copper fill and vent pipes

earl burnermannearl burnermann Posts: 126Member
I was just on a job, new construction, and noticed they had installed the fill and vent oil line using copper. I know that every oil company I've ever worked for would not repair these pipes, you had to have the piping redone with black pipe if you had a problem. My question is are you allowed by code to use copper for this purpose? I'm not having any luck looking it up.



Thanks.

    Where are you located Earl?

    Copper is a no-no here in Mass for a fill and vent. Oil supply line yes, just not bare copper

    the solder

    in canada we cant use copper fill and vent because the solder used for the connections has a melting temperature less than 1000degrees Fahrenheit. the oil supply line to the furnace is fine because it uses flared connections.

    It depends on the filler material

    I think it's ok as long as the joints are brazed and not soft soldered
