Compressed Air Pipework and Installations
Compressed Air Pipework and InstallationsHaving a correctly sized and installed air compressor is only the first part of a complete compressed air system. Once you have the compressed air you still need to get it distributed to the parts of the factory where it will be used. This is where the type of compressed air pipework to use and overall system design come in. Both of these will have significant effects of overall system efficiency and the amount of energy used to run your compressed air system. There are many different types of compressed air pipework to choose from. These range from plastic or rubber temporary systems, through traditional galvanised steel systems to more modern and high efficiency extruded aluminium systems designed for large, high efficiency permanent solutions. Each of these systems have benefits and often drawbacks which need to be taken into account when designing the system.
- The cheaper, less robust plastic push fit or temporary rubber hose systems are good for short term solutions or temporary systems.
- Galvanised steel pipework is heavy and rough bore so is inefficient and does tend to corrode and eventually leak.
- The extruded aluminium systems are robust, long term solutions and tend to be more leak resistant depending on system design.
TESEO compressed air pipeworkWe tend to use a high efficiency extruded aluminium system called TESEO for most of our major pipework installations, although quite often we will use other aluminium systems or galvanised steel systems especially when we are extending an existing system and it makes most sense to use the existing legacy system.
