Traditional refrigerant fittings require technicians to utilize an open flame in the brazing process in order to bind the fittings to pipes. This technique can be dangerous and pose a safety hazard to both the installer as well as the home or business owner. However, until the invention of SmartLock fittings, this was the standard.
Today, the no-braze refrigerant fittings from SmartLock allow HVAC technicians to connect fittings to any type of pipe without the need to use an open flame. These refrigerant fittings utilize our patented metal-to-metal technology to create a permanent seal that doesn’t leak and requires absolutely no brazing.
In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss why no-braze refrigerant fittings are the fittings we expect to see widely used throughout the HVAC industry in the future.
