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

collar.

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

if present.

NOTE: IF NOT USING PRE-INSULATED

YOGAPIPE ACR, YOGAPIPE MUST BE INSULATED AS

PER CODE.

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

present.

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

Products Corporation P-80 RediLube.
