Transair aluminum pipe is the ideal system for compressed air, vacuum, and inert gas applications. It offers significant savings on installation, maintenance and operating costs when compared to traditional compressed air piping systems. Its removable and interchangeable components allow users to easily modify production layouts or execute process changes within minutes.
Transair aluminum pipe is the only system that meets ASME certification and it's the only product with true push-to-connect fittings, eliminating the need to thread, solder or glue pipe. Its unique sealing technology guarantees Transair to be leak-free.
Transair, the original "blue aluminum air pipe", can also be incorporated into existing copper and steel compressed air pipe systems without compromising performance, making it the perfect solution for upgrades or expansion projects. Unlike the performance of copper or steal, which degrades over time due to corrosion, Transair pipe provides clean air quality with optimal flow rate performance. Available in 1/2" to 6", Transair is the ideal pipe system for any industrial application.
Transair aluminum pipe for compressed air, vacuum and inert gas systems offers the advantages of being lightweight, strong and corrosion-resistant.
Transair offers an array of couplers and plugs for the installation and extension of a compressed air piping system. SCOUT Technology is a state-of-the-art wireless monitoring solution that enables you to view the performance of a compressed air system 24 hours a day through a web-based dashboard.
Transair pipes are made from extruded aluminum, providing a sturdy, lightweight alternative to iron, steel, copper, and plastic. Most importantly for your bottom line, however, is the combination of the smooth bore interior and the natural corrosion resistance of aluminum. Unlike iron, steel, and copper, which can slow down your airflow through pitting and buildup over time, Transair aluminum pipes will retain their pristine interior and keep your air flowing smoothly, reducing the costs associated with strain on your system. While plastic piping may be similarly resistant to corrosion, its brittle nature can prove dangerous - and even deadly - to your personnel if ruptured by an accidental impact, and OSHA has regulated against its use for compressed air in many states. Because of its strength and corrosion resistance, aluminum is the best material choice.
With patented push-to-connect composite fittings for smaller pipe diameters (and similarly simple couplings for larger pipe diameters), Transair is the easiest piping system to assemble and modify (watch this video comparing a Transair installation to the same configuration in copper and carbon steel). Installing a Transair system requires a simple set of hand tools to measure, cut, clean, and join pipe, with no soldering or welding of any joints whatsoever. The lightweight pipes are easy to lift and position into place, and the rapid assembly of the fittings saves time and effort. Mitigate downtime and installation labor costs by doing the Transair installation or upgrade yourself. Take a look at our installation guides to see just how easy it is to upgrade to Transair.
Investment in a Transair system pays off higher dividends in the end, thanks to the modular nature of the pipe and fittings. Because the fittings operate on a purely mechanical sealing basis, Transair pipe and fittings are as easy to disassemble as they are to assemble - and every part is reusable. This makes expanding or reconfiguring an existing system just as easy as the first installation, since the same tools and techniques are required. Check out our installation guides to see how the modular pipe and fittings interact with one another.
