Braze-free connectors fron Parker Hannifin Corp.
March 31, 2015
Parker Hannifin’s Sporlan ZoomLock braze-free pipe connectors are a faster, easier and safer way to join copper HVAC/R tubes. The fittings work with exclusive crimping technology, so there’s no brazing needed. Using specially designed crimping tools, connect the deburred tube ends into the fitting (which has O-rings inside) and press the assembly into place for a secure, leak-free seal. The connectors are currently available as a traditional straight coupling and a 90° elbow, with a tee connector coming soon. The fittings can accommodate copper tubes from 1/4” to 1 1/8” with maximum operating pressure of 700 psi.
