Sound engineering practice for the optimization of an air pipe system
■ When installing a Transair® system, work should be performed in accordance with good engineering practice.
■ Bends and bypasses represent sources of pressure drop.
■ Keep in-line pipe diameter reductions to a minimum.
■ The diameter of the pipe will influence pressure drop and the operation of point-of-use equipment.
■ Select the diameter according to the required flow rate and acceptable pressure drop at the point of use.
■ Never encase the network in a hard solid mass, in order to facilitate maintenance or servicing.
■ To insulate Transair® industrial water systems thermally, we recommend insulating the Transair® stainless steel pipes.
■ Position drops and feeds to take-off points as close as possible to the point of use.
