Transair Quick Connection Compressed Air Pipe System

The purpose of the compressed air piping system is to deliver compressed air to the points of usage. The compressed air needs to be delivered with enough volume, appropriate quality, and pressure to properly power the components that use the compressed air. Compressed air is costly to manufacture. A poorly designed compressed air system can increase energy costs, promote equipment failure, reduce production efficiencies, and increase maintenance requirements. It is generally considered true that any additional costs spent improving the compressed air piping system will pay for themselves many times over the life of the system. Compressed air is utilized in many commercial industrial facilities and is considered a utility essential to production. Transair’s aluminum compressed air pipe system provides airtight fittings with full bore flow creating a more energy efficient system.

Transair compressed air pipe systems are quick to install and ready for immediate pressurization. Components are removable and interchangeable and allow immediate and easy layout modifications reducing production downtime. Unlike the performance of steel pipe, which degrades over time due to corrosion, air quality is clean with optimum flow rate performance with the use of a Transair pipe system.

Thanks to its large choice of sizes in Ø 4" , Ø 3", Ø 2 1/2" , Ø 1 1/2", Ø 7/8" and Ø 1/2" and an extensive range of accessories, the Transair system meets the requirements of numerous industrial and garage workshop installations. Furthermore, you can't beat the simple installation, energy savings, and layout flexibility of Transair compressed air piping solutions.

Guidelines for Optimizing an Air Pipe System
The installation of an air pipe system should be completed in accordance with certain guidelines. These pages include various recommendations to be observed in order to obtain the expected performance, reliability and security of your air pipe system.
  • Bends and bypasses involve pressure drops. To avoid them, use assemblies: they allow modification of a system and the bypass of obstacles.
  • Limit excessive reductions in pipe diameters, which also involve pressure drops

  • Threaded components create ever increasing leaks over time, choose materials that do not corrode.
  • Ensure consistent quality clean air.
  • The size of a system has direct influence on the good performance of tools: choose the appropriate diameter according to the required flow rate and acceptable pressure drop.

  • To facilitate access for maintenance, do not position a system underground.
  • Install drops as close as possible to areas of operation, therefore where tools require maximum energy for optimal working.
  • Install pipe supports as follows: two supports per 10' pipe length and three supports per 20' pipe length.

Fast and Safe Opening or Closing of A Compressed Air System

In order to ensure the safety of workplace operators, overhead tasks are subjected to various regulations that may require the use of special equipment.Since it is operated from the workshop floor, the remote shut-off valve guarantees:
  • Personnel safety by avoiding the risk of climbing to access
  • Quick operation with no need for ladders, scaffolds or lifting equipment

Principle of Operation
Single acting valve, which is normally closed.

Technical specifications
  • Working fluid: compressed air (dry, wet and lubricated air)
  • Air quality: filtered to 50 µm minimum
  • Maximum working pressure: 13 bar (185 psi)
  • Minimum pilot pressure: 4 bar (60 psi)
  • Working temperature: -20 ° to +60°C (-4°F to 140°F)
For compressed air pipe systems, pilot pressure is taken from upstream, without the need for any separate energy supply. Piloting is controlled via the pilot kit connected to the valve by push-in connection.

For vacuum systems, a separate external compressed air supply to the valve is necessary for the corresponding port on the valve to be shut-off.
