Transair System Overview
Transair Pipe to Pipe Challenge
Advantages of Transair’s Aluminium Piping 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 compressed air system typically saves a plant 20 to 50% of its electric bill, sometimes even up to 60% within 24 months.
In recent years, aluminum compressed air piping systems have risen in popularity, particularly due to several factors:
- Quick Installation
Aluminium also has a low friction coefficient, providing the best possible laminar flow. Full-bore fittings further minimise pressure drop for optimum flow and energy efficiency. Leak-free connectors prevent air loss and wasted energy.
Aluminium is ideal for installations requiring the highest quality air. Aluminium material will not rust or corrode, and has no rough surfaces or interior restrictions that accumulate contaminants. The smooth interior with full-bore design allows air to flow to your dryers and filters for efficient removal ensuring higher longevity of equipment.
Compressed Air Application
In the past, compressed air users have been burdened by the limitations of traditional compressed air pipe systems. Difficult installation and modification, poor air quality, and high-pressure losses are all common problems. Transair solves these problems with its innovative design making installation fast, simple, and economical.
Transair offers significant savings on installation, maintenance and operating costs when compared to traditional compressed air piping systems. It is lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion, which ensures extended longevity of equipment and can help to avoid frequent changes of filter elements. Its removable and interchangeable components allow users to easily reconfigure production layouts or implement process changes within minutes.
The versatility of Transair’s quick connections also eliminates the need to thread, solder or glue pipe. Its “full bore” components and low friction coefficient of aluminum ensure optimal and constant flow throughout your compressed air system, and its unique sealing technology guarantees Transair to be leak-free.
Transair is an environmentally sustainable and responsible product that reduces the carbon footprint by 80% over steel piping installations. The materials used to produce Transair pipe and fittings are 100% recyclable and guaranteed silicone-free. Transair is also ideal for aggressive environments, with a specifically powder-coated outer surface that enhances mechanical, physical, and chemical properties.
By installing Transair, industrial facilities can increase efficiency, reduce pressure drops, and eliminate leaks while improving operational efficiencies and minimizing installation and maintenance costs. Transair can be integrated into existing copper and steel compressed air pipe systems without compromising performance, making it perfect for upgrades or expansion projects.
Vacuum pumps are necessary elements in any workshop, but can be an unwanted source of heat and noise on the shop floor. Installing a centralized vacuum system will improve working conditions in the plant, and because pump maintenance can be performed without stopping workshop machinery, the system will increase overall productivity.
Transair’s quick-connect piping system for vacuum systems to 98.7% (29.6″ Hg) offers a high-quality vacuum solution that will increase the life expectancy of your equipment and the durability of your products. Our aluminum pipe is naturally resistant to corrosion and the unique quick-connect interlocking components guarantee a leak-free connection, ensuring optimal airflow and reduced maintenance costs for your system.
Transair’s modular and reusable system is easy to setup and adjust, safe, durable, and requires just half the time to install compared to PVC piping systems that are traditionally used for centralised vacuum systems. All products are developed to be maintenance-free, and are stocked and available in grey for easy identification among your other piping systems.
Inert Gas Application
Transair conveys nitrogen for a number of uses, including:
- As a blanketing gas to prevent fire and explosions
- To protect products from degradation by replacing atmospheric oxygen
- To treat molten metal manufacturing
- To avoid oxidation during the heat treatment of metallic products, and during welding and laser cutting
- In garages – filling tyres to increase longevity
Transair piping systems are uniquely designed for optimum performance while using inert gases. The smooth interior with “full bore” design allows the gas to flow free without compromising its properties. Transair is suitable for the distribution of Argon, Nitrogen, CO2 mixtures, Helium and many mixed specialty gases for up to 232 psi in temperatures from -4°F to 140°F.
Regarding the safety aspect of Transair, the polyamide with fibreglass and treated-brass constructed connectors are non-flammable with no propagation of flame. Furthermore, Transair has Qualicoat certification that is a guarantee of the quality of the lacquer finish applied to Transair aluminium pipe, which enhances mechanical, physical and chemical properties.
