Can SB1s be used with aluminum, steel or stainless steel tubing?: No, only copper to copper connections
What is the shelf life of the fittings?: The manufacturer sets the shelf life @ 30+ years
Do the fittings need to be insulated after an install?: Yes, just as you would with any other fitting where it would be subject to condensation.
What is the #1 cause of problems with the SB1 fittings ?: Not reading/following the installation instructions
The SBLM1458 depth gauge only goes up to 5/8” so how do I mark 3/4” & 7/8” tubing?: Part number SBLMDC3478 is a combo tool, combining both a depth gauge and a disconnect tool
Do SB1s need to be replaced when retrofitting to a lower GWP refrigerant?: Yes. The compression set of the super neoprene o?rings may be compromised when transitioning from one refrigerant to another. Always install new fittings.
Can the fittings be removed and reinstalled on the same spot of tubing?: The fitting can be installed onto the same spot if the tube is properly sanded and cleaned, removing any etch marks, or replace onto a clean section of tubing.
What is the warranty on SB1 fittings?: A 5?year limited warranty policy which is available upon request.
