Product Overview

Parker Transair offers a cost-effective, innovative and energy efficient aluminum compressed air pipe system that is easy to assemble, change and expand.

Transair offers the right solutions for all of your compressed air, liquid and inert gas applications. Quick assembly, durability, superior performance and reduced overall cost of your compressed air piping, fluid quick connection pipe and inert gas aluminum piping needs available from Cross Hose & Fittings.

Transair’s aluminum and stainless steel pipe systems are easy to assemble and easy to modify. Transair piping is easier to lift and handle than standard steel piping, and its push-to-connect fittings secure connections with a simple push and twist. The fittings eliminate the need for skilled pipe fitters, special tools, pipe preparation and threading.

Easily Create New Connections

Transair also eliminates the time needed for soldering and glue drying. And once the pipe is pushed into the fitting, the connection is secure and ready to be pressurized.

Lastly, various technologies take into account the specific requirements of each diameter of pipe and provide you with an optimum safety factor and easy connection.

Transair also offers an easy means of adding new drop or bypass onto an existing length of pipe is an important consideration for any air pipe work system. Transair quick assembly brackets are designed for this purpose, without the need to cut the pipe. A swans neck built into the brackets retains condensate water in the main line. Thanks to its small size, the Transair quick assembly bracket facilitates new additions in the tightest places and can be used for connecting horizontal branch lines and vertical drops.

Optimum Efficiency of Machinery & Tools

The “full bore” design of Transair’s components, the low friction coefficient of aluminum pipe and stainless steel, and the sealing characteristics of the system ensure optimal and constant flow throughout. Due to its innovative technology, Transair gives better performance in terms of improved flow and reduced pressure drop.

Constant Flow

A 63 mm Transair system gives a flow performance better than that of a nominal (2 ½’’) galvanized steel system. Transair aluminum pipe ensures superior flow performance over a longer period of time.
