Air Compressor Pipings & Fittings
Acquiring an air compressor involves more than just the unit. Something has to connect it throughout your facility, and no one does that better or more reliably than we do.
The Ingersoll Rand SimplAir Piping System distributes compressed air (and more) throughout your facility reliably and economically. Here’s how:
The biggest difference isn’t in the piping. It’s in the fittings. We employ metal constructed fittings (others use plastic). Our metal fittings are far more reliable than plastic, and they last longer- saving you money in the long run.
As for the pipes themselves, there’s really no comparison. Starting with the interior surface of the pipes. Believe it or not, air travels more smoothly through our pipes. The internal barrel of the pipe is smooth, allowing a clear flow, and reducing “pressure drop” over long runs of pipe.
The coupling fittings (where the pipe meets the fittings) is designed like those used in sprinkler connections- it’s called a Victaulic Design and it’s built to resist leaks. Leaks, as you know, in an air compressor system can not only affect your pressure throughout your facility but it can cost you money as well, and small leaks can go undetected for a long time- and that can cost you a lot of money.
Plus, our pipes just look great, and aesthetics matters. They’re available in multiple colors (black, blue, green, gray) so our piping system can be used to move and identify multiple gases moving throughout your facility, and some fluids (check with us to see which liquids we can facilitate.)
Best of all, we can install an entire system quickly, limiting the amount of downtime you’ll face.
If you’re looking to refit your facility or acquire a new compressor and all the pipes and fittings, or if you just have questions, make sure you ask our experts about the SimplAir Piping System.
