brazing is alot better, higher pressures, your safer, look at refrigeration lines those are all brazed
well from the copper hand book
1/2'' annealed pipe 781 psi at 100f
1/2'' drawn pipe 1341 at 100f
quite a bit of difference, if you over heat copper drawn pipe it becomes annealed so you use the annealed rating.
Im guessing its fine for refrigeration because its small dia tube used at low pressure for the tube.
