RectorSeal® Corp., Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality HVAC/R products, introduces Paircoil™, pre-insulated, malleable linesets designed specifically to expedite installations of ductless mini-split and conventional air-conditioning systems in North America.
Paircoil is sold in 65-foot (20-meter) rolls of either 1/4 (6.35-mm) and 3/8-inch-diameter (9.52-mm); or 1/4 and 1/2-inch-diameter (12.7-mm) copper liquid/suction line sizes. Paircoil's durable industrial-grade insulation features a UV light and wear-resistant coating with a non-frictional surface making it easy to pull. It also features embossed incremental one-meter inscriptions for hands-free measuring. The competitively-priced Paircoil's white insulation efficiently reflects solar heat, is water-resistant, and features a hardened, but ductile surface. Unlike the industry standard of black, spongy and easily-torn foam insulation, it doesn't absorb moisture or prematurely disintegrate from UV light or freeze/thaw cycles.
Paircoil other features include:
- Ductility allows bending, shaping and forming without kinking;
- Thin 3/8-inch (9.52-mm) insulation thickness allows space with all lineset protection ducting such as Fortress™ and SlimDuct®.
- Accommodates operating pressures of up to 600-psi.
- Comes with straight, plain ends;
- Meets ASTM-International specification standards B280 seamless copper tube for air-conditioning and refrigeration field service; and C534 for preformed flexible, elastomeric cellular thermal insulation;
- Packaged in a fully-illustrated sturdy, protective cardboard carton that's easily multi-stacked without lineset damage;
- Easily decoupled without cutting tools for reaching separated terminal connections;
- Available through all major HVAC wholesale distributors;
