Quality tools that go to work with you.®
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) April 08, 2016
Uniweld Products, Inc. is pleased to announce that the popular Spirit Manifold is now packaged with a 5 or 6 foot Fast-Flo™ Hose Set. The hose set includes a red EZ Turn™ Hose, a blue EZ Turn™ Hose with an EZ Access “T” Fitting™ built into the middle of the hose for convenient micron gauge connection and simplified hose purging, a 3/8″ charging and vacuum hose with a full flow ball valve shutoff for more than 3 times faster evacuation of a system than a standard 1/4″ hose, plus a 3/8″ x 1/4″ refrigerant tank adaptor. Technicians can now have the best of both worlds in this exciting new bundle. The Spirit Manifold provides comfort and control while the EZ Turn™ fittings prevent refrigerant burns and make it easy to connect to the AC system while under pressure.
When connecting a standard hose nut to an access fitting, the valve core is depressed and the pressure from the system is released, spraying harmful refrigerant directly onto the technician’s hand and many times causing finger burns. This extreme pressure pushes back on the nut and causes a large amount of friction between the threads, making the nut very difficult to fully seat against the access fitting and provide unrestricted flow. Many times pliers are required to turn the nut and complete the seal. The EZ Turn™ Anti-Blowback fitting has a thrust bearing that reduces friction so the service hose can be easily connected to the access fitting while under pressure. This becomes extremely useful when working with a high pressure 410A system.
The Spirit Manifold is comprised of a lightweight, extruded aluminum body and easy-to-grip handles for positive control, a double O-ring piston valve for long reliable service, and easy access front hose holder. Additionally, the Spirit Manifold has large, easy-to-read 3-1/8” steel case NPF™ gauges with color-coded protective boots.
The Spirit Manifold will be paired with the 5 foot Fast-Flo™ Hose Set to create part number USFM5EZ (also available in 6 ft. USFM6EZ). Long service life and superior manufacturing are staples of all of Uniweld’s “Quality Tools That Go To Work With You.”
