US Patent No. 6,207,085
plumbingwebconnection.com RectorSeal® Corp., Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality plumbing and HVAC/R products, acquired the total assets of G-O-N® LLC., Scottsdale, Ariz., recently.
The five-year-old G-O-N is the originator of the Glue-On-Nozzle (www.glueonnozzle.com), a patented, decorative nickel-bronze downspout for commercial building roof drains. The Glue-On-Nozzle is the plumbing and building industries’ only decorative downspout with a theft-resistant glue-on design that’s applied with solvent cement and installed after the wall or building is completed.
“We had the opportunity to buy a company with a ‘best-in-class’ product, so we took advantage of it,” said Larry Kaiser, vice president, RectorSeal. “The Glue-On-Nozzle fits nicely into our expanding plumbing product line that’s sold through wholesale distributors.”
RectorSeal® Corp., Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products, has acquired the total assets of Novent Cap LLC, Yorba Linda, Calif., the originator of the Novent® tamper-resistant locking cap for air-conditioning unit refrigerant access ports.
The March 15, 2012 acquisition, plus the recent development of its own GasGuard™ locking cap brand, now positions RectorSeal as the market-share leading manufacturer for one of the HVAC/R industry’s fastest growing market. Sharply increasing locking cap sales across the nation are being driven by the recent trends of teenage huffing deaths and black market refrigerant theft due to the inherently easy access of air-conditioning equipment Schraeder valves. The United Parents to Restrict Open Access to Refrigerants (UPROAR) (www.uproarorg.org), a lobbying group of parents who have lost children to huffing, recommends Novent locking caps on its website. Locking caps also have an environmental impact as their O-ring seals minimize refrigerant losses due to leaking Schraeder valves.
Fort Worth, Texas–The hundreds of HVAC/R contractors expected to attend air conditioning system classes at distributor, Quietside’s newly-expanded training center will learn as much about installation aesthetics as they will about Samsung’s Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems.
“There’s an HVAC/R trend that’s pressuring contractors to make an air-conditioning installations look as good as they function,” said Matt Wall, system air conditioning engineering and VRF technical trainer, Quietside-Texas, Fort Worth, Texas, which is the master distributor of Samsung air conditioning products in North America. ”Architects and engineers are realizing the visual impact a competed project makes on building owners and prospective clients can greatly affect their future business. Air conditioning systems can’t just work well anymore, they have to look great tooThis aesthetics trend was the Quietside technical support staff’s impetus for showcasing not only Samsung’s DVM Plus III Series VRF equipment, but also accessories that create a professional appearance. Therefore, Wall specified Aspen Pumps for condensate management, the PD-Series of lineset ducting and Big Foot Systems equipment mounts for supporting the VRF–all which is available from the new Engineered Products division of RectorSeal Corp., Houston.
a new trend of inhaling poisonous refrigerant out of HVAC/R outdoor units. One solution is to prevent access to refrigerants by installing locking caps, such as GasGuard, which is now an International Mechanical Code mandate for new installations. By 2015, the IMC will require all contractors to install a locking cap of some kind any time they open a system–old or new.
But don’t take our word for it about this shocking trend. Here are some excerpts from the United Parents to Restrict Open Access to Refrigerants (UPROAR) website.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nationwide, 13.3% (up from 12.4% in 2005) of all surveyed students had used inhalants to get high one or more times during their life (lifetime inhalant use).
For more refrigerant specific stats: An analysis of 144 Texas death certificates by the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse involving misuse of inhalants found that the most frequently mentioned inhalant (35%) was Freon (51 deaths). Of the Freon deaths, 42 percent were students or youth with a mean age of 16.4 years.
