The Innovation of Transair

Piping selection directly affects the three key elements of every compressed air system: flow, pressure and air quality. Poor choices in pipe materials, diameter, and layout cause flow restrictions, which often results in significant pressure drop. Pressure drop is a main cause of increased energy consumption and underperforming air driven tools and equipment.

Choices in piping also directly impact installation costs. Heavier materials increase fatigue and slow work, especially in overhead installations. Also consider the types of fittings to be used. Some connection types cause pressure drop, need special tools, and take more time to install.

Transair, manufactured by Parker Hannifin, is a quick connection aluminum piping solution for compressed air, vacuum, industrial water and inert gas application. Instant connections eliminate the need to thread or solder pipe.  The lightweight aluminum pipe is easy to handle and safe to work with on elevated platforms.  Transair offers significant savings on installation, maintenance and operating costs, making it the most cost effective and efficient pipe system for compressed air.
