In­dus­trial Air Sys­tems’ Pneutech alu­minium air pip­ing range brings some real cost sav­ings to your com­pressed air sys­tem, says tech­ni­cian Nigel Poole.

Cost sav­ings be­cause it com­bines the huge ben­e­fits of highly ef­fec­tive air trans­fer pip­ing with ease of in­stal­la­tion, giv­ing the best of both worlds-ef­fi­ciency and econ­omy. In fact, in most in­stances the Pneutech Alu Air pip­ing can be eas­ily and rapidly in­stalled with­out the need of pro­fes­sional labour.

Pneutech alu­minium pip­ing is both light­weight and ex­cep­tion­ally rigid, re­quir­ing less than half the usual sup­ports as needed by equiv­a­lent poly pipe sys­tems. There is no risk of sag­ging (and re­sult­ing wa­ter ac­cu­mu­la­tion,) as in poly pip­ing and even in ad­verse cli­mates, the alu­minium pip­ing main­tains ab­so­lute rigid­ity.

The thin-walled pipe con­struc­tion makes for very high air flow rates and when com­pared to poly pipe will trans­fer up to twice the air­flow for the same out­side wall di­am­e­ter.

The pip­ing is ex­tremely light­weight and in most cases can be hung by a sin­gle in­staller, sav­ing on ex­pen­sive labour charges. The smooth in­ter­nal wall cre­ates very lit­tle re­sis­tance, re­duc­ing pres­sure drop to an ab­so­lute min­i­mum, which in­creases the air ef­fi­ciency and leads to sig­nif­i­cant en­ergy sav­ings, es­pe­cially with larger com­pressed air set-ups.

Pneutech pip­ing uses strong ny­lon push-lock style fit­tings, which can be dis­as­sem­bled and reused at any point down the track. This means the sys­tem can be very sim­ply ex­tended added or al­tered as is so of­ten the need with grow­ing com­pressed air re­quire­ments.

In­dus­trial Air NZ’s tech­ni­cal man­ager Poole says: “Of the many com­pressed air pipe sys­tems I have seen over the years, the new Alu Air pip­ing would ‘take the cake’ as it’s not only a high qual­ity and ef­fi­cient fluid trans­fer sys­tem, it is also very fast and sim­ple to in­stall.

“I would pre­dict that most com­pa­nies would choose to in­stall this sys­tem them­selves, as it re­quires no glue, no spe­cial tool­ing, and it very easy to as­sem­ble! And un­like other alu­minium pip­ing sys­tems we have sold and used, our su­pe­rior Pneutech prod­uct is also very com­pet­i­tively priced.”

In­dus­trial Air Sys­tems Pneutech air pip­ing is avail­able in 20mm up to 63mm sizes and is suited to retic­u­late air vol­umes from 20 to 1,000cfm.

The alu­minium com­pressed air pip­ing car­ries in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and is now be­ing widely used in 1,000’s of in­stal­la­tions glob­ally.
