Copper Tubing Coil Lengths

regarding the commercially available lengths of ACR grade soft copper for refrigerant use?

We are planning a VFR system where we have to pull the circuits via buried PVC conduit and cannot (or "should not") have field joints. The buried run is over 50 feet, more than what we were told was the limit of available coils (50').

The proposes sizes are, at most, 1-1/8" suction but the liquid lines are 3/8" to 1/2", R410a.

I would think that one could get longer coils, at least in the smaller sizes.


Thanks in advance.

    What wrong with a field joint? If the guy knows how to braze then it should not be a issue.

    50 feet is the max that I see as well.

    Have from chasing that 1 1/8 copper.Glad it you all and not me.

    Thanks Guys!

    I should have checked myself, but that Pex Supply suggestion put this one to bed for me. I copied the engineer on that job and the contractor. :)

    Thanks again-
