Washington, MO,July 20, 2015 – Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, was recognized for excellence in product designin the 12th annual Dealer Design Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News magazine. An independent panel of contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 107 entries. The company’s ZoomLock was the Gold Award Winner in the Components and Accessories category. The ACHR News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration industries.
News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, “These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions.”
“The ZoomLock’s patented RLS technology was developed with contractor productivity in mind,” said Scott, Junkin, product manager. “Brazing has been used in HVAC systems for more than a century and takes years to master. With modern-day safety regulations and municipal codes requiring hot work permits, fire spotters, deactivating fire suppression systems, etc., brazing has become much more cumbersome and labor intensive.”
With the ZoomLock fittings, time is saved, consistency is improved, and there are significant increases in safety, resulting in total installation cost reduction that will be instantly seen in the bottom line on every job, Junkin said. “ZoomLock fittings have gone through extensive third-party tests for quality, durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of installation. We are thrilled to be recognized for this game changing product.”
Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 20, 2015 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers, and other industry professionals. For more information and further coverage, visit www.achrnews.com.
