FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The purpose of Uniweld’s Spanish release of “Brazing Tips: MTF-5 vs. Single Flame” (Soldando en la industria de HVAC & refrigeracion) is to grab the attention of the Spanish-speaking HVAC and refrigeration technicians. More than 50 million people (approximately 15 percent) of the U.S. population speak Spanish in the U.S. Additionally, Spanish is the national language in over 20 sovereign states, totaling around 423 million Spanish speaking people. Compare that to the U.S. population of 315 million people, and one quickly sees why Uniweld places importance on providing Spanish content.
The Spanish video provides HVAC and refrigeration techs with a visual comparison of the heat distribution coverage of a single-flame tip compared to Uniweld’s MTF-5 Cap’n Hook multi-flame tip. They must often work on compact systems, making it all the more difficult to achieve even heat distribution on the backside of the copper tube, when brazing with a single flame tip.
Costly refrigeration leaks (or ugas de refrigerante, as spoken in Spanish), may at times be attributed to the lack of proper heating during the brazing process. The inability to heat the tube properly on the backside deters the alloy from properly filling in the joint being brazed. Although it may appear visually that the joint is properly filled, when not properly heated, the slightest vibration can cause the filler joint to break loose, creating a leak.
The patented Uniweld Cap’n Hook tips offer concentrated heat (up to 5600 F). The 40 F flame angle flows onto copper tubing and away from sensitive areas, thus minimizing the chances of burning adjacent components. You get 100 percent wraparound for even heat distribution. Cap’n Hook tips are available in six models—three for oxygen/acetylene and three for oxygen/fuel gases such as propylene and propane.
Watch the video to see how Cap’n Hook tips can keep cash in the customer’s pocket by avoiding the costly replacement of refrigerant.
Cap’n Hook tips are another one of Uniweld’s product offerings which provide customers with, “Quality tools that go to work with you.”
