Hydra-Zorb Co., a leading manufacturer of products for the HVAC, refrigeration, plumbing/mechanical, fluid power, and pneumatic industries, has received UL Certification 2043 for its Titan Insulated Pipe Riser.
The Titan Riser features a TPO plastic vapor-barrier sleeve molded to the support hardware. UL 2043 certification ensures that the integrated unit addresses the concern for contribution to the smoke density or flame propagation during a fire based on ULs published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety.
"Our Titan Riser is extremely popular for its unique features, but when we learned that engineers and builders working with schools, hospitals, and government facilities needed it to be UL certified, we moved quickly to meet that requirement," said Bill Krause, vice president and sales manager for Hydra-Zorb. "Our Titan is UL 2043 flame/smoke certified for use in plenums and air handling systems."
Riser clamps are two metal fasteners bolted together to support a vertical insulated pipe as it runs from floor to floor. These clamps leave the pipe exposed at the point of attachment, leading to condensation and mold. The Titan's integrated plastic sleeve provides a superior vapor barrier at the point of attachment, mitigating condensate and mold, while also keeping the pipe insulation ends safe from compressions and tears.
"The UL certification is just another great feature that distinguishes our product from others on the market," said Krause. "In addition to providing a superior vapor barrier, the Titan can be installed three-times faster, which is a welcome labor savings, and it's made right here in the USA, so it is always available."
