The Transair® Advantage

Your compressed air distribution piping is your means for transporting compressed air and represents your link between supply, storage, and demand. Furthermore, compressed air represents one of the largest opportunities for immediate energy savings. A properly designed compressed air system typically saves a plant 20% to 50% of its electric bill, sometimes even up to 60% within 24 months.

Transair® pipes are manufactured from extruded aluminum, providing a durable, lightweight alternative to iron, steel, copper, and plastic. Transair® aluminum pipe provides the combination of the smooth bore interior and the natural corrosion resistance of aluminum. Different from iron, steel, and copper, which can diminish your airflow through pitting and buildup over time, Transair aluminum pipes will maintain their pristine interior and keep your air flowing smoothly, reducing the costs associated with strain on your system.

While plastic piping may be equally resistant to corrosion, its brittle nature can prove dangerous to your personnel if ruptured by an accidental impact, and OSHA has regulated against its use for compressed air in many states. Due to its strength and corrosion resistance, aluminum is the best material choice.

With over 1,000,000 installations in the USA, Transair® is the unquestioned leader in compressed air systems. Transair® is the only Aluminum Pipe System that meets ASME certification and it's the only product with true push-to-connect fittings.

Transair® Fast Installations and Easy to Modify

Transair® components are reusable and interchangeable, which enables immediate and easy layout modifications.

Parker Hannifin, the pioneer in compressed air aluminum piping systems, builds on its history of innovation by manufacturing the largest range of diameters and products through its Transair® line. With 20 years of experience, breadth of offering, and superior operational efficiency has made Transair® the trusted brand of mechanical contractors.

The lightweight components and quick-connect interlocking design allow for easy and immediate layout modifications with zero need to thread, solder, or glue pipe. Labor accounts for only 20% of installation costs, compared to the 50-80% of such costs associated with traditional steel or black iron compressed air piping. While traditional products often corrode and degrade over time, Transair aluminum piping consistently provides clean, quality air though its leak-free, corrosion-resistant design, ensuring longevity of the equipment.

Transair® significantly reduces plant energy costs by increasing efficiency, reducing pressure drops, and eliminating leaks. Transair® compressed air piping integrates into existing copper and steel piping systems without compromising performance, making it perfect for upgrades or expansion projects.

Transair® aluminum pipe comes standard with a Qualicoat certified coating, making it ideal of all compressed air, inert gas, and vaccum applications in harsh environments.
