Flaretite – Refrigeration & Gas Seals


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 is the industry’s only gasket-like seal designed specifically for making a tight, leak-resistant connection between 45-degree 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 45-degree 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.

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 SKU’s with four-color labeling:

    • Clamshell J-hook merchandiser of 10 units in all five sizes;
    • A 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;
    • A 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.

Multi Frame

Multi FrameHOUSTON–RectorSeal® LLC, a manufacturer and distributor of quality HVAC/R products, introduces the Multi Frame, a five-SKU packaged approach that simplifies designing, inventorying and assembling Big Foot® Systems’ modular, tubular steel framing mounts for VRF/VRV condensers in U.S. and Canada. The introduction also includes Frame Tech, Big Foot Systems’ new online program that eliminates the guesswork in rooftop equipment support configuration and engineering.

Multi Frame consolidates Big Foot’s previous standard product line from 80+ SKUs to five pre-packaged kits that are ordered through wholesale HVAC distributors. The standard rectangular Multi Frame kit consists of two 40-inch-long (102-cm) end bars, two 48-inch-long (122-cm) cross bars, four leg assemblies with 12-inch-square (30-cm) nylon feet, and two 2-clamp kits for securing the condenser to the frame. Each 40 x 48-inch frame has a 1,200-pound (544-kilograms) total weight capacity that accommodates any VRF/VRV brand and model.

The system accommodates one or two condensers, but is scalable to an infinite number of integrated frames and configurations with the Multi Frame extension kit and the other three supplementary SKUs. Any Multi Frame project can be widened, deepened or lengthened into any conceivable geometrical configuration with an extension kit, which consists of two end bars, two cross bars, two leg assemblies, two tubular steel connectors and one clamp kit.
While the previous Big Foot Systems product line gravitated toward highly-engineered jobs requiring consulting engineer specification, parts selection, Big Foot factory engineering and other tasks, Multi Frame’s five packaged SKUs reduce ordering/shipping time from weeks to just days.

The design-to-assembly process is expedited with Frame Tech, the online tool that leads HVAC wholesalers through user-friendly prompts to design and specify layouts for engineers and contractors. Frame Tech designs and prints out complete specifications including wind load ratings, SKU list for each condenser, configuration diagrams and assembly instructions. Frame Tech accommodates the largest rooftop configurations down to just a Fast Fix stand for a ground-mounted mini-split condenser. The print out is invaluable for consulting engineering verification, building inspectors and onsite assemblers.
The main Multi Frame system can accommodate pitched roofs by adjusting the frame up or down the threaded 12 to 18-inch (30 to 45-cm) legs. Tall legs of 18 to 24-inches (45 to 61-cm) are available for roof pitches or to surpass snow drift codes.

Besides the basic Multi Frame and the extension kit, the other three SKUs are: 1) Multi Frame tall with 18 to 24-inch legs; 2) Multi Frame tall with 18 to 24-inch legs extension kit; and 3) an extra 48-inch cross bar kit (auto-populated during Frame Tech designs) for VRF/VRV brands that require six total mounting rail touchpoints of condenser support.

Other Multi Frame advantages are:
• Price is less than the cost of fabricating labor for an I-beam or lumber mount;
• Also applicable for ground mounting;
• Can be mixed and matched with VRF/VRV and ductless mini-splits, as long as the latter is accommodated with enough venting space;
• Can also be used for other HVAC rooftop equipment.
Big Foot Systems is the only corrosion-resistant, hot-dipped galvanized steel equipment mounting frame that outlasts other steel frame brands and reduces labor versus general construction material gerri rigging. Re-roofing is possible without disassembling HVAC equipment, because roof sections can be replaced under one removed leg at a time.

Rooftop Pipe Support

The Rooftop Pipe Support (RPS ) is a light weight, versatile, non-penetrating support recommended for all light weight applications such as pipes, conduits, ducting, and solar installations on flat commercial roofs.

Manufactured using high quality UV resistant polymers designed to withstand temperatures up to 200 F and loads of 250 lbs. with strut and 200 lbs. without. The light weight and non-penetrating RPS is ideal for rooftop gas piping, plumbing, mechanical systems, conduits, refrigerant and condensate lines, as well as a support for cable trays, solar panels, and walkways.

Features

Screw guides, a galvanized perforated strap to quickly clamp up to a 2” pipe, interlocking tabs to align multiple supports, and numbered pipe grooves.
An innovative notch coupled with ½” bolt holes and 5/8” – ¾” nut retainers for the easy installation of universal strut and risers.
A removable insulated base that protects the roof surface and prevents vibration.
