    In the past, "real" refrigeration condensing units always had traditional style service valve for everything. I suspect it won't be much longer before they disappear altogether.

    Worked on a hoshizaki self contained reach in cooler the other day. Not only did it have service ports, they were real service valves! It was less than 2 years old.

    I miss the solid brass valves that were not only serviceable, but they didn't rust and lasted forever.

    Tell me about it.

    We installed a new Copeland condensing unit about 2 years ago and the suction service valve already rusted to the point of leaking at the pipe connection.

    I never told you that.

    The whole dust cap thing is nonsense.
