Aluminum is an Efficient Alternative in Air Pipe Systems

Robin Daughtry | October 2nd, 2013

Transair – Specialists in Air Pipe Work Systems

Aluminum Offers Advantages of Light Weight, Strength and Resistance to Corrosion – Making it a Modern, High-Performance Choice

Transair offers a cost effective, innovative and energy efficient aluminum compressed air pipe system that is easy to assemble, change and expand.  Labor accounts for only 20% of the cost of installing Transair.  By comparison, labor can account for as much as 80% of a steel system and up to 70% of a copper system.  The materials and modular design of a Transair air pipe system makes it quicker and less expensive to install than traditional systems.  Transair’s aluminum piping is easier to lift and handle than standard steel piping.  The push-to-connect fittings secure connections with a simple push, which is much quicker and safer than soldering copper.

Advantages of Aluminum for Quality

  • Transair systems are regularly tested to guarantee optimum performance.
  • High tolerance control of the pipe dimensions contribute to the overall capability of the system
  • The absence of corrosion on the interior of the pipe guarantees that a clean air supply is maintained throughout the pipe network until it reaches apparatus and equipment
  • Guaranteed for 10 years
  • Easy installation and handling – extremely light weight (about 3 times less heavy than steel).  One person can install and cut the pipe with a few simple hand tools.
  • QUALICOAT Certification guarantees the quality of the pipe lacquering process and its durability against the outside environment (scratches, resistance to dust, ..) so that installation remains aesthetically pleasing
