Stride Tool announces new Imperial® 800 series deep draw vacuum manifolds

Best for R-410A evacuations

GLENWILLOW, Ohio (November 30, 2009)—Stride Tool Inc., a worldwide designer and manufacturer of HVAC/R equipment and specialty hand tools, today unveiled a new four valve aluminum body manifold line: the 800 series for deep draw vacuum.

To keep an air conditioning system moisture and contaminant-free, today’s modern refrigerants, such as R-410A, require the technician to pull a low vacuum and hold it for longer periods of time when performing evacuations. The 800 series manifold, with its proprietary new diaphragm design, is guaranteed to bounce back and maintain its peak efficiency at extreme operating pressures

The four valves – vacuum, low side, high side and refrigerant, are individually connected and controlled for efficiency, with no need to switch charging lines. A 3/8” vacuum port evacuates four times faster than ordinary manifolds. Soft-seat valves require only fingertip pressure to completely close. Full open to close is one full turn. Precision gauges have easy to read color scales and provide superior resistance to shock, vibration, and pulsation. Models that include hose feature Imperial’s Polarshield™ Hi-Performance hose - UL® approved, 800 PSI working pressure, 4,000 PSI burst pressure. Packaging options include a retail clamshell or commercial boxed style.

Like all Imperial tools, Imperial manifolds are very “dependable under pressure” when covered by a lifetime warranty.

Stride Tool Inc. designs, manufactures and markets professional and DIY hand tools for a global customer base. Its brand Imperial® is sold through HVAC, retail, industrial and automotive aftermarket distribution. The privately held company operates all of its production out of a 120,000 square foot facility in northern Ohio.
