  • propress for refrigerant piping

    we tried out our new propress this week; repaired a 2" water main and installed a tankless water heater. That is one hell of a fabrication system!

    Ridgid product development: you absolutely must develop propress for refrigerant piping. If you do, you will revolutionize the industry!

      spodelee--now do u see why the propress is the best tool for plumbers to date?????? repairing 3 or 4 inch mains with water leaking by a gate is no problem---its my favorite tool

      josh---so, can we expect this???? i just found out propress can be used up to 15 psi steam for our very few steamers around--thats nice

        the pressure in refrigerant piping would be the problem

        but is a good idea

          i can only preach to the gospel so much.

          if you love the k-60, you'll marry the propress

          4 years of preaching and some are just seeing the light.

          all of my supply houses now stock propress fittings.

          i'm one of only a few contractors that purchase propress.

          so the rest of the guys are missing out.

          actually i've gotten a couple propress job referrals from guys that don't have the machine

            The 2" main repair was a failed tee - a worst case, pain in the butt scenario on a large commercial building that took three hours to complete. The drain down in preparation for a sweat repair would have taken three hours by itself! Yep, my favorite tool too (I might even like it more than a k60 but don't tell rick)

              Aghhh, just add another o-ring or somethin' / LOL

              Actually, we should probably be harpin' on vega. In any case, stop the presses Josh, stop working on that silly seesnake prototype (grin), and make your mark in the HVAC industry

              Heck, the idea of cutting refrigerant pipe fab time by two thirds is so exciting, it's got me writing this on vacation on my iPhone!

                Re: propress for refrigerant piping

                if u can use it for steam, im sure it could handle the abuse of refrigeration--im sure there is a prototype somewhere--if there is , my hvac installers would love to watch me press it in and save them from dragging in all the soldering/brazing tools , and save them a lot of time

                im sure it will happen soon and am sure there are a few a/c units that are ppressed together out there somewhere -----

                josh--this sounds like a heck of an idea for ridgid--if we talk about it enough, will they do it???? better yet--tell the engineers that sharkbite is going to release refr fitts very soon and ridgid needs to 1 up them!!!!!!!!!!!

                    I believe what you are missing is Rick's K-7500s and K-750s (including a new in box unit) now sit in the shop unless needed and the K-60 rides shotgun.

                        Not only the pressure but the vibration and pulling a vacuum. I would never trust it.

                          close,

                          my brand new in box 7500 sits next to my 7500, which sits next to my brand new in box 750, that sits next to 2- 750's that sit next to my spartan 300 that sits next to 2 generals, that sit next to 3 non seesnakes.

                          sould i continue or do you get the point?

                          i have yet to find a job i couldn't do with my k-60 or 1500.

                          yet i have plenty of jobs that my 750, or 7500 couldn't do.
