Compressed air is an important medium that is vital in virtually every manufacturing process. However, it must be clean and supplied without losses to the individual workplaces, otherwise it can prove expensive. It is therefore also worth considering quality when selecting a compressed-air distribution system. With Transair® by Parker-Legris, the air remains clean.
Compressed air is the breath of industrial production. If it becomes contaminated in any way or if the pressure reduces at a critical moment, this has a direct effect on productivity. Plant downtimes can even occur as a result of this. A typical risk factor is, for example, dirt particles, which are aspirated from the ambient air by the compressor and lead to contamination of workpieces and tools in the workplace. Corrosion in pipes and connections also proves to be an adversary of clean compressed air. Cheap systems can already show signs of damage as a result of corrosion after only a few years.
The acquisition of a compressed-air pipe system is therefore an investment that should be made with a strong focus on quality. In this case, the better long-term solution, including in terms of costs, is a sensible decision. The Transair® system by our technology partner Parker-Legris stands for absolute air-tightness and sustainability. The pipes are made from aluminium or stainless steel, depending on their area of use. The ingenious design of the connectors and fittings ensures that not a single millilitre of air can escape from these critical contact points. As there are no narrowed areas in the entire system and the inside of the pipes have a smooth surface, free flow is ensured. This saves energy.
However, the area of application of the system extends far beyond conveying compressed air: Transair® is also a safe solution for a vacuum from 10 mbar and inert gases such as nitrogen, argon and CO2 with a purity of up to 99.99%.
The Transair® compressed-air pipe system has over 20 years of experience under its belt. It is not only suitable for new installations but it also brings changes to manufacturing processes. Thanks to its assembly-friendly design, it can be assembled in only a short time. In the case of expansions, production can continue without interruption.
You can rely on Bachofen, even if the installation is urgent: We deliver the entire Transair® range from the warehouse and support you in implementing a solution that has been individually adapted to the process and the further general conditions.
