Parker Hannifin has expanded its range of lightweight aluminium Transair pipe systems with the introduction of a high-volume version, for use in large industrial sites and vacuum applications.

Suitable for use as the primary network for compressed air supply in a diverse range of sectors, from the automotive and aeronautics industries, through food processing to printing works, the new 6in (168mm) diameter pipe system has been designed to complement the existing range of 16.5 to 100mm pipe-diameter sizes.

Designed to be a clean and efficient alternative to traditional galvanised steel compressed air handling systems, Transair pipe systems have smooth bores to ensure optimal flow characteristics and high energy efficiency.

Parker Hannifin claims the capital and operating costs of the Transair system are typically less than 10 per cent of those of traditional steel-welded pipe systems, over a 10-year period.

According to the company, this pipework system is rapid and easy to fit, ensuring a leak-free mechanical connection without the need for crimping, gluing or welding.

All its components are interchangeable and completely reusable for future modifications.

Transair pipe networks are designed to be robust, compact and lightweight, as well as being easier to handle than galvanised steel equivalents that require considerable structural support.

The new 6in diameter version has a lower carbon footprint due to the method of manufacture and reduced use of electricity, which can be as much as 80 per cent less than traditional galvanised steel.

Specially developed design software makes it simple to produce layout drawings and a bill of required materials, speeding up implementation.

The Transair system is backed by a 10-year guarantee, along with the company’s global network of manufacturing, sales and customer support centres.
