Depatie’s Supplier, Parker Hannifin, Wins 2016 AHR Expo Innovation Award

At this year’s AHR Expo Innovation Awards, the Sporlan Division of Parker Hannifin was named the winner in the Cooling Category for its development of ZoomLine, a new refrigeration tubing that replaces copper lines in air conditioning and refrigeration applications.

Easy to install, one of the major benefits of ZoomLine tubing is that it can be bent and reshaped repeatedly without compromising its integrity. With a flexible aluminum barrier, the tubing is vibration resistant and engineered to stand up to harsh temperature, pressure and environmental conditions with minimal risk of failure. Furthermore, with the simplicity of ZoomLine’s installation, it stands to fully replace copper lines due to its ability to cut costs, labor and install times.

Glen Steinkoenig, the division’s product manager, said, “ZoomLine, like copper, is used in commercial and residential applications. However, it fits best with commercial applications saving time and money while enabling the contracting company to make more installs or service calls. OEMs can also benefit by using a single ZoomLine assembly to eliminate many unique bent tubing assemblies.”
