NAVAC Wins AHR Innovation Award for Industry’s Lightest Power Flaring Tool

NEF6LM BreakFree Power Flaring Tool takes top honors in Tools & Instruments category. 

NAVAC, the world’s largest supplier of HVAC vacuum pumps in addition to a wide array of tools, gauges, charging machines, recovery units and industry-specific items, has been recognized with a 2023 AHR Expo Innovation Award for its NEF6LM BreakFree® Power Flaring Tool.

The industry’s lightest cordless flaring tool, the product took top honors in the Tools & Instruments category.

The award was bestowed by AHR Expo’s co-sponsors, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute (AHRI).

Weighing less than three pounds, NAVAC’s NEF6LM BreakFree® Power Flaring Tool produces precise, automatic flares in a fraction of the time compared to traditional flaring methods. It can create flares in five sizes, ranging from ¼” to ¾”. Designed to perform reliably in harsh environments, the NEF6LM Power Flaring Tool also offers quick-connect functionality.

Featuring easy, one-button operation and a luminous LED flashlight, the NEF6LM Power Flaring Tool can complete a flare in just 15 seconds and can make over 100 flares per charge. The device can be fully charged in just 30 minutes.

Since its introduction, NAVAC’s BreakFree® Series of power tools have quickly become one of the company’s most popular product lines. NAVAC plans to introduce a brand new BreakFree® Series tool at AHR Expo this February, at Booth #C6364.

“We are honored and flattered to be recognized by one of the industry’s most respected organizations,” said Zhuk Zhang, Director of Product for NAVAC. “With both the Breakfree® Power Flaring Tool and the recently introduced BreakFree® Power Tubing Expander, we continue to empower contractors with automatic tubing processes that save time and energy while bolstering their bottom line.”
