Lokring Technology for More Pipe

How Lokring Technology Works

The two metal round pipes are inserted into the outer jacket, and the gap between the two pipes is filled with a special sealing liquid for lokring refrigeration.

The lokring refrigeration tool pushes the lokring forward, forcing the connecting part of the pipeline to produce elastic deformation and tightly fit.

The sealing liquid fills and seals the fine gaps and scratches between the inner and outer pipes, and the centripetal force generated by the lokring and locks the connection parts, to achieve a complete sealing and tight connection.

How Lokring Technology Works

Lokring Refrigeration Process

The lokring refrigeration processing technology is the same as that of Vulkan, which is formed by lathe processing.

Advantage 1: Lathe processing does not need to choose soft materials and bars with higher mechanical properties can be used.

Compared with peer pressure forming, lathe processing and forming do not have to consider the influence of stress rebound, deformation, and other factors on the structure size after forming;

Advantage 2: The raw material selected by lokring refrigeration has higher mechanical properties. The outward deformation of Lokring caused by the supporting force of the connecting pipe after crimping is negligible, ensuring that the pipe size after crimping is closer to the theoretical deformation.

Advantage 3: lokring refrigeration processing is non-mold forming, and the most suitable specification and size can be designed according to the connecting pipe provided by you, and the sample delivery time is guaranteed and the verification cycle is shortened.

When your connecting pipe specification changes, the Lokring inner hole size can also be quickly changed according to the latest pipe diameter size.

Lokring Technology Cost VS Welding Cost

Quality Cost

Welding Cost

1. Flame welding leakage rate: 400ppm.

2. In the traditional flame welding method, an oxide layer will be formed on the outer surface of the pipe.

The corrosive gas in the air will accelerate the perforation of the outer surface and cause leakage. The inner surface of the pipe may fall off the oxide scale and cause the pipeline to block.

3. Welding quality is greatly affected by the welder’s operating level and physical condition, and the product quality stability cannot be guaranteed.

Lokring Technology Cost

1. Lokring technology connection leakage rate: 80ppm.

2. Solder-free connection, no oxidation layer on the pipe surface, to ensure the service life of the system pipeline, and the lokring refrigeration is the same as the pipeline life, completely eradicating the micro-leakage, gradual leakage, and other defects that occur after you use it.

3. Lokring technology mainly relies on equipment crimping to realize pipeline connection, which greatly reduces the influence of human factors on pipeline sealing.

Process Cost

Welding Cost

1. The traditional welding process requires resistance welding of a section of copper pipe at the end of the aluminum pipe, which increases the number of solder joints and high leakage risks.

2. Welding between pipes of different materials requires different welding methods (resistance welding, high-silver welding, high-frequency welding), which is complex and affects production efficiency.

3. The tensile strength and fatigue strength of resistance welding joints are low. At the same time, there is no simple and practical non-destructive testing method for testing indicators such as penetration rate and defective fusion rate, so it cannot be promoted to high-quality occasions.

Lokring Technology Cost

1. A lokring connection point can eliminate a resistance welding point and a section of the copper pipe and a refrigerator can reduce at least two welding points, which reduces the leakage rate of the product in disguise.

2. Lokring technology is easy to operate, the connection points are beautiful, no painting and anti-rust processes after welding are required, which simplifies the working procedure and ensures the efficiency of the assembly line.

3. It has a huge advantage in the connection between metal pipes of different materials (copper-aluminum, steel-aluminum), ensuring the effective implementation of cost-reducing projects such as replacing copper pipes with aluminum pipes.

Lokring Technology Cost VS Welding Cost

Equipment Cost

Welding Cost

1. Welding requires a lot of equipment investment, resistance welding machine, welding torch, oxygen pipe, and also need to lay energy pipelines and build ventilation pipes.

2. The cost of equipment maintenance and pipeline maintenance is high every year, and it is easy to cause a long-term shutdown when equipment fails.

Lokring Technology Cost

1. desktop crimping equipment can realize the expansion pre-installation of the connecting pipe, which can guarantee the supply of at least two production lines.

A two-channel pump station equipment can ensure the crimping operation of two adjacent stations.

2. The equipment failure rate is low, and the key crimping components are easy to replace and maintain.

The hydraulic handle can be kept in place to ensure the orderly operation of the assembly line.

Labor Costs

Welding Cost

1. Proficient welding technology is difficult to develop in a short time, it takes more time and cost to train employees.

In China, we normally train a welding worker for 3 years on average, and costs at least 30,000RMB, not to mention that the welding worker is easy to lose.

2. Skilled welders have higher wages and even skilled welders take longer to complete a solder joint than lokring crimping, and the faster the welding action, the more difficult it is to guarantee the quality.

Lokring Technology Cost

1. Only need simple training for operators to operate equipment crimping, let’s say,1-3 days, you can have a good skillful worker.

2. Equipment crimping avoids human quality factors and has high-quality stability. The crimping speed can be guaranteed after the skilled operation to ensure production efficiency.

Safety Cost

Welding Cost

1. Under the action of high temperatures and strong ultraviolet rays generated by welding, a large number of toxic gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides will be produced, which directly endanger the health of welding workers.

2. Most of the refrigerants mixed with air will form an explosive mixture, and there is a risk of combustion and explosion in case of fire.

It is difficult to ensure the safety of welders during the process of filling and sealing, rework, and welding.

Lokring Technology Cost

1. There is no need for fire, no harmful gas and smoke are produced, and the health of employees is protected.

2. Fire-free welding, effectively avoiding the explosive and flammable characteristics of refrigerants such as R290, ensuring personnel safety, and improving the working environment.

How to Make Money with Lokring Technology

For Dealers

Most people think that a good quality air conditioner is the main factor to ensure a good refrigeration effect, that’s right, But the installation of an air conditioner is also important.

There is a saying in the field of household and commercial central air conditioner installation called “three points of equipment, seven points of installation “It can be seen that the quality of the later installation of air-conditioning directly determines the quality of the entire refrigeration system.

At present, an obvious feature of the domestic air-conditioning installation market is that air-conditioning distributors are only responsible for the sales of air-conditioning. The air-conditioning sales process only accounts for 30% of the entire air-conditioning process. What about the remaining 70%?

Of course, the remaining 70% is after-sales. After you sell the air conditioner, you may find an air conditioner installation team on the market to help you complete the air conditioner installation.

But how do you control the quality of after-sales installation of air conditioners? Maybe you have also thought about setting up your own after-sales team, but because of funds and other reasons, you can’t have your own after-sales team, OK, lokring technology is your opportunity.

How to find the right people to form your team?

You must have your ideas. According to Miracle’s experience, you are looking for people who have experience in air-conditioning installation but have not obtained a welding technology license, or young people who have not done air-conditioning installation but want to engage in the air-conditioning installation business.

Why look for young people who have not been engaged in air conditioning installation?

Why look for inexperienced young people

Miracle considers the following points:

1. The lokring technology is simple to use, easy to learn, and has a low failure rate. Young people have more motivation and better learning ability to start their businesses.

2. Those who have work experience in the field of air-conditioning installation and have a senior technician certificate can get high remuneration in the field of welding.

When lokring technology enters the market, it will replace part of the senior welding technicians, and at the same time reduce the salary level of the senior welding technicians.

Therefore, when they are allowed to engage in the solder-free connection business, they will resist and think that the solder-free connection technology may instead of their jobs, it is opposite to the solder-free connection technology, but for the company or enterprise founder, the solder-free connection technology will be a good way to reduce costs.

How to retain team members?

According to the actual situation of your market, you should have your answer. If you are a central air-conditioning distributor, you can try to replace welding with a non-fire connection, and you can test the installation efficiency of welding and lokring technology.

I believe the comparison between the installation efficiency of the no-welding connection and the installation efficiency of welding will be very obvious.

First, the solder-free connection can protect your installers from dangerous gases.

Second, it can improve the efficiency of after-sales service, save your time, and save your customers’ time.

Third, you can train your own after-sales team to take the initiative to accept other air-conditioning installation projects when your business is not busy, so as to further increase your income and increase the income of the after-sales team.

If you are interested or have other questions, you can contact us directly. We believe that our large number of cases can well promote your business success.
