RectorSeal, part of the CSW Industrials Inc. group of companies, has added the Quick Connect push-fit, flame-free, refrigerant line brass fitting system to its PRO-Fit tools and accessories product line for the North America and Australia markets. Quick Connect is the new generation of refrigeration pipefitting designed for ductless mini-split and ducted unitary, single-family residential air conditioning systems. It’s one of the HVACR industry’s only major refrigerant fitting systems that doesn’t require flaring, brazing or expensive crimping connection tools.
After cutting, deburring and marking for proper depth, the refrigerant line installation requires just a few seconds to push into the fitting until the depth marking appears in the sight glass. Each Quick Connect fitting port consists of a patented factory-assembled tight-fitting double O-ring, protector, grip ring and an endcap — none of which needs to be addressed by the installer.
