Why use TRANSAIR aluminium pipe fittings?

Aluminium offers many durable and hygienic properties. In comparison, steel or copper will corrode over time. This means that TRANSAIR pipes continuously provide clean air quality with optimum flow rate performance – one of TRANSAIR’s key advantages.

The easy installation of TRANSAIR aluminium pipe fittings also significantly reduces installation, maintenance and operating costs versus traditional pipe work. Threading, soldering or gluing of pipework is not necessary with TRANSAIR fittings.

In fact, labour costs for installing this product account for only 20% of installation costs. Using TRANSAIR pipes also drastically reduces energy costs by increasing efficiency, diminishing pressure drops and eliminating leaks. Aluminium also provides a low friction coefficient surface, ensuring optimal flow throughout the pipe.

TRANSAIR aluminium pipe fitting benefits

TRANSAIR pipes can be integrated into existing copper and steel pipework systems, without affecting performance, making them ideal for upgrading and expanding compressed air systems. TRANSAIR pipework for compressed air has a higher flow performance than galvanised steel at a fraction of the weight.

Other key benefits include:

  • The unique design allows for easy modification or extension.
  • It is quicker, easier and cleaner to install than galvanised steel.
  • It is highly resistant to corrosion, aggressive environments and mechanical shocks.
  • It has a maximum working pressure of 16 bar.
  • It has a maximum vacuum level of 98.7% (13 mbar abs).
