Aug. 13, 2013: Non-Kinking Refrigerant Line Connector Introduced

Makes Mini-Split Intallations Easier

HOUSTON — RectorSeal® Corp. has introduced RectorSeal NoKink™, a flexible, non-kinking refrigerant line connector designed for quicker, easier, and more reliable refrigerant lineset connections to wall and ceiling-mounted mini-split evaporators.

According to the company, RectorSeal NoKink eliminates inadvertent kinking, even with sharp 90-degree bends, that potentially lead to leaks on rigid linesets in the typically tight quarters of wall-mounted and ceiling-cassette mini-split evaporator installations. The product facilitates easier installations that save time and labor for installers.

RectorSeal NoKink is constructed of a braided stainless steel flexible body with 3-inch-long 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, or 5/8-inch copper stub connections on each end that can be flare-fitted or silver soldered to fit any lineset size combinations. It accommodates operating pressures of up to 800 psi.
