Compressed Air Piping

Pneumsys energy offer Compressed Air Piping solutions using fittings from John Guest and Eqo Fluids in India. The compressed air piping fittings system is used for the distribution of compressed air to the required point of use. It is a fairly designed system that helps in energy cost reduction and increase in production efficiency. Pneumsysenergy compressed air system is quick and easy to install and is used in various commercial and industrial facilities. Their smooth inner surfaces produces good air flow, energy savings and give optimum performance under pressure.

Earlier, PVC was used for compressed air piping. It was not long before the fact that it sometimes “shattered” and failed, sending sharp pieces throughout the area. It becomes brittle over time and is not safe, can explode. It is not recommended for pressure. New products called aluminium air pipe were introduced that utilized material that did not shatter to solved safety issue.

Overall, the compressed air industry has not accepted any type of "plastic" pipe as appropriate and safe for down-stream compressed air. Also, Steel Pipe - in compressed air systems will corrode when exposed to condensate (H2O) and thus become a major source of contamination to the whole system. Pneumsysenergy Compressed Air Piping solutions provide non-corrosive and contamination free working process.

The internal corrosion issue is much more significant with oil- free air than with lubricated compressors. Stainless steel is often lighter for the same pressure temperature rating and installs well when welded. Threaded stainless steel often tends to leak. Other piping has higher installation time, required skilled labour in fabrication for joining or welding / soldering / gluing like difficult and time consuming process. Leakage is also one of major problem detected in such piping comparative to Pneumsysenergy Compressed Air Piping solutions. The corrosive skin protects aluminium pipes form most hazardous chemicals, many acids, moistures and weather conditions.

Aluminium compressed air pipe as applied today has become very popular. Pneumsysenergy Compressed Air Piping solutions provide high plant efficiency at low installation & maintenance cost due to its main characteristics like lighter weight, easier to handle, low labour cost, no leakage and easy to installed with no special tools required such as welders, cutting, threaders, etc.

This has been developed not only to provide smooth (low pressure loss due to friction) inner surface and eliminate "self contamination," but also to offer enhanced flexibility to meet the ever-changing compressed air distribution needs. This is particularly desirable in the automotive support industry with changing assembly and sub-assembly areas.

The John Guest push-in-fittings ranges from 4 mm to 32 mm and are ideal for connecting compressor receiver to air line service components through complete main ring and take off points. We do not need to prepare threaded pipes or solvents and all the Pneumsysenergy compressed air piping connections can be made with just a simple push-in action. For higher compressed air piping sizes, we are using Eqo Fluids fittings from 20 mm to 160 mm size. The aluminium pipes used are of thicker gauge than regular pipes. The Eqo fluids make High pressure fittings that are suitable to run at 70 bar operating pressure and have a burst pressure of 270 bar.

Pneumsysenergy Compressed Air pipe fittings include Aluminium pipe (Compressed air / vacuum / inert gases) and PEX Pipe (Compressed air / vacuum / inert gases / cold water / pure water / food grade media / oil / weak acids / alkalis). We also offer special fittings for hot water / tea / coffee / high temperature media. JG Speed-fit pipe fittings require no threading / brazing / soldering or using clumsy sealing or gluing / blinding compounds. The cold drawn thin walled aluminium pipes are used while compressed air piping instead of thick walled plain extruded pipes.

Advantages of cold drawn thin walled aluminium pipes

Cold drawn process is the metal forming process where an extruded pipe is forced through a single or series of dies, thus reducing the cross section size of the original part. The cold drawing process yields a dimensional consistency in the final product, while improving both yield and tensile strength by almost 1.5 times.

The other advantages are:

  • Better Strength To Withstand Pressure :

    Cold drawn pipes are able to withstand as much pressure as the standard thicker extruded pipes of the same outer diameter, reason being that there are less chances of leakage in cold drawn pipes as these are having better tensile strength and hardness compared to an extruded pipe.

  • Reduced Thickness Does Not Mean A Weaker Pipe :
    Cold drawing pipes helps in material savings and cost reductions by using a pipe of lesser thickness than the extruded pipe. With increased tensile strength, the pipe is able to withstand better impact strength and does not get damaged even is thrown from a height.

  • Better Dimensional Accuracy :
    The extruded pipes are substantially oval and have varied pipe thickness whereas the cold drawing pipes imparts uniform thickness and have almost a perfect curvature to the pipe which results in very less chances of leakage in the joints when assembled on to the pipe.
