Subscribe to our Youtube channel
You can use the BreakFree® Power Tube Expander on copper lines between 3/8″ and 1 1/8″ in diameter. The tool also comes with instructions right on the side, which lets you know that you can only use it with soft or annealed copper, copper must be reamed or deburred, operation can be stopped at any time by pressing the sole button on the tool, and you can reset the tool at any time by pushing the slider forward.
The battery is also long-lasting, meaning you can get many uses out of the tool before you need to recharge it, and the tool also has a battery life indicator to let you know roughly how much longer you can use the tool before you need to recharge it.
This tool makes swaging very easy in the field, and it comes with a light to help you see the copper tubing in dark places or at night. To use the tool, merely ream or deburr your copper, insert the expander head into the copper, press the button, and hold the copper in place. The tool will expand the tubing and stop automatically once it has finished.
