Now that air conditioning repair season is upon us, many shop owners are facing the challenge of high labor costs associated with replacing leaking underhood metal lines. If you’re among those who are looking for ways to solve the AC line replacement problem – without the time and money that’s usually tied into it – line splice repair kits are the answer.
Gone are the days when an entire AC line needs to be replaced. Line splice repair kits allow shop technicians to remove only the damaged section and splice the line back together. What’s more, it can be done in ten minutes flat, which means saving time and money for your shop – and for your customers.
Not all line splice repair kits are created equal. WURTH’s new Line Splice™ range is available in SAE and metric sizes, and is engineered to maintain the approximate diameter of the aluminum tubing, so gas flow won’t be compromised.
This specially engineered system is also designed for specific fitting for AC (as opposed to a standard compression fitting), and the seal sleeve has nearly 8 times more sealing surface area than a regular O-Ring does. Equally important, the self-adjusting, anti-vibration tension ring resists vibration leaks for permanent leak-free repairs.
