Parker Transair Aluminium Compressed Air Piping

Not only do Tidyco supply the Parker Transair range, the company offers a complete design, fit and installation service with specialist experience in creating an aluminium compressed air piping system.

Lightweight design combined with high quality pressure and flow makes Transair the ideal choice for an aluminium compressed air piping system as well as liquid and inert gas applications.

Transair is the ideal aluminium compressed air piping system for compressed air, vacuum, and inert gas applications. Durable and corrosion-resistant, Transair’s lightweight construction outperforms traditional piping systems. End-users can reconfigure production layouts in minutes, not hours.

The system is versatile, benefiting from quick-connect interlocking system which eliminates the need to thread or solder pipe.

Transair also significantly reduces plant energy costs by increasing efficiency, reducing pressure drops, and eliminating leaks.

Compressed air represents one of the largest opportunities for immediate energy savings, reducing air leaks is key in improving the efficiency of a network. However, improving the flow and pressure drop characteristics of a pipework system can give potential cost savings of up to 34%.

 Why use Transair?

Transair Compressed Air Piping System quick connect pipework systems are quick to assemble, reducing running costs whilst offering superior performance and maximum energy efficiency. If you require cost effective Compressed Air Pipework, Transair is the solution for you;

  • Quick to Assemble, Aluminium and Stainless Steel lightweight pipes come ready to assemble with Push-to-Connect fittings
  • Consistent, Clean Delivery, Aluminium and Stainless Steel pipes ensure a total absence of corrosion, the inner pipe surface consistently delivers clean compressed air, inert gas, and chilled water (stainless steel only)
  • Optimum Efficiency, The low friction coefficient of aluminium and stainless steel pipe along with the sealing characteristics ensure optimal and constant flow throughout

Parker Transair compressed air aluminium quick connect pipework systems are quick to install and ready for immediate pressurisation. Parts and Tubing are removable and interchangeable, allowing immediate and easy layout modifications. All components incorporate quick assembly connection (push-to-connect) which enables Transair systems to be assembled much more quickly than galvanised, black steel or copper systems.

If you required a galvanised system you would (on average) be looking at 1 – 2 hours for every 2 metre length you install, with Transair you are able to install 7 times the amount of pipework in the same amount of time.

By investing in compressed air aluminium quick connect pipework systems you will achieve reduced air leaks of 42%, compressor improvement of 24% and an overall global system improvement of 34% – saving significant money in a short space of time.

Just a few benefits of Parker Transair;

  • Reduced Downtime
  • Minimal Corrosion
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Huge Economic Benefits

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:

• Modularity
• Quick Installation
• Aestheticism

Aluminum also has a low friction coefficient, providing the best possible laminar flow. Full-bore fittings further minimize pressure drop for optimum flow and energy efficiency. Leak-free connectors prevent air loss and wasted energy.

Aluminum is ideal for installations requiring the highest quality air. Aluminum 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.
