One of the most common questions we get asked about aluminium compressed air piping is what size air pipe is needed for our client’s system. Unfortunately, this isn’t a one size fits all industry. Some people have greater compressed air requirements than others and if you choose a pipe that is undersized, your system’s performance can suffer. To make things simple for you, you can use our compressed air pipe sizing chart to quickly determine the ideal size. Here’s how it works.
In a compressed air piping system, a reducing tee allows you to join the same size air pipe with an intersecting smaller pipe to form a T junction. Reducing tees are used to redirect the pipeline to a dropper which may be connected to a piece of equipment such as an air hose reel.
Clean DRY Energy efficient compressed air system reduces costs at Dorsogna
Infinity Pipe was recently installed in the new D’Orsogna facility in Melbourne. Infinity Aluminium Pipe was installed throughout the plant to distribute consistent leak-free compressed air to the new facility.
D’Orsogna came to Infinity Pipe Systems with concerns over air quality, pressure loss and electricity bills. Like most leading food and beverage wholesalers and manufacturers, their factory relies heavily on compressed air. In order to cater to the needs of their compressed air reliant operations, D’Orsogna required the implementation of a unique pneumatic network.
Infinity Pipe Systems was commissioned to design and supply a 700m system of ring mains, with 60 stainless steel droppers into meat processing rooms. The system also featured filtration packs and 200m of stainless steel pipe for CO2 and Nitrogen gasses.
The stainless steel droppers and pipes have extreme resistance to corrosion and oxidation and are used in the ‘High risk, High care’ area
This installation was directed by our business development manager, Dillon Smith. Dillon specialises in creating turnkey, compressed air systems that are tailor-made for the needs of Western Australian companies.
