The Transair advantage avoids the problems encountered with galvanized steel pipe. Transair stainless steel drops (3/4", 22mm) are made from 316L stainless steel which is compatible to be in permanent food contact per FDA CFR21 requirements for food contact applications. All fittings are manufactured in stainless steel 316L with FKM seals with push to connect technology. The inner surface of stainless steel pipe ensures good and constant quality clean air continuously. From the compressor to point of use, Transair pipework systems give higher longevity of equipment and avoid frequent changes of filter elements. For renovation projects, Transair pipework systems can be easily connected to copper or steel pipe. They offer higher performance and make it easy to extend an existing network.
The inner surface of galvanized steel pipe gradually corrodes in contact with water. Corrosion causes the formation of oxide particles and cavities. Compressed air is polluted and damages equipment. Deposits accumulate and create roughness, reducing air flow and increasing pressure drops. Moreover corrosion is a source of air leaks: up to 30% of the volume of air may be wasted due to leaks with an old pipework system.
Your compressed air distribution piping is your means for transporting compressed air and represents your link between supply, storage, and demand. Furthermore, compressed air represents one of the largest opportunities for immediate energy savings. A properly designed Transair compressed air system typically saves a plant 20% to 50% of its electric bill, sometimes even up to 60% within 24 months. Labor accounts for only 20% of installation costs, compared to the 50-80% of such costs associated with traditional steel or black iron compressed air piping. While traditional products often corrode and degrade over time, Transair aluminum piping consistently provides clean, quality air though its leak-free, corrosion-resistant design, ensuring longevity of the equipment.
In recent years, aluminum-based compressed air piping systems have risen in popularity, particularly due to several factors:
• Quick Installation
