Parker Extends ZoomLock Product Line with ZoomLock MAX

The Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announced the launch of ZoomLock MAX, Press-To-Connect Refrigerant Fittings, an improved version of the original ZoomLock. Parker was the first to launch a flame-free refrigerant fitting and continues to provide advanced products for the HVACR contractor.

“Parker ZoomLock was the first globally marketed flame-free refrigerant fitting in the industry, and we are proud to announce this next generation press fitting to build on our history of innovation,” said Dustin Searcy, marketing manager, Sporlan Division. “Contractors set themselves apart with labor and time-saving solutions from Parker Sporlan.”

ZoomLock MAX, designed for the air conditioning and refrigeration markets, allows contractors to make secure leak-free connections in seconds. It means less time on the job and more money in the contractor’s pocket.

Press-to-connect fittings were developed over 20 years ago for the plumbing industry, and they quickly adopted this technology due to the significant time savings, repeatability, and simplicity of installation. ZoomLock MAX provides a clean, leak-proof connection for refrigerant lines using the same technique. By eliminating concerns about oxygen-acetylene torches and flames, ZoomLock MAX gives you more flexibility in where and when you can work, plus there’s no need to nitrogen-purge the lines.

ZoomLock MAX comes in hermetically sealed packaging; the hard, robust copper fittings are debris-free and ready for installation, assuring the contractor of a clean system. And, no more crimp gauge needed—with one complete cycle, you connect the fitting. ZoomLock MAX also works with the tool you already use. Jaws are available for most professional crimping tool brands, both large and compact. Couplings, elbows, tees, flares, and more are available in the following sizes 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”, 7/8”, 1”, and 1-1/8.” The engineering team extensively tests the ZoomLock MAX fittings for the quality assurance contractors expect from Parker Sporlan.
