Parker Hannifin Introduces ZoomLine, a Light and Flexible Refrigerant Line to Replace Copper

Written by admin on . Posted in Press Release

New York, NY, January 21, 2014 – Parker’s innovative refrigerant line assembly, a time saving, easy to install, and flexible line-set substitutes for copper tubing and directs refrigerant to system components in low and medium temperature refrigeration applications. This 6-layer flexible rubber tubing includes the patent pending Flexible Aluminum Barrier and is designed to withstand environmental, temperature and pressure extremes while providing excellent installation flexibility and long life. The flexible line eliminates coupling and elbow brazing operations and/or tube bending in long tubing runs as well as refrigerant leakage associated with brazing leaks.

The unique couplings that connect the ZoomLine assemblies to the system connections have multiple barriers and entire assemblies have been rigorously tested using the latest leak detection technologies to ensure no leakage.

Glen Steinkoenig, Sporlan Division Product Manager, commented, “Users find the vibration absorbing ZoomLine® easily pullable like wire because of it’s flexibility and it comes in extended length options.”

He added, “The simple connection and speed of install makes copper tubing obsolete by reducing installed costs, eliminating installation errors and rework resulting in a better bottom line for customers.”

Parker Hannifin Releases Added Models to the CO Series Filter-Drier with the Industry’s Highest Pressure Capability for use in Transcritical CO2 Refrigeration Systems

Written by admin on . Posted in Uncategorized

New York, NY, January 21, 2014 – Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has added more and larger models to the CO Series Copper Filter-Driers.

The CO Series product offering is designed to withstand the extreme pressure of transcritical carbon dioxide (R-744) systems while providing complete system protection in a compact design. A unique combination of moisture, acid, and solid debris removal extends the life, reliability, and capacity of these systems that operate under extreme conditions. It can handle the industry’s highest pressures capability with maximum rated pressure of 2,250 psig (UL file SA1756). A patent pending design uses an outer sleeve to provide the high pressure rating and reducing the weight of the product.

The added CO-080 models are ideal for refrigeration applications up to 10 tons and complement the CO-010 and -020 models that are ideal for vending machine and beverage dispensing equipment. Combining ideal capability in a compact size, the CO Series enables system optimization while maximizing protection and cost effectiveness.
