In the past, we have heard from customers in the brewing industry, who enjoyed the benefits of the Klo-Shure insulation coupling. Considering many breweries organize guided tours of the brewing process, installations in this industry require insulated tube and pipe runs to be installed conveniently and neatly, so as to look presentable to the customer and the customer’s customers.
Recently, we heard from another customer, Jeff Guignard, who just renovated a public high school in Nashville, Tennessee, replacing the existing hydronic systems and water source heat pumps with Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) equipment. Jeff purchased and installed the Hydra-Zorb TRH Hanger system, a product designed to support a pair of insulated flow and return refrigerant lines on 1/4” to 3/8” threaded rod:
Here is what Jeff had to say about the TRH Hanger System:
We decided to use the TRH hanger system after we had seen it at a trade show, and after it had been recommended to us by one of our contacts in England. We were looking for a faster and more flexible hanger system to use for the refrigerant line sets we install.
In our previous installation method, we used either strut channel with pipe clamps or threaded rod and loop hangers. The problem with the threaded rod and loop band hangers was that they did not hold the linesets securely like the Hydra Zorb TRH hangers do. Furthermore, installing these band hangers at the correct height is a time-consuming, and labor intensive process, requiring the installer to tediously adjust each hanger by threading it to the correct height. Our other option was to use strut channel and pipe clamps, but this method required us to hang two lengths of all-thread for each hanger, demanding a much longer installation time. Using the TRH hangers has saved us significant time and labor costs.
With that being said, I also want to point out that the quality of both your product and customer service has been exceptional.
