This video is a recap of all the cool interviews that Kaleb, Eric Kaiser, Leilani, and the rest of the HVAC School team did at AHR Expo 2022. Many of these were live-streamed on Facebook, so we’ve compiled them into a single video.

Bryan stopped by the DiversiTech booth to make pigs fly in a tool demo (hilmor line set cleaner) with Scott Mieras. The cleaner uses compressed nitrogen to launch the pig, and the kit comes with 5 different nozzles for all sorts of line set sizes, foam pigs of varying sizes, and a catch bag. The pigs don’t get stuck, even in some of the most kinked line sets. Learn more at https://www.hilmor.com/.

Eric Kaiser spoke with Nick Bailey of Mikrofill, which is a brand of UK-based Stuart-Turner that is starting to make its way into the American hydronic and chilled water system marketplace. Mikrofill is a pressurization unit that fills commercial hydronic systems with adequate backflow protection. The Mikrofill units are wall-mounted and use solenoid and check valves to administer water to commercial systems until the water reaches a certain pressure. It also offers alarm systems to alert customers of fill levels and potential threats to normal operation. Learn more at https://mikrofill.us/.

Leilani visited the NAVAC booth to speak with Kevan Mayer and check out the battery-operated swaging tool, which is quite similar to their famous battery-powered flaring tool. You can get these products soon from your local wholesaler or TruTech Tools. Learn more at https://navacglobal.com/.

DiversiTech’s SpeedClean product family had a new addition on display at AHR: a 360-degree bib kit that protects the entire mini-split, including the backside and the top to prevent ceiling and wall splatter. Learn more at https://www.speedclean.com/.

At the ADEY booth, we learned all about corrosion prevention on hydronic systems. ADEY’s cleaners remove magnetite and scale from boilers, which may reduce the likelihood of premature boiler failure. Some of ADEY’s technology also includes MagnaClean filters and MagnaCleanse flushers with magnets that can catch magnetite. At AHR, ADEY unveiled the CMX, which has dual-filtration capabilities for magnetic and non-magnetic contamination. Learn more at https://www.adey.com/us/.

Crowcon has recently entered the US market; it is a UK-based gas detection instrumentation company. We learned about their durable Sprint Pro combustion analyzer, which also serves as a manometer for pressure testing (up to 0.84″ wc) and a sniffer for flammable gases. These combustion analyzers also have many protections, are Bluetooth-compatible for data display and storage, and are made of extremely durable materials to make them last a long time. Learn more about the Sprint Pro at https://sprintprousa.com/. You can also visit the general site to learn more about the calibration system and portable gas detectors at https://www.crowcon.com/.

DiversiTech also held the Fastest Hands competition, which tested how quickly competitors could drill screws into a piece of wood with a DiversiTech nut driver. The competition was won by Yechiel of Prime Air in Spring Valley, NY.

Brent Lammert with HIKMICRO and Bill Spohn showcased some small and affordable thermal imaging cameras. These cameras could replace infrared thermometers (and do a better, more accurate job). The cameras allow you to see the real severity of a problem, such as an overheating wire, in high resolution and at a distance. Learn more about training for these cameras from TruTech Tools webinars at https://www.trutechtools.com/Thermal-…. Learn more about HIKMICRO at https://www.hikmicrotech.com/en/.

We also visited the Milwaukee Tool booth and learned more about the new jaw for the Milwaukee M12 press tool. You can use the tool combination to make tight fittings, though reaming the inside and outside of the pipe is recommended before making the fittings. We also looked at the M18 press tool, a compact threader, and a tripod chain vise. Milwaukee has also developed its mobile app to support tool data and theft deterrents for some added security. Learn more at https://www.milwaukeetool.com/.

We stopped by the Santa Fe booth and talked to Nikki Krueger, who has spoken at HVAC educators’ conferences and will be at the HVACR Training Symposium. The Santa Fe brand has expanded to include an umbrella of IAQ solutions like HEPA filtration and ventilation, not just dehumidification. Santa Fe also has an in-wall dehumidifier, which fits in the wall and is ideal for multi-family applications, storage facilities, and basements. Watch a case study with the MD33 dehumidifier on Corbett Lunsford’s Home Performance channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaiq7….
