holdrite hyrdoflame pro

Holdrite Hydroflame Pro Series is a Contractor’s Dream

The evolution of lab-tested and UL Approved, cast-in-place firestop solutions continue with the introduction of the Holdrite HydroFlame Pro Series. The innovative Hyrdoflame Pro Series smoke and firestop system provide an effective water seal for unwanted water intrusion while protecting against the spread of fire, smoke, and other harmful gasses. In addition, water dams and water module accessories are available for added water-tight requirements. However, there are four specific innovations that make the Holdrite Hyrdoflame Pro stand out from the competition.


Holdrite Hyrdoflame Pro Series’s Interlocking Telescoping Design

The innovative, interlocking telescoping design of the Hydroflame Pro Series eliminates the need for contractors to cut sleeves on the job site. This means you’ll have faster install times and significantly reduce the number of different products required to complete a job.

Holdrite Hyrdoflame Pro Series Locator Whiskers

Although they may seem simple, the locator whiskers on the Hydroflame Pro Series make it very easy to locate buried sleeves after a concrete pour which helps save your most important resource – time. Sleeves are identifiable by the color of the whisker. A red whisker means plastic, a black whisker metal.

Holdrite Hyrdoflame Pro Series Saftey Cap

The Hydroflame Pro’s threaded cap allows for easy removal without damaging or destroying the unit. However, most contractors love the universal Safety Cap Tool which opens any Hyrdoflame cap and saves workers time and aggravation. And of course, all Hydroflame Pro Series caps meet OSHA hole cover requirements.

Holdrite Hyrdoflame Pro Series Interlocking Nail-In Base

Thie Hyrdoflame Pro’s nail-in base make for fast and easy installation and is ideal for alignment layout and installation in tight locations. The color-coded base allows installers to quickly identify whether they’re dealing with plastic pipe (red), or metal pipe (black).

Aquatherm Black System For Radiant Heating & Cooling

Hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems control the climate of a structure by circulating warm or cool water through tubing underneath or within a room’s floor. These systems work in two ways. To heat, the system radiates heat up from the floor to warm the room and objects touching the floor. To cool, the pipes of the system absorb heat from the room and distribute it back into the floor to provide cooling benefits. The Aquatherm Black System offers a radiant heat and cooling solution that is ideal for use in offices, hospitals, hotels, apartments, and other commercial applications. In addition to providing comfort as a quiet, efficient radiant cooling and heating solution, the Aquatherm Black System saves times, energy, money over traditional forced air systems.

Why Choose the Aqautherm Black System?

aquatherm black system

The Aquatherm Black systems utilize a series of wall or ceiling panels to heat or cool a space using radiant energy. With this technology, the temperature of a room is easily controllable. An automatic change-over between hot or cold water allows occupants to control a room’s temperature to create a suitable environment. Additionally, chambers in the systems allow for different temperatures in different zones of a building to keep all occupants at their desired temperature. For contractors, the Aquatherm Black System is easy to install. The complete system is 24.45 mm thick which allows it to fit below the plaster layer or behind drywall. In addition, the system’s pipe grids are made from rectangular manifolds which allow them to easily be linked for an easy connection. The Aquatherm Black System is available on a limited application, as-approved basis in the United States. For information about this product and potential applications of it, please contact info@nhyates.com.

Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop

Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop

Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop is Available from N.H. Yates

It doesn’t matter what region of the country you live in, your buildings and structures are susceptible to damage from seismic activity. In fact, FEMA has identified mechanical failures of gas and water lines as one of the main causes of fire and damage to property during a seismic event. Fortunately, the Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop was created to absorb and compensate for ground movement in six degrees of freedom (three rotation axis, plus rotation along those axes simultaneously). This multi-plane movement design can reduce the need for expansion devices required in piping systems up to 50%. In addition, the Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop is the safest and most reliable means of absorbing movement resulting from thermal changes and random seismic shits in a piping system.

Why Choose the Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop?

Flex-Hose Tri-Flex Loop

First, Flex-Hose simplified its piping design for an easier installation process. The Tri-Flex Loop does not impose thrust on the piping system. Rather, the pipe’s braid is designed to take the stress of pressurization containing the core, which reduces anchor loads up to 93%. The Tri-Flex Loop also eliminates the need for pipe guides required by traditional pipe designs. Second, the Tri-Flex Loop increases usable space and reduces systems cost. The Flex-Hose system uses 64% less space than mechanical loop systems and eliminates the need for six welds during installation. Additionally, fewer fitting and welds are necessary if the installer positions the Tri-Flex Loop at directional changes and rotates the elbows to make a connection. Third, the Flex-Hose is approved to use in a variety of applications including compressed and combustible gas, steam, hot water, condensed water, and domestic water systems. To accommodate the Tri-Flex Loop is available with flanged ends, steel made NPT ends, weld ends, grooved ends, copper female sweat, or press fit ends.

Maxitrol EXA Star Modulating Valves

EXA Star Modulating Valves

Maxitrol EXA Star Modulating Valves

Modulating control valves change the flow of fluids, pressure, level, and temperature control of a system. Most modulative values are made up of three main parts: a valve body, an actuator, and a positioner. The positioner, through the actuator, drives the valve based the setting of the control signal. The Maxitrol EXA Star Modulating Valves are equipt with a built-in digital controller that gives a seamless interface with a process controller. The valve has two buttons and a communication LED for the user interface which is used to set the valve for high and low fire settings. In addition, the valve has full open and full close mechanical limits. This feature adds dimension for sizing and applying is significant because it allows the valve to be set up for an entirely different net output depending on pressure supply. The EXA Star Modulating Valve has six electronic connections – two for the power, two for the control signal, and two for the position feedback.

Linear Maxitrol EXA Star Modulating Valves

EXA Star Modulating Valves

Maxitrol’s E42, E52, and E62 Series EXA Star Modulating Valves are designed to have a linear relationship between the control signal and flow rate. This flow rate linearization will optimize over a 5:1 turndown ratio with the maximum flow rate determined at 1″ w.c. pressure drop. With applications in areas with atmospheric low-pressure, these modulating valves consistent gain allows the controller’s entire signal range to be utilized and tuning is simplified. This is a significant improvement over traditional designs. Rather than using a ball, butterfly, and poppet valve, the EXA Star modulating valve has a built-in digital controller that provides a seamless interface with the process controller. This allows the installer to set the high fire and low fire settings and establish mechanical limits for the valve.

Taco LoadMatch System

Taco LoadMatch

Get the Taco LoadMatch System from N.H. Yates

The Taco LoadMatch is a hydronic system that is more energy efficient and produces less waste than traditional air-cooled HVAC systems. The LoadMatch is a more energy efficient system because it uses water, which has a higher specific gravity than air. This means the hydronic LoadMatch system only requires about half the energy of a comparable air-cooled system to move the same amount of BTUs around a building. The Taco LoadMatch System also uses a much simpler design than most air systems. Rather than a complicated system of pipe fittings, insulation, control valves, and balancing valves, Taco’s LoadMatch System utilizes a single pipe design to cool even very large, industrial buildings.

The Taco LoadMatch Concept

Taco LoadMatch

The LoadMatch hydronic system is a combination of two old concepts merged with a new technology. The two old concepts are single pipe distribution and primary-secondary pumping. A primary distribution system is a single loop, while the secondary distribution system is a decoupled secondary piping loop for each terminal unit in the system. The new technology comes in the form of Taco’s maintenance-free wet rotor circulators which provide a specified flow to each terminal unit in the system loop at all times.

Key Component of the LoadMatch System

The Taco LoadMatch  has several unique components that make up this efficient hydronic system:

Taco LoadMatch Circulators

Taco LoadMatch

The LoadMatch Series Circulators were designed for quiet and efficient operation. This unit’s patented design is easily serviceable without removing the entire unit from the piping system. In fact, all LoadMatch Circulators use a unique “00” replaceable cartridge which contains all of the moving parts so you can easily repair the unit without losing functionality.

Taco LoadMatch Thermostats


Taco LoadMatch Thermostats give users exceptional control of the heat pump of fan coil of your LoadMatch system. The all-in-one control can be preprogrammed to suit individual LoadMatch applications with little, or, no additional configuration necessary. In addition, there are LoadMatch Thermostats compatible with BACnet, Echelon-Lontalk while non-communicating versions can be used with virtually any system.

Taco LoadMatch Twin-Tee Fittings

Taco LoadMatch

Taco’s patented LoadMatch Twin-Tee fitting assures the comfort and performance of its single pipe hydronic system and primary secondary two-pipe hydronic system. The Twin-Tee was designed to replace the two primary circuit tees used to connect a secondary piping circuit to a primary piping circuit in a hydronic system. In addition, the Twin-Tee ensures that the secondary piping circuit is decoupled, so the flow of the secondary circuit, when the secondary pump is off and the primary pump is on, is zero. It also ensures the flow in other circuits is not affected by the operation of the secondary circuit pump.
