Transair® stainless steel pipe is supplied “ready for use”. No particular preparation (cutting, deburring, chamfering, etc.) is required. Thanks to the rigidity of Transair® stainless steel pipe, temperature-related expansion / contraction phenomena are reduced to a minimum. The Transair® network retains its straightness, and hence its performance, over time (reduction of pressure drop caused by surface friction). Transair® stainless steel pipe is calibrated and fits perfectly onto all Transair® components. Each connection is automatically secured and sealing is, thus, optimized. The use of Transair® stainless steel pipe minimises corrosion.

When maintaining or modifying a Transair® system, the relevant section should be purged prior to the commencement of any work. Installers should only use Transair® components and accessories. The technical properties of the Transair® components must be respected.

Pressurizing the System
Once the Transair® installation has been installed and prior to pressurizing, the installer should complete all tests, inspections and compliance checks as stated in any contract and according to sound engineering practice and current local regulations.

Transair® Pipe and Hoses
Transair® pipe should be protected from mechanical impact, particularly if exposed to potential collision with fork-lift trucks or when sited in an environment with moving overhead loads. Similarly, rotation of the pipe and pipe supports should be avoided. Transair® pipe must not be welded.

Component assembly
Transair® components are provided with assembly instructions for their correct use - simply follow the methods and recommendations stated in this document or separate data sheets.

Transair® Installations - Situations to Avoid
■ Installation within a solid mass (concrete, foam, etc.)
■ The hanging of any external equipment to Transair® pipe
■ The use of Transair® for grounding, or as a support for electrical equipment
■ Exposure to chemicals that are incompatible
with Transair® components (please contact mdi for further details)
■ Use of components not approved by Transair®

Sound engineering practice for the optimization of an air pipe system
■ When installing a Transair® system, the work should be performed in accordance with good engineering practice.
■ Bends and bypasses represent sources of pressure drop.
■ Keep in-line pipe diameter reductions to a minimum.
■ Maintain a consistent level of good quality air by use of adequate filtration at the compressor outlet.
■ The diameter of the pipe will influence pressure drop and the operation of point-of-use equipment. Select the diameter according to the required flow rate and acceptable pressure drop at the point of use.
■ Position drops should be as close as possible to the point of use.
■ Never encase the network in a hard solid mass, in order to facilitate maintenance or servicing.
■ To insulate Transair® industrial water systems thermally, we recommend insulating the Transair® stainless steel pipes.

Quick Connection Technology

Transair’s® innovative technology enables rapid and easy assembly with quick connection of components to the stainless steel pipe. This technology takes into account the specific requirements of each diameter and provides the user with an optimum safety coefficient and easy connection.

Ø 3/4"(22mm) – 1"(28mm)

Pipe-to-pipe and stud connectors in Ø22 and Ø28 can be immediately connected to Transair® stainless steel -pipe – simply push the pipe into the connector up to the connection mark. The gripping ring of each fitting is then automatically secured and the connection is safe.

Ø 1 1/2" (42mm) – 2" (60mm)

Pipe-to-pipe and stud connectors in Ø42 and Ø60 can be quickly connected to Transair® stainless steel pipe by means of a double clamp ring. This secures the connection between the nut and the pipe – tightening of the nuts secures the final assembly.

Ø 3"(76mm) – Ø 4"(101mm)

Pipe-to-pipe and stud connectors in Ø76 and Ø101 can be quickly connected to Transair® stainless steel pipe. Position the pipes to be connected within the Transair® cartridge and close/tighten the Transair® clamp.
