When it’s time to pull out your blowtorch and weld some components together in an HVAC unit you’re servicing, what do you use to protect the area around the weld? A surprising number of folks surround the area with a wet rag, or they use nothing at all. Welding and brazing AC/R components without the proper heat absorption products can cause parts to warp, bend, discolor, or break. In this week’s blog, we will discuss a few reasons why you should bring air conditioner heat absorption putty with you on every call.
1. Air Conditioner Heat Absorption Putty Protects Nearby Materials
When welding or brazing part of an AC/R unit, the area around the weld will absorb some of the excess heat from your blowtorch. Without protection, these surrounding areas can melt, break, or catch fire. It is essential to protect nearby pipes, joints, equipment, and more from the high temperatures produced when welding. Air conditioner heat absorption putties protect these vulnerable materials by blocking heat conduction and absorbing heat.
2. Putty is Cheaper Than Replacement Parts
While it may seem like heat absorption putty is just one more tool you need to purchase and find room for, it can save you a lot of money in the long run. Accidentally deforming parts or melting old joints can cost a lot of time and money, and no amount of cash can take away a burn from touching a hot pipe. By taking precautions and using air conditioner heat absorption products, you can save yourself a massive headache. Cool Air Products has designed a reusable heat absorption putty: Stop Heat. Because the putty is reusable for life, Stop Heat is drastically cheaper than the replacement parts you’ll need if you don’t use a heat absorption product.
3. Stop Heat Makes it Easy
If you’re looking for a heat absorption putty to protect the areas surrounding a joint while you weld, Cool Air’s Stop Heat is an excellent choice. The putty is non-toxic and easy to mix, use, and store. To use the putty, just remove it from the container, mix, and apply near the site of your weld. Stop Heat’s non-slip formula means that your putty will stay put and block direct heat up to 3,000°F. Once you are done, simply remove the putty and place it back into the container for next time.
