Vibration Eliminators are designed to absorb and reduce compressor vibration which if not addressed has the potential of damaging system components & refrigeration pipework.
The Henry Vibration Eliminators are constructed of a deep pitch corrugated stainless steel hose covered with a stainless steel braid. The hose and braid are reinforced by stainless steel ferrules at each end and are connected to copper tube ends for the V series by a high temperature braze alloy.
Henry vibration eliminators can be installed in suction and discharge lines of refrigeration and air-conditioning systems and are also suitable for use with HCFC, HFC and CO² refrigerants along with their associated oils.
Manufactured to CE and UL classifications.
Installation – Main issues
Care must be taken if eliminators are installed horizontally in suction lines & operating temperatures are below freezing point.
Moisture may form on the outside of the eliminator when installed vertically & may accumulate in the lower braid collar. In subsequent freezing this may deform & destroy the eliminator.
If vertical installation is the only option, or if condensation is possible with horizontal mounting, the entire flexible section, ferrules & braided hose must be covered with a watertight synthetic material e.g. a heat shrinkable PVC sleeve.
Note: The ferrule & start of the braid must be wet-ragged for brazing when installing the V series to prevent overheating damage.
