFM cool air stage. Similar in shape to a hair dryer, the gun is lightweight and balanced to reduce fatigue. Each coil in the heating element is encapsulated in ceramic to extend coil life and provide even heat. The kit includes reflector nozzles, a reducer nozzle, and a carrying case for safe transport and storage. It is suitable for many applications from applying shrink tubing and activating adhesives to working plastics and other heat sensitive materials.

Heat guns are hand tools that emit a stream of heated air at variable temperatures up to 1,300 degrees F (700 C). Most guns have an electrical heating element to control output temperatures and adjustable fan motors to regulate and focus airflow. Heat guns with high airflow output (greater than approximately 20 cubic feet per minute) are sometimes called heat blowers. Heat guns can be used for a variety of applications ranging from copper and plastic welding to touching up shrink wrap. Accessory nozzles (sold separately) are used to shape the air stream over a wider area, or direct it around pipes and tubing for even heating which prevents adjoining surfaces (such as panes of glass) from overheating, and some heat gun models incorporate workbench stands to allow hands-free operation.
Steinel manufactures heat guns, glue guns, gas torches, and sensors. The company, founded in Germany in 1959, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 standards and is Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant.
