Comments Off on RectorSeal® Introduces Safe, Quick and Easy Leak Sealant Injection Method– AC Leak Freeze® PRO
AC Leak Freeze® Pro is the leak sealant formula and applicator combination that’s safe for the HVAC/R service tech and the refrigeration system.
Houston–RectorSeal® LLC, a manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products, has introduced AC Leak Freeze® Pro, a safe, quick and easy refrigerant leak sealant applicator for residential and commercial refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
AC Leak Freeze Pro is an 11.5-inch-long applicator that consists of a flexible, easy-to-handle, transparent refrigeration hose and an attached copper reservoir, which contain a total 1.46-ounces of the same trusted, non-polymer, ac leak sealant formula as the renowned syringe-based AC Leak Freeze injector. Unlike some other disposable leak sealant applicators, AC Leak Freeze Pro doesn’t require a system pump down with R-410A systems and safely withstands all typical refrigerant pressures.
The Pro applicator is designed for use with 1.5 to 6-ton systems and is available with both the blue AC Leak Freeze and green AC Leak Freeze with Magic Frost formulas, the latter which contains a compressor life-extending lubricant additive.
One side of the hose connects to the refrigeration system’s low side. The AC Leak Freeze formula is propelled into the system within seconds once the hose’s reservoir is connected to either the high side or a refrigerant cylinder via a charging manifold. The disposable, one-time-use, AC Leak Freeze Pro applicator’s nylon hose, brass fittings and copper reservoir are all 100-percent recyclable.
AC Leak Freeze Pro is the HVAC/R industry’s safest formula for service technician and the refrigeration system. It’s proven compatibility flows with refrigerant/oil to permanently seal small leaks and prevent them in the future. The patent-pending refrigerant leak sealant formula is not moisture activated, has a safer flashpoint rating than the competition, and doesn’t use polymers that can potentially clog compressors, recovery/evacuation units, Schrader valves, capillary tubes, TXV valves, micro channels or manifold gauges.
Other AC Leak Freeze Pro features are:
hose and reservoir are factory-sealed to prevent injecting air or atmospheric moisture into the system;
the nylon hose’s 45-degree connection fitting allows easier hand access than straight fittings in cramped Schrader valve environments;
transparent hose eliminates guess work as to when application is completed;
and boxed four-color packaging designed for distributor J-hook merchandisers.
RectorSeal is now positioned for the booming refrigeration and air conditioning system refrigerant leak repair market.
Houston–RectorSeal® Corp., a manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products, acquired the assets of Universal Technologies Inc., Baltimore, Md., and its AC Leak Freeze™ brands of refrigeration and air conditioning system leak repair sealants on Dec. 16.
Universal Technologies is a leader in the booming refrigerant leak repair industry for most sizes of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment under the AC Leak Freeze™ and AC Leak Freeze™ with Magic Frost brands. It also offers AC Leak Freeze™ R for smaller appliances. AC Leak Freeze is a non-polymer formula that seals environmentally-damaging refrigerant leaks internally and doesn’t react to moisture or oxygen. Once applied with its industry-unique injector system, AC Leak Freeze also remains in the system to seal future leaks as they occur, while also reducing component friction.
The acquisition supplements RectorSeal’s expansive product line and complements its refrigerant service product category that includes, Acid-Away®, Acid-Detector™ and Oil-ID™. “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–sales, RectorSeal, a portfolio company of publicly-traded CSW Industrials, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSWI), Dallas.
Traditional HVAC/R wholesalers and contractors will experience a seamless, unnoticeable changeover when RectorSeal transitions to marketing, sales and customer support of AC Leak Freeze™ and its website, www.leakfreeze.com.
The Universal Technologies transaction is RectorSeal’s fifth acquisition since 2011 when it acquired Airtec, Fall River, Mass. Other recent acquisitions include Resource Conservation Technologies, Glue-On-Nozzle, SureSeal®, and the Evo-Crete™ and PolySlab™ brands from Australian-based Evolve Group.
