Installation Guidelines

  • Alt-Line HVAC tubing does not require any special cutting, bending, chamfering tools. All standard HVAC compression and press fittings are suitable. Alt-Line tubing adapts to all other typical copper installation requirements.
  • Alt-Line does recommend that when using a tube bender, the tube bender outer pads should be lubricated on the surface of the pads.
    • The polymer corrosion resistant coating on the ALT-Line tube is dry and can cause the Delrin bending pads to grip the tube and not slide. Prior to installation, if the pads are lubricated, they slide perfect, and the tube will bend perfectly.
