In the HVAC industry, ensuring the longevity and efficiency of Refrigeration systems is crucial. Proper installation and maintenance practices can significantly impact the performance and durability of HVAC systems.

One effective approach involves using high-quality components like Our HDPE sleeve and the Uniclamp V-BAT pipe clamp.

Let’s explore the benefits of using Our HDPE Sleeve and Uniclamp V-BAT Pipe Clamp in tandem, highlighting how they enhance the HVAC system’s reliability and efficiency.


Our HDPE Sleeves

Uniclamp HDPE Sleeve


High-Density Polyethylene(HDPE), is a versatile and durable material commonly used in various industrial installations. Our HDPE sleeves are specifically designed to protect and support pipes in HVAC systems. Our HDPE Sleeves offer several key advantages:

Durability and Protection

Weather Resistance: Our HDPE sleeves are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including UV radiation and extreme weather. This resistance ensures that the installation remains protected and intact over time.

Temperature Tolerance: HDPE sleeves can operate in temperatures between 130 °F (-90°C) and 176°F (80°C), making them suitable for a wide range of HVAC applications. The ability of the HDPE Sleeve to function in extremely low temperatures ensures the reliability of the HVAC systems in extreme conditions.

Corrosion Resistance: HDPE sleeves are impervious to moisture and environmental contaminants, effectively preventing corrosion of the pipes. This characteristic is crucial in HVAC systems, where moisture can be a persistent issue.

Installation Efficiency

Quick Installation: The flexible design of HDPE sleeves allows for rapid and easy installation. Simply wrap the sleeve around the pipe and secure it with the V-BAT Pipe Clamp and Stainless Steel Zip tie or Hose Clamp.

No Insulation Damage: One of the key advantages is that the sleeve prevents the insulation from being cut or compressed during installation. This helps maintain the integrity of the insulation, preventing ice buildup and condensation, which can lead to corrosion and pipe failure.


Size Options: HDPE Sleeve comes in 2x16" and 4x16", accommodating up to 5" Armorflex diameter pipes. This versatility ensures it can be used in various HVAC installations.

Application Flexibility: It is suitable for use with different types of insulation and can be paired with Uniclamp Strut Pipe Clamp or V-BAT Pipe Clamp for enhanced performance.


The Role of Uniclamp V-BAT Pipe Clamps

The Uniclamp V-BAT pipe clamp is a revolutionary product designed to provide robust and reliable pipe support in HVAC, plumbing, and electrical installations. Its unique features include: 

Universal Fit

Versatile Application: The V-BAT clamp can accommodate pipe sizes ranging from 3/8" to 5", making it a one-size-fits-all solution. This flexibility reduces the need to keep multiple sizes of clamps in stock, simplifying inventory management and reducing costs.

Triad-Purpose Design: It can be used as a flat surface clamp, multi-sized hanger clamp, and pipe spacer, offering flexibility in various industrial sectors. 

Strength and Durability

High Tensile Strength: With a tensile strength of 1100 lbs, the V-BAT clamp provides a secure hold. This strength ensures that pipes remain in place, even under heavy loads or high-vibration environments.

Robust Material: Made from 30% glass-reinforced nylon, the clamp is rust-proof, waterproof, and resistant to acids and most chemicals, ensuring durability in any environment.

Ease of Installation

Quick and Secure: Designed for rapid installation, The Uniclamp V-BAT Pipe Clamp is so strong it can be installed with a Hilti Gun, saving you time and labor costs.


Significant Savings: Priced affordably, the V-BAT clamp offers substantial cost savings compared to traditional clamps. Its universal fit and versatile application further enhance its cost-effectiveness by reducing the need for multiple clamp sizes.

Longevity and Guarantee

Extended Lifespan: The V-BAT contains UV stabilizers and is designed to last over 15 years, this longevity ensures that the initial investment in the clamp pays off over time.

5-year Quality Guarantee: Uniclamp USA offers a 5-year Guarantee on quality-related defects, along with a risk-free 365-day and 105% money-back guarantee.
