New Hush(TM) Heat Trap Fittings Provide Quiet Operation
Madison, OH - September 22, 2004 - Perfection Corporation introduces Hush(TM) Heat Trap Fittings featuring a newly designed ball which significantly reduces the possibility of "rattle" in water heaters. These new heat traps incorporate a thermoplastic ball with an elongated "tail". During the flow of water this tail is forced to the interior surface of the fitting, thereby reducing the possibility of noise or rattle. In noise tests, a decibel rating of approximately 55 dB remains virtually unchanged with water flow rates ranging from 1 GPM through 9 GPM.
Hush Heat Traps have been laboratory and field tested by the leading manufacturer of water heaters and found to perform as silently as ClearFlow® and PlastiSert® fittings, Perfection's other waterway products that plumbers and wholesalers have come to count on for quiet, dependable service.
Perfection heat traps are designed to help water heater manufacturers meet DOE efficiency requirements by substantially reducing heat loss, as well as providing safety relief ports which prevent accidental closure of the waterway. Hush heat traps feature steel-to-plastic construction that creates a non-corrosive waterway lining. In addition, the heat traps are self-cleaning, through an inert thermoplastic lining that prevents lime and scale buildup.
Perfection Corporation is the industry's leading supplier of water heater accessory products. The company also produces fabricated products for original equipment manufacturers in various markets, including appliance components, as well as specialty fabricated steel pipe and plastic tubing.
