FIELDPIECE INSTRUMENTS WINS SILVER AND BRONZE AT THE 18TH ANNUAL ACHR NEWS 2022 DEALER DESIGN AWARDS
Leading HVACR Product Manufacturer Recognized in Two Categories for Design Excellence
ORANGE, Calif. (July 19, 2022) – Fieldpiece Instruments, a proven industry leader known for delivering innovative and high-quality HVACR test tools for more than 30 years, received accolades for two of its newest products at the 2022 Dealer Design Awards. Fieldpiece took home the silver in the hand tools category for its 10 CFM Vacuum Pump, VPX7, and bronze in the electronic tools category for its Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector, DR82.
Now in its 18th year, the Dealer Design Awards is hosted by ACHR News and was created to recognize contractor-oriented products and tools with features that support the installation, maintenance, and overall service needs of the HVACR industry. An independent panel of contractors judged more than 132 entries to determine this year’s winners.
“Receiving not just one but two awards at this year’s Dealer Design competition validates the hard work the Fieldpiece team does day-in and day-out to innovate, engineer, design, and build tools for HVACR professionals by HVACR professionals to help them succeed on the jobsite,” said Fieldpiece Instruments’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeb Ball. “We are honored to take home these wins; and look forward to continuing to design products that make the important work HVACR pros do easier, faster, and better.”
Earning silver in the hand tools category, the Fieldpiece 10 CFM Vacuum Pump, VPX7 is small, lightweight, and portable – making it easy to carry up and down ladders, and its powerful 10 CFM DC motor is tough enough for even large commercial or refrigeration applications. Plus, it features Fieldpiece’s patented RunQuick® Oil Change System which lets technicians change oil without powering down or losing vacuum, and it has four in-line ports, offering techs plenty of room to run multiple hoses without tangles or clutter.
Fieldpiece’s Infrared Leak Detector, DR82—honored with a bronze award in the electronic tools category—gives technicians superior sensitivity in the field – <0.03-ounces per year, and the most consistent leak detection across all refrigerants. Its sensor is designed to last about ten years; it has the added protection of a replaceable water-blocking filter that keeps moisture and contaminants from reaching the sensor, preventing contaminant-related failure; and its rechargeable 10-hour lithium-ion battery powers the unit for a full day of testing. A large LCD display shows a numerical value representing leak size and a bar graph indicating the intensity of the leak; the backlit display can be seen in dark places or in direct sun, and three sensitivity levels adjust at the push of a button to find leaks even in refrigerant contaminated environments.
