Eliminates Need for Copper Fittings: When used with a proper bending tool, the Reftekk Swage Expander allows installers to create brazing sockets at the ends of any bendable quality copper tubing sections. This eliminates the need for elbows and couplings, lowering material costs.
Reduces number of brazes by up to half: The Reftekk Swage Expander, when used in conjunction with bendable quality copper tubing, allows each joint to be sealed with only a single braze rather than two brazes associated with conventionally brazed fittings. This reduces labor and the cost of brazing material while significantly reducing leak potential in the system.
Proper Brazing Tolerance: Creates brazing sockets with tight tolerances, resulting in better capillary action and fewer voids, ultimately reducing leak potential.
Proper Brazing Socket Depth: Only tool on the market designed to produce the correct swage depth for brazing (per ASME B16.50-2013), leading to a more complete braze with less leak potential.
Swages Type L Copper ACR Tube Sizes: Head sizes come in 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”, 7/8” 1-1/8”,1-3/8”, and 1-5/8”.
