    Pro Press Fittings

    When do you think manufactures of a Pro Press Type fittings will be applied to the line set connections on Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems. Guessing they would start, with fittings mated to hard drawn tubing first.Would have to handle extreme OD temperature conditions and higher refrigerant pressures than water. I say it' s doable sometime in the future.

    I think they will start with refrigeration first, mating to hard drawn tubing,as you know the suction pressures on refrigeration systems are typically very very low, and depending on what type of refrigerant used typically the head pressures are not anywhere near as high as R410A or even R22 . More in line with R134 or the old R12. Faster installs larger profit margin.

    I forgot to mention your typical manifold gauge hoses are just crimped and rated for what 2000 psi

    Flare fittings already allow you to make connections without brazing.

    I once saw where an old maintenance man installed an r-12 split refer unit with cpvc pipe. The amazing thing was that I saw it two years after he installed it. It was still running....
