The Reftekk Advantage
FEWER BRAZES = FEWER LEAKS
TRADITIONAL H58 HARD COPPER
BENDABLE-QUALITY H55 COPPER
Cold-bendable, no annealing needed.
Less time spent time prepping tubing.
Socket depths designed for brazing.
Half the brazes vs. standard couplings.
Less time spent prepping tubing.
Less time spent purging and brazing.
See how bendable-quality, half-hard (H55) tubing can reduce leaks, labor, and installation time!
NEW BRAZING TECHNIQUES = FEWER LEAKS
Swaged Joint Before Braze
Find out how brazing rings and proper socket depths enhance the brazing process.
EPDM: THE ONLY INSULATION FOR VRV/VRF
Among many other advantages, EPDM is the only insulation material allowed by VRV/VRF manufacturers.
PIPE SUPPORTS: THE CRUCIAL FOUNDATION
Maintaining full insulation thickness at pipe supports is vital to prevent moisture, mold, and structure damage.
Swaged Joint After Braze (Enlarged)
| INTERNAL BRAZING RING:
|| Brazing material in a pre-formed ring for quick and repeatable brazes.
| DOUBLE FILLET:
|| Fillet is ensured on the inside AND outside of brazed joint.
| FULL-DEPTH PENETRATION:
|| Inside-out brazing ensures full depth penetration every time with visual cue.
| VISUAL CUE:
|| See brazing material appear to know the joint is complete.
| PREVENT OVERHEATING:
|| Visual cue helps prevent overheating and volatilizing the phosphorus flux.
| PROPER BRAZING SOCKET:
|| Standard fittings are designed for soldering, NOT brazing!
Proper brazing sockets are approximately half as deep.
INTERNAL BRAZING RING
PROPER BRAZING SOCKET w/ FULL-DEPTH PENETRATION
Exceeds VRV/VRF manufacturers' required operating temperatures of 248 °F.
Nearly ALL other insulation materials will fail or degrade at this temp.
Closed-cell + non-polar + ultra-low permeability = less moisture in building.
Won't leach chlorides if wet, which can corrode the piping over time.
No jacketing required for UV or ozone protection.
Thicknesses up to 3" to meet new energy standards.
EPDM now available on insulated coils (line-sets)!
Thicknesses up to 1-1/2" to help meet new energy standards.
(Some states may require dual layer insulation)
Rigid and adherable support maintains full and continuous insulation.
Packaged with correct metal clamps for easy purchasing & install.
UV and weather resistant.
Easily support line sets and minimize crushing the insulation.
Easily anchors to Unistrut with included hardware.
Allows for expansion and contraction of piping system.
For use indoors and horizontal applications only.
UP TO 75% FEWER BRAZES!
