TurboTorch® Introduces Nitrogen Flow Meter for HVAC and Plumbing Professionals

St. Louis, MO - TurboTorch® has introduced a new Nitrogen Flow Meter that is the perfect choice for purging HVAC or refrigerator lines prior to the brazing process.

The meter monitors the flow of nitrogen gas through the lines so that oxygen can be displaced, thereby preventing oxidation and the resulting scale that would otherwise be picked up by the refrigerant and cause contamination.

The TurboTorch Nitrogen Flow Meter (Model#: NFM-TT: P/N:0386-0849) can measure the outflow of gas in two ways: By Standard Cubic Feet per Hour (outflow 0 to 75 SCFH) or by Liters per Minute (0 to 35 LPM).

The Meter has a durable brass body construction, a ¼" M.F. outlet and a ¼" F.F. inlet. In addition to an easy-to-operate control valve, it features an over-pressure safety release valve.

"This tool helps observe and conserve nitrogen flow, and more efficiently and effectively prepare HVAC and refrigerator lines," said Paul Minter, General Manager of TurboTorch. "This is another TurboTorch product that offers precise fuel control and flexibility that will help professionals to safely and optimally perform their jobs."

The Flow Meter is ideal for use with the TurboTorch Nitrogen Purge Kit. The Purge Kit comes with a nitrogen regulator, two charging hoses, a blow gun, two cone plugs, a Turbo Tornado rubber tip to flush drainage lines clean, a needle tip for cleaning, and a CO2 adapter.
