Climate Center's Braze-A-Gas package includes oxygen and acetylene cylinders, flame torches and accessories.

Gas boom for Climate Center

Published:  21 January, 2013

The launch of welding gases by Climate Center last year has been so successful that it will now be rolled out to all Pipe Center and Climate Center branches.

It has been a runaway success,” said product manager Craig Lees. “Contractors tell us they like the convenience of a one-stop shop, as they can source all equipment and installation accessories from a single supplier, saving time and money.”

Price transparency is also believed to be a major advantage, with costs quoted upfront without hidden extras. “It is an issue for installers, who can get hit with unexpected charges for cylinder rental and collection," Mr Lees commented.

"We give three months free rental with a single charge, and no hidden extras."

The Braze-A-Gas package includes oxygen and acetylene cylinders, flame torches and accessories to enable engineers to braze a full range of pipe work and system components. The company’s Welding Toolbox, which contains essential items such as gauge, hose and lightweight burner, has been, Mr Lees stated, “flying off the shelves".

Use of brazing has increased significantly in the refrigeration and air conditioning sector recently, due to the trend away from flare connections, in order to minimise refrigerant leakage.
