TEC Torch Thermal Breaching Tool

In emergency rescue situations, every second counts, so when a product comes along that can potentially shorten the time it takes for first responders to get to those in trouble, we take note. The TEC Torch, a handheld breaching tool that can sever a 5/8″ steel bar in less than one second, is one of those products.

It looks like thermal magic, but really, it uses a combustion products that are pushed through a nozzle to heat and melt any metallic object. It’s non-explosive, and it’s completely safe for trained personnel to use. It releases a combination of vaporized metal and particulate that heats up to over 4000 degrees F and simply heats targets above their melting points to erode them away. The fiery mixture is housed in cartridges specifically engineered to contain the intense pressure and thermal energy without backlash or injury. The torch itself measures just 1-1/2″ in diameter, and it’s just 12″ to 14″, depending on the cartridge used. [Purchase]
