Compressed Air

"Plastic compressed air piping will not corrode and gives better flow rates"

Corrosion and scaling are common problems with traditional compressed air piping systems. It causes contamination and reduces flow, requiring increased energy to deliver constant pressure.

AGRUAIR is a unique system which will not corrode and provides high impact strength.

Manufactured from blue coloured PE100, the system is lightweight, easy to handle, and installation is simple and secure using standard socket fusion welding. The material is resistant to all common compressor lubricating oils as well as a wide range of chemicals and corrosive products found in factory environments. The clean nature of the piping also makes it suitable for areas where purity is important, such as in foodstuffs or pharmaceutical production.

Installed in a fraction of the time of metal systems, AGRUAIR can solve many of the problems usually associated with compressed air handling.

Air-Line Xtra is a lightweight corrosive resistant compressed air piping system from Aliaxis.

Manufactured from a specially formulated ABS blend, Air-Line Xtra pipe has a high performance co-extruded liner which greatly enhances its mechanical and chemical properties. Air-Line Xtra fittings are manufactured using an alloy blend of ABS which ensures optimum performance of the complete system.
