What materials should you use for compressed air piping?

June, 18 2020

Compressed air piping is essential for your compressed air system to operate – without compressed air piping, there’s no way for compressed air to get to where it needs to. Piping that’s inefficient for the job at hand or faulty could result in lost pressure, contamination and wasted power so it’s important to make sure that the piping you’re using is suitable for your factory or plant.

If you’re needing to install a new compressed air system or perhaps overhaul what you already have then it’s important to make sure that all components of your compressed air system are in correct working order – and that includes the piping that you use!

Maintaining the efficiency of a compressed air system is a constant battle, with leaks, lost efficiency, oil or water ingress and increasing power bills being a considerable source of the problem. 

Compressed air systems consume 10% to 15% of all industrial electricity. And yet, compressed air is an inefficient form of energy – 90% of the input energy used is discharged as waste heat. This is not only costly from a sustainability standpoint – wasting energy means wasting money. Over a 10-year period, electricity costs make up 76% of a factory’s operating costs. In many cases, the electricity used by a compressed air system in a factory makes up the largest percentage of an increasingly expensive electricity bill.
