Compressed air users are often burdened by the limitations of traditional compressed air pipe systems that use copper or black iron piping. Common problems include difficult installation and modification, poor air quality, and high-pressure losses. With its innovative design, aluminum piping systems solve these problems making installation fast, simple, and economical.

When compared to traditional compressed air piping systems, aluminum piping system offers significant savings on installation, maintenance, and operating costs. It is lightweight, strong, and resistant to corrosion, which ensures the longevity of equipment and helps to avoid frequent changes in filter elements. Its removable, interchangeable components allow users to easily reconfigure production layouts or implement process changes within minutes.

The engineered polymer fittings are reusable, interchangeable and enable your plant personnel to save serious time when making layout changes. When compared to traditional compressed copper or black iron air piping systems, the ability to reconfigure your production layout or implement process changes quickly is a significant key differential. This ease of use minimizes your downtime and increases plant productivity and efficiency. The fittings are simply pushed or bolted together, which enables disassembly when required, unlike other connection technologies that are permanently crimped or welded.

The lightweight components and quick-connect interlocking design allow for easy and immediate layout modifications with zero need to thread, solder, or glue pipe. Labor accounts for only 20% of installation costs, compared to the 50-80% of costs associated with traditional steel or black iron compressed air piping. While traditional products often corrode and degrade over time, aluminum piping consistently provides clean, quality air though its leak-free, corrosion-resistant design, ensuring the longevity of the equipment. Available in ½” to 6″, aluminum piping systems significantly reduce plant energy costs by increasing efficiency, reducing pressure drops, and eliminating leaks.

By installing our aluminum piping system your plant can increase efficiency, reduce pressure drops, and eliminate leaks while improving operational efficiencies and minimizing installation and maintenance costs. The aluminum piping we offer can be integrated into existing copper and steel compressed air pipe systems without compromising performance, making it perfect for upgrades or expansion projects.
