Aluminum Piping Increases Compressed Air System Efficiency

By minimizing pressure drops and optimizing compressed air quality, a well-designed air piping system can make a big difference in the energy efficiency of the compressed air system. Modular air piping gives you the freedom to design a custom compressed air piping system to meet the unique needs of your facility while offering flexibility to adjust the design should your facility expand.

Piping systems more than five years old have been shown to exhibit leaks of up to 25 percent and a single quarter-inch air leak at 100 psi will cost more than $2,500 a year depending on current energy costs. Replacing old piping systems with corrosion-free and lightweight AIRpipe aluminum piping helps minimize air leakage and reduce line losses.

For many years, black iron has been the standard choice for piping in the manufacturing industry, even though a more efficient alternative is available. Black iron is very heavy, begins to rust as soon as it is installed and becomes less and less efficient over time.

AIRpipe’s aluminum piping can be installed easily by one person. Our fittings provide perfect alignment and eliminate threading, welding, gluing and crimping and the smooth interior of aluminum piping allows air to pass through the pipe more efficiently while preventing corrosion. Plus, AIRpipe can design a modular air piping system to meet any facility’s needs both now and into the future.
