ADVER TISEMENT Transair: An Advanced Piping Solution to 50 to 80% for steel and copper. The modular design enables plant personnel to implement many layout changes within minutes, not hours. Increased Energy Efficiency Compressed air represents one of the largest opportunities for immediate energy savings. Plant management is often surprised to hear that compressed air can represent 20 -50% of a plant’s energy bill. Using a specifically designed and efficient compressed air piping system can reduce a plant’s energy bill by 30 -60%. Transair, manufactured by Parker Hannifin, is a quick connection aluminum piping solution for compressed air, vacuum, and inert gas applications. Transair’s innovative technology, available in ½” to 6” , offers significant savings on installation, maintenance and operating costs when compared to traditional pipe. Versatility Due to its reusable connection technology, Transair is the only pipe system with the ability to quickly install and adapt. The connection is simply screwed or bolted together. Transair can be reconfigured without compromising the system. Superior Air Quality Transair is guaranteed to be absent of corrosion and meets all the requirements of ISO 8573 air quality certification. Transair is guaranteed leak-free due to its unique sealing characteristics and “full bore” design. The airtight components and the low friction coefficient of aluminum ensure optimal air pressure throughout any compressed air system. Transair is an environmentally sustainable and responsible product. The materials used to produce Transair pipe and fittings are 100% recyclable, guaranteed silcone free and contains 60% post-consumer recycled content to meet the requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification credits. Eco-friendly Product Design Enhanced Safety Reduced Installation Costs Fast to install and easy to modify, Transair is the most versatile compressed air piping system available. Labor account for only 20% of the installation cost compared Quick instant connections eliminate the need to thread or solder pipe, therefore eliminating the risk that comes with the use of flames. The quick connect technology eliminates the concern regarding dropping loose parts creating the opportunity for injuries and lost work time. The lightweight aluminum pipe makes it easy to handle within any facility. | 480.830.7764 | input #42 at
