Simple Installation

With Transair Piping, labor accounts for 20 percent of the cost of installing a Transair aluminum piping system. By comparison, labor accounts for 60 to 80 percent of a steel system, 50 to 70 percent of a copper system and 40 to 60 percent of a plastic system.
Legris Transair
The materials and modular design of Transair aluminum pipe makes it easier and less expensive to install than traditional systems. For example, aluminum piping is easier to handle than standard steel piping, and its push-to-connect fittings secure connections with a simple push and twist.

The fittings eliminate the need for skilled pipe fitters, expensive and heavy tools, pipe preparation, and pipe threading. They also eliminate the time needed for soldering and glue drying. Once the pipe is pushed into the fitting, the connection is secure and ready to be pressurized.

Labor accounts for only 20 percent of the cost of installing a Transair Aluminum Piping System. By comparison, labor accounts for 60 to 80 percent of a steel system, 50 to 70 percent of a copper system and 40 to 60 percent of a plastic system.

The materials and modular design of the Transair aluminum pipe system makes it easier and less expensive to install than traditional products. For example, aluminum piping is easier to handle than standard steel piping, and its push-to-connect fittings secure connections with a simple push and twist. The fittings eliminate the need for skilled pipe fitters, expensive and heavy tools, pipe preparation, and pipe threading. They also eliminate the time needed for soldering and glue drying. Once the pipe is pushed into the fitting, the connection is secure and ready to be pressurized.

Layout flexibility

Successful operations need to be able to take advantage of new equipment options and automation techniques without incurring lengthy downtime and expense. Consequently, the ability to reconfigure production layouts or implement process changes quickly is critical. Transair aluminum pipe system makes reconfiguration practical and efficient. Simply rotate the fitting nut 360 degrees and pull the pipe from the fitting and reconfigure!

Since the fittings are not soldered or glued, components are reusable, and can be removed then reinstalled. The modular design and handling ease enables plant personnel to implement many layout changes within minutes, instead of hours. This minimizes downtime and increases plant productivity.

Energy savings

Energy costs associated with a compressed air system are significant. For example, when analyzed over a ten-year period, the cost of energy consumed by an average compressed air system exceeded other costs, including the initial cost of equipment and installation. The cost of electric may exceed the cost of the capital equipment, each year!

System pressure drops are one cause of inefficient energy use. A 14.5 psi pressure drop uses 10 percent additional energy. These drops can result from a number of sources, including poor system configuration, interior pipe surface corrosion, and compressed air contamination.

bullet System configuration - Poor system configuration can lead to improper airflow. The flexible hose used in Transair aluminum piping system eliminates many of the layout constraints encountered with rigid piping systems. It accommodates physical obstacles and provides a link between the compressor and piping.
bullet Corrosion - Interior pipe corrosion is a common cause of pressure drops and higher maintenance costs. Smooth bore piping, such as plastic and aluminum, resist corrosion. Galvanized and black iron pipe decreases in opening over time. Galvanized and black iron fittings are crudely designed with restrictions to air flow internally. Brass and copper fittings and valves typically have smaller bores than the associated pipe size. Transair pipe will not corrode and the fittings are ALL designed for compressed air flow with full bore construction.
bullet Durable protection of equipment Transair® enables elimination of the problem of rust, usually associated with steel air pipe systems. It guarantees the complete absence of corrosion (self protection by formation of aluminum oxide). The inner surface of aluminum pipe ensures good and constant quality clean air continuously.

Legris Transair® also protects industrial equipment against water deterioration thanks to its quick assembly brackets with integral upward loop.

Compressing ambient air to the discharge pressure introduces moisture into supplied air. Unfortunately, aftercoolers, filters, and dryers do not completely eliminate moisture and its destructive results. As a result, steel pipe systems will begin to rust and corrode, thereby inhibiting smooth airflow and reducing system pressure.

Pipe corrosion also increases compressed air system maintenance. Steel pipe systems need to be dismantled and inspected to monitor corrosion build up. Not only does replacing corroded pipe interfere with production, it causes rust, corrosion and other particles to be released into the air system, thereby causing instrument, valve, tool and machine operation problems or damage with the resultant downtime.

bullet Air contamination - Air cleanliness is another factor that affects consistent airflow. Dirt and dust particles passing through the piping system are gradually deposited on the interior surface of piping. As these deposits accumulate, friction increases and system pressure decreases. Black iron and galvanized steel piping systems are more prone to build-up than stainless steel. Meanwhile, smooth bore piping materials, such as Transair aluminum pipe, offer more resistance to deposit build-ups.
bullet Air leaks - Inherent in threaded steel piping systems, non productive leaks also waste compressed air, thus electrical energy and your dollars. Difficult to trace and repair, they can have a huge impact on operating budgets. A typical threaded compressed air system leaks 35% of its volume, that’s one third of the electrical bill associated with compressed air! With its bubble-tight seals, Transair aluminum piping system offers virtually leak-free performance. Legris Transair guarantees the Transair pipe system to be free of leaks for two (2) years. The Transair aluminum pipe and push to connect fittings will eliminate compressed air leaks and lower your electrical costs associated with the production of compressed air.

Improving productivity while reducing operating costs is a goal shared by nearly every manufacturing plant. Compressed air is considered the phantom utility. You cannot buy it, you must produce it. The initial capital cost of a compressed air system is minor compared to the operational coast. A Transair aluminum and stainless steel pipe system will significantly reduce your operational cost! Transair can help make your goals of reduced electrical costs a reality.
