Congratulations! You have chosen a faster, more efficient way to install an air conditioning
line-set. Note that proper installation is essential to ensuring longevity of the equipment
on which this product is being installed. We have provided specific information regarding
the brazing procedure and pressure testing figures. Please ensure to adhere to these
guidelines for ease of installation and warranty purposes.
Determine whether a male or female fitting is most suitable for your application.
Using refrigeration best practices (pre-cleaning and nitrogen shielding), braze selected fittings
to both coil and condensing unit.
Visually inspect completed brazed connection
for any potential leak points. NOTE: Re-brazing
will not be possible once pipe crimp connection has
been completed. Clean barbed surface of fitting with
wire brush to ensure clean pipe contact area.
Carefully roll the o-rings into the recessed grooves
on the fitting body. Start with the first groove and
work towards the back of the fitting as the o-rings will
roll over the rings that have been already seated in the
grooves. Lightly spinning the o-rings will ensure they are
not twisted and are properly in place.
Next, snap the plastic isolation collar onto the
stainless steel crimping sleeve. Ensure the three
inspection holes are at the end closest to the isolation
Push the collar and sleeve assembly onto the fitting
body.The plastic collar will make an audible "snap"
when it is properly installed. Spin lightly to ensure
correct seating of collar/sleeve assembly.
Using a blade-style pipe cutter, make a square
cut, being careful to minimize pipe distortion.
Manually remove any burrs or debris from pipe end
NOTE: IF NOT USING PRE-INSULATED
YOGAPIPE ACR, YOGAPIPE MUST BE INSULATED AS
In preparation for installing the pipe onto the fit-
ting assembly, reaming is required. Insert reamer
into pipe end.Turn the reaming tool 3-5 rotations with
enough force to cut a bevel into the pipe end. Remove
the reamer and inspect pipe end. Remove shavings if
Push pipe onto fitting and into sleeve until pipe
is visible through the inspection windows in the
stainless steel sleeve.
Pro Tip: Light lubrication of o-rings on 7/8" and 11/8"
fittings will assist with ease of installation of larger sizes.
Use only approved compatible lubricant - International
