FrioAire S.A. de C.V Hosts Product Seminars in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua


(PRWEB) February 23, 2015

HVACR technicians in Guatemala City, San Salvador and Managua attended Uniweld seminars that focused on brazing technologies and techniques to minimize refrigerant leaks, as well as updates on Uniweld’s latest product introductions, such as Uniweld’s patented EZ Turn™ hoses and NV1 NitroVue™ nitrogen flow indicator. Key talking points included the importance of properly selecting their equipment to properly install, service and maintain customer air conditioning and refrigeration units to allow HVACR technicians to achieve optimum performance and hassle free operation.

Uniweld’s Richard Apodaca stated, “In most Central American countries, HVACR technicians often select a cheaper option and in doing so, may circumvent some of the proper guidelines and installation procedures required by the equipment manufacturer, as well as risking the proper performance of the equipment with lesser quality product. As a manufacturer, I feel it is Uniweld’s responsibility to educate technicians on using the proper tools and procedures to ensure optimum safety and performance of the equipment.”

The technicians attending the event were appreciative of the information presented. Jairo Garcia of Refriteca, Guatemala stated, “Excellent seminar. This is the second time I attend a Uniweld seminar which is always excellent. I always learn new things.”

For HVACR technicians whom already know to displace the oxygen inside copper tubes with nitrogen while brazing, Uniweld’s NitroVue flow regulator was a welcomed accessory. Using a nitrogen flow regulator, which is specifically tailored for HVACR applications, takes the guess work out of knowing the proper flow rates required when purging and brazing HVACR systems.

The HVACR technicians present at the seminars, also had the opportunity to take the EZ Turn™ Challenge. 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.

Frio Aire S.A. de C.V., a Uniweld authorized distributor and host of the events, was very pleased with the attendance at the seminars and level of knowledge which was shared among all that were present.
