Avoid Stressful Project Call Backs
75% Fewer Brazes and 99.9% Reduction in Leaks
Hard Copper piping or “stick piping” installation requires expensive, highly skilled tradesman and brazers and installation is antiquated – measure, cut, add pre-formed bends, braze, wait, and check for leaks. It’s very laborious and prone to failure.
That’s where Reftekk comes in.
Reftekk is a fully ASHRAE compliant bendable copper piping (also known as Soft Anneal (O60)). Reftekk eliminates up to 75% of the brazed joints and ALL the fittings on your project.
- Cut your install time in half
- Reduce jobsite labor
- Eliminate stress
- No more fittings to lug around
The Reftekk Digi-Bender forms tubing up to 190-degree angle. A handy phone app makes this tool easy to use and offers precise bends by scrolling the LED control wheel to the desired angle. Last step is pull the trigger and watch the machine do the rest.
Reftekk Digi-Bender bends many sizes of Soft Anneal copper tubing: 5/8”, 3/4”, 7/8”, 1-1/8”, and 1-3/8”. Another tool called Imperial 370-FH copper tube bender is ideal for smaller sizes of tubing: 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2”.
All copper tubing options come in 19-feet length (to fit in job site containers), and the ends are plugged to prevent dirt from getting inside.
Reftekk tubing is capable of having a swageable connection applied to the ends and avoid the use of couplings. This means less time preparing, purging, and brazing. The swage is made with the Reftekk SwageX swaging expander, and provides the correct swage depth on the end of any bendable quality copper tubing lengths. The Reftekk swageable copper tubing uses an internal brazing ring (flux built in) that you insert into the end of the swaged copper tube before brazing. This method provides brazing from the inside-out, the idea, easy way to do it.
Reftekk also carries refrigerant ball valves with an optional EPDM insulation jacket in sizes ranging from a 1/4” to 2-1/8”. The valve has a maximum working pressure of 700 psig and a working temperature range from -40F to 300F (-40C to 150C).
