Marketair Disconnect Standby Switch for AC/Heat Pump CondensersMarketair Inc., an Edison, N.J.-based supplier of specialized and innovative installation components for the North American HVAC market, introduces the Disconnect Standby Switch (DSS), the industry’s only electrical disconnect box with a ready-access standby portable generator port/switch for powering residential or light commercial air conditioner/heat pump condensers during power outages.

As North American power unreliability increases due to an aging electric grid and intensified weather-related events, the DSS–combined with a portable generator– ensures quick, reliable indoor air comfort within minutes for homeowners and tenants during power outages.

The DSS differs from common condenser electrical disconnect boxes, because it features a three-position toggle that switches from–“PWR” (house power), “OFF” (disconnect mode), and “GEN” (generator position). It’s wired the same as a conventional disconnect box, but uses a plug-and-play whip. If a power outage or brownout occurs, condenser power can resume within seconds by connecting a working generator’s extension cord to the DSS’s grounded three-wire male 120V receptacle (four-wire on 240V models) and activating the standby switch. No rewiring is required.

Assembled in the USA with UL-listed components, the DSS was developed specifically for air conditioners/heat pumps. It’s constructed of a 6 x 6 x 6-inch (152 x 152 x 152-mm) aluminum, corrosion-resistant, NEMA-rated weatherproof box (when in use). The transparent plastic, code-compliant locking cover allows sightlines to the interior power status LED red (generator) and green (house power) lights. It’s available in three voltage/amperages: 1) DSS15–15 amp/120V; 2) DSS25–25 amp/240V; and DSS30–30 amp/240V.

Other DSS features include:

  • Available with an optional 75KA surge protector;
  • All aluminum, stainless steel and plastic construction for coastal salt environments;
  • Packaged in a white, bar-coded 8 x 8 x 8-inch (203 x 203 x 203-mm) cardboard box with illustrations (5-lbs gross—(2.2-k));
  • Becomes a life/safety guarantee for heat pump systems during winter outages;
  • Designed for both ductless and smaller unitary systems;
  • One-year limited warranty/lifetime limited warranty on surge protector;
  • When combined with a portable generator, the DSS offers indoor air comfort while saving tens of thousands of dollars on a whole house generator purchase;
  • Double pole/double throw switch prevents back-feed during power outages;
  • Ideal for zero lot line situations or when local property codes don’t permit permanently-installed generators.

The DSS is available at many participating North American HVAC/R wholesale distributors or direct from Marketair. For more information on other innovative Marketair HVAC/R products, please visit www.marketair.com.

Aquatherm Molded FittingsAquatherm, a leader in high-performance polypropylene piping systems, announced the addition of molded fittings in 45s, 90s, and tees for its SDR 9, 11, and 17.6 product lines. The molded fittings are available in nominal sizes up to 10-in.

There are two types of molded fittings:

  • Short radius (SR) molded fittings are injection-molded in the Aquatherm factory and come off the production line as a single piece of polypropylene. They are less expensive than segmented fittings, with a thicker wall and no change to inner diameter, offering increased strength. Short radius fittings can be integrated into tight spaces, leaving more room for equipment and other utilities. The molded 90s will have a higher pressure drop compared to segmented 90s.
  • Segmented standard dimension (SD) fittings are segments of Aquatherm pipe fused together by certified Aquatherm employees to create the 45, 90 or tee. The segmented 90s feature a larger bend radius and somewhat less pressure drop compared to the molded 90s.

Detailed information including dimensional data is available in the Aquatherm QCE Tool and the online version of the Aquatherm Design & Planning Guide. Both SR and SD molded fittings are guaranteed to be leak-free and are covered by Aquatherm’s comprehensive 10-year multimillion-dollar warranty.
