Fieldpiece’s Most Buzz-worthy Moments of 2021

The new year is here, and as much as we are looking ahead to all the exciting things the new year will bring, Fieldpiece is also taking a moment to reflect on the HVAC industry news we achieved together in 2021.  

The Product Line-Up 

We started 2021 with the launch of our latest generation of vacuum pumpsthe VPX7, VP87 and VP67. These workhorses feature four in-line ports and our patented RunQuick® Oil Change System to cut evacuation time and help techs knock out more jobs in one day. While all offer power and top-notch-quality, there are a few differences between the three.  

  • The VPX7 has a 10 CFM flow rate, is the lightest weight pump (24 lbs.) and has a ¾ HP DC motor. 
  • The VP87 offers an 8 CFM flow rate, weighs 27 lbs. and also has a ¾ HP DC motor. 
  • The VP67 has a 6 CFM flow rate, weighs 29 lbs., and has ½ HP AC motor. 

In the summer, the Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector, DR82, and the Heated Diode Refrigerant Leak Detector, DR58 hit the market, featuring a compact and durable design with a large backlit LCD screen—and setting the industry standard for durability, sensitivity and reliability. They detect leaks at less than 0.03 oz/yr (1g/a) and trigger on all HFC, CFC, HCFC, HFO and blended refrigerants. Plus, the LED lighted tip and loud beep help find leaks in noisy and dark environments seamlessly.  

And just when we had the industry thinking we didn’t have any more tricks up our sleeve, we introduced the newest member of our Fieldpiece family – the Wireless Vacuum Gauge, MG44. Rugged, accurate and with the ability to work as a standalone tool or wirelessly communicate with the Job Link® System app and the SMAN® Refrigerant Manifolds, the MG44 confidently monitors evacuations with a reliable, leak-proof seal.  

Graduating from Products to Education 

Fieldpiece didn’t stop at creating new HVACR tools.  

By launching Fieldpiece University, we contributed to the continuing education of industry professionals seeking to enhance their HVACR skills and knowledge. Whether a distributor, counter pro, sales rep, contractor or technician, Fieldpiece University was designed to offer online training modules, provide quizzes to test your knowledge and offer CE credits.  

 Fieldpiece also launched the #MasteroftheTrade Scholarship program to support those looking to kickstart their HVACR careers. As an industry leader with more than 30 years under our belt, the future of the trade is important to us. With nearly 80,000 jobs currently vacant, we are doing our part to help fill those positions with knowledgeable and proficient HVACR professionals. We announced the #MasteroftheTrade Scholarship in partnership with SkillsUSA in December 2021, offering ten $2,500 scholarships to support the technicians of tomorrow. Entries are open through March 1, 2022 and recipients will be announced in early May 2022, so be sure to share this with someone you think would be perfect for the industry!
