Copper tubing is a versatile tubing that has many uses. One of the main uses is in plumbing for supplying hot and cold water. Also, Copper tubing is used with gas lines as well. These are just a few examples of how it used, but copper tubing is also a huge part of HVAC systems. The most common type of this tubing is soft copper and rigid copper. Soft copper is also known as ductile, it easy to move and bend and is best for flare connections.
Rigid copper is usually used for water lines. As you may have guessed, rigid copper cannot be bent and uses elbow fittings to position around corners. Out of the two types, soft copper is usually used in HVAC systems. To straighten the copper tubing you need a tube straightener to do that and that is where Tridan comes in!
