Counter flow chiller cracked fittings

Anyone have problems with the chillzilla brass fittings cracking? I am on my 3rd now that has cracked its 1/2 npt fittings. Maybe it’s something I’m doing. I use thread tape and haven’t been over tightening them, just snug past hand tight. Any ideas welcome. I don’t want to return another, thinking about just putting jb weld or silicone on the threads and calling it a day.

I have never had any problems with mine. Do you take the fittings on and off often or are the chillzilla’s fresh of the box when this is happening?

Are you using a crescent wrench to tighten the fittings or something else?
