ATLAS Copco Compressors has introduced a modular piping system called the AIRnet. The system is made from a robust lightweight aluminium tube and has been designed to ensure minimum pressure drop for maximum energy savings, says Atlas Copco.
With a large selection of fittings, the AIRnet can be used to extend existing pipe work systems or to supply complete installation solutions. Pipe identification is made easy with a blue coloured pipe for compressed air and a green pipe for nitrogen.
The non-corrosive properties of AIRnet maintain a constant air quality from the compressor room to the production equipment.
The AIRnet system offers a range of powder-coated aluminium pipe, engineered polymer and aluminium fittings, with associated assembly tools to cover the nominal pipe sizes from 20 to 80 mm or the equivalent ¾ inch to 3½ inch nominal pipe sizes.
AIRnet is compatible with most types of compressor oils and can be submitted to a working temperature from -20°C up to +70°C, and pressures up to 13 bar.
