RectorSeal® Introduces Flaretite,the HVAC/R Tubing Flare Leak Preventative

RectorSeal®, Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality HVAC/R tools and accessories, has been named the master distributor in the North America and Australia HVAC/R markets for the Flaretite seal. Flaretite, Brighton, Mich., is the industry’s only gasket-like seal designed specifically for making a tight, leak-resistant connection between flared tubing connections used in air-conditioning/refrigeration applications.

The Flaretite seal is a stamped copper ring with concentric ridges formed by a baked-on Loctite Vibra-Seal coating. The ridges create multiple sealing points of contact to prevent leaks from copper tubing flare connections used with 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, and 3/4-inch (6, 7.5, 12, 16, 19-mm) refrigeration linesets. The purple (color-coded for HVAC/R applications) coating is a dried, pliable sealant that flexes into pits, micro depressions, scratches and other imperfections that potentially lead to refrigerant leaks from copper tubing flares. Flaretite also features three stamped notches to help clip-seal it and hold it in place during compression fitting tightening.

The Flaretite seal is tried and true and has over a decade of proven performance in the refrigeration industry,” said Kirk Lewandowski, director of operations, Flaretite.
Flaretite also complements the 2018 introduction of RectorSeal’s PRO-Fit™ Precision Flare Kit, the next generation pipe flaring tool for copper and aluminum tubing used in air conditioning and refrigeration applications. Using the PRO-Fit in conjunction with Flaretite provides the ultimate in leak prevention for flared connections.

Flaretite is packaged in 21 skus with four-color labeling:

  • Clamshell J-hook merchandiser of 10 units in all five sizes;
  • Clamshell combo mini-split kit of two different size pairs that fit inlet and outlet flare sizes of a lineset’s liquid and suction lines;
  • Four-compartment case that houses 36-pieces of nine units each in 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8-inch sizes;
  • Box of 100 in all five sizes;
  • And a box of 200 in 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8-inch sizes.
  • Flaretite carries a one-year warranty.

RectorSeal Acquires All-Access™ Brand of HVAC Condensate Management Products

All-Access Family of Products by RectorSealHouston–RectorSeal LLC, a manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products and operating subsidiary of CSW Industrials, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSWI), recently acquired the assets of MSD Research including its All-Access brand of air conditioning system condensate management products.

All-Access is a leading brand of air conditioning mechanical float switches, drain line cleanout devices and supporting accessories invented by Stuart Oakner, MSD Research president. Recent revisions to the International Mechanical Code’s (IMC) condensate drain line maintenance section has increased All-Access’ popularity among HVAC service technicians, especially products featuring an easy entry cleanout design that eliminates the need to cut the 3/4-inch drain pipe for access. While All-Access complies with new construction codes, it also complements RectorSeal’s renowned retrofit-oriented Safe-T-Switch®, the HVAC industry’s leading condensate overflow cutoff switch product line.

“All-Access products will ensure we’re providing the best condensate management products to the industry, especially for new construction,” said Jeff Underwood, RectorSeal’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

Oakner, a former 25-year veteran HVAC contractor licensed in Florida and prolific inventor, will now assume roles of inventor-in-residence and consultant for RectorSeal as part of the acquisition. “I am pleased to be supporting the RectorSeal product development team,” said Oakner. “The vast product development resources available at RectorSeal will help support and advance the development of many future innovative products for HVAC/R and other construction industries.”

Traditional HVAC/R distributors will be able to buy All-Access products from RectorSeal, which is transitioning its marketing, sales and customer support for All-Access and merging the www.allaccessdevice.com website into www.rectorseal.com.

The All-Access transaction is RectorSeal’s sixth acquisition since 2011 when it acquired Airtec, Fall River, Mass. Other recent acquisitions include Resource Conservation Technologies (AquaGuard®) electronic condensate management sensors and switches, Glue-On-Nozzle, SureSeal®, the Evo-Crete and PolySlabbrands from Australian-based Evolve Group, and AC Leak Freeze® refrigerant leak sealants. “We will continue to aggressively seek acquisitions of HVAC products that complement our current offering for contractors,” said Underwood. “We will also continue building on the model of working with inventors of great products after they sell. We see a huge value in involving them with the creation of the next generation of innovative products that will help trade people perform tasks quickly and more effectively.”
