RectorSeal® Corp. has been named the Canadian representative for Aspen Pumps. The U.K.-based company manufactures condensate pumps designed specifically for ductless minisplit and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air conditioners.

Houston-based RectorSeal is currently the exclusive U.S. distributor of Aspen Pumps, an agreement that was part of its 2011 assets acquisition of HVACR product manufacturer, Airtec Products. RectorSeal has more than doubled the 22-year-old Aspen Pumps' U.S. volume, which helped inspire the new Canadian agreement, according to William Flynn, RectorSeal's vice president of international sales.

Aspen Pumps makes a variety of compact condensate pumps that fit into minisplit and VRF evaporator drain pans, linesets, lineset elbows, and remote positions. The agreement enables the 77-year-old RectorSeal to now offer Canadian HVACR companies its entire line of condensate management accessories for the growing ductless minisplit and VRF equipment market.

As it does in the U.S., RectorSeal will support the Aspen Pump line with internal customer and technical support and product training through its HVACR wholesale distribution network.

"Our goal is to give RectorSeal and Aspen Pumps the same name recognition that our Fortress™ line of air conditioning lineset protection duct currently enjoys in Canada," Flynn said.
