    Trane Gas pump lines

    Hi guys, I have a trane rthd 350 ton chiller that I am currently doing relief valves on. Whilst going through this I noticed a fair bit of oil on the floor and a lot of drips of oil on the 3/8” line that leads away from the gas pump going to the filter before injecting into the side of the compressor. Peeling back the insulation I have found that this is a steel line and it is rotted badly thus the oil leakage! Does this line need to remain steel or could I fab up a line in copper? This is a 2004 machine, the one next to it has a new gas pump and it looks to be an updated design with the solinoids relocated to up above the barrels and a few line changes....is there a kit available that includes the lines and are they still steel? Appreciate any replies, thanks!

    Thanks Healey nut, was not so easy to find but to my understanding these units r shipped with the steel lines due to shipping stresses. Should be no problem changing this line to a copper one as long as I can silver solder ��. One guy even suggested putting a sight glass on this line to confirm operation, lots on solenoids leaking and watching compressor superheat in order to help confirm operations. Also noted the lines to the liquid level are probably steel as well so an inspiration of them is in order as I have most of the refrigerant removed. Hope this can be of help to others and someone corrects me if I am wrong on any of the above stated.
