ZoomLock flame- free refrigerant pipe connectors are the faster, easier, and safer way to join copper tubing in HVAC&R applications for pressures up to 700 psi. The new tools are expected to be popular in large facilities including supermarkets, hospitals, and data centers, where open flames can be a problem. With the variable refrigerant flow (VRF) market expected to grow to US$ 9.65 billion by 2021, ZoomLock products are positioned to be an extremely popular facility solution.
Using specially designed Zoom-Lock crimping tools, technicians simply connect the deburred tube ends into the fitting which has orings inside and press the assembly into place for a secure, leak-free seal. It requires no brazing or adhesives, just the crimping tool and the fitting.
