Air Compressors Australia introduces the Legris Transair Aluminium Pipe Systems.
Designed for both primary and secondary distribution of compressed air, vacuum and inert gases and fluids, these aluminium pipe systems reduce energy consumption, improve operational efficiencies, and minimised installation and maintenance costs.
The materials and modular design of the Transair aluminium pipe systems make them easier and less expensive to install than traditional products. For instance, labour accounts for up to 80 percent of a steel system installation, up to 70 percent of a copper system and up to 60 percent of a plastic system while it is only 20 percent of the cost of installing a Transair pipe System.
The ability to reconfigure production layouts or implement process changes quickly is critical. With the Transair aluminium pipe systems reconfiguration only requires the rotation of the fitting nut 360 degrees and pulling the pipe from the fitting. Also, since the fittings are not soldered or glued, components are reusable, and can be removed then reinstalled. The modular design and handling ease enables plant personnel to implement many layout changes within minutes, instead of hours. This minimises downtime and increases plant productivity.
Interior pipe corrosion is a common cause of pressure drops and higher maintenance costs in pipe systems. Smooth bore piping, such as plastic and aluminium, resist corrosion. Galvanized and black iron pipe decreases in opening over time. Galvanized and black iron fittings are crudely designed with restrictions to air flow internally. Brass and copper fittings and valves typically have smaller bores than the associated pipe size. Transair pipes will not corrode and the fittings have been designed for compressed air flow with full bore construction.
Durable protection of equipment Transair enables elimination of the problem of rust, usually associated with steel air pipe systems. It guarantees the complete absence of corrosion (self protection by formation of aluminium oxide). The inner surface of aluminium pipe ensures good and constant quality clean air continuously.
Legris Transair aluminium pipe systems also protect industrial equipment against water deterioration thanks to its quick assembly brackets with integral upward loop.
