Connection Technology

AIRpipe, the fourth-generation of pipe connection design uses pipe clamps, surface sealing ring and convex pipe as whole parts, which achieves a quick fit with very good sealing. Compared to an O-type sealing ring, this AIRpipe fourth-generation of sealing ring upgrades to surface contact sealing: performance is more reliable and life time is doubled compared to line type sealing.

  • metal clamshell union connector, quick install & re-assembly,
  • grab ring with surface contact, no shrinking on inner diameter,
  • surface contact, active concentric sealing, leak free,
  • superior reliability & longevity, 20 years’ lifespan.

Lugged Ring Clamping Style Connection – DN 63-200mm

  • metal clamshell union connector, quick install & re-assembly,
  • convex ring, no shrinking on inner diameter,
  • surface contact, active concentric sealing, leak free,
  • superior reliability & longevity, 20 years’ lifespan.

Customer benefits

AIRpipe, the full performance compressed air pipe system is a complete, high quality ring main solution, combining flexibility with efficiency for quick and easy installations.

Quick & Easy to install

  • no detailed technical training required,
  • the pipe and the joints can be assembled quickly without any preparation; no welding, gluing or crimping needed,
  • lightweight, easy to cut pipes: easy to handle on site.

AIRpipe fittings : A Flexible Solution

  • AIRpipe fittings can be disconnected and re-used,
  • quick drops can be added at any time, adapting to changes in the production line,
  • as the connections are made from the side, the risk of condensate waste is eradicated,
  • high quality Terminal Wall Connector complete with manual drain and twin outlet connection,
  • AIRpipe’s extensive range of pipe and fittings enables a bespoke compressed air system to be built which can meet specific production needs.

Durable & Resistant: Low Pressure Drop

  • high quality, smooth inner surface will never rust. It ensures a constant flow of clean compressed air and guarantees safety at the point of use,
  • the high performance sealing system ensures a leak free seal,
  • low friction inner surface eliminates airflow restriction, reducing the pressure drop and saving energy,
  • AIRpipe is corrosion, vibration and heat resistant; the air quality is preserved throughout the whole system up to the point of use, protecting the downstream equipment and the manufacturing process.

Seamless Compatibility

  • AIRpipe can connect seamlessly to the female thread, male thread and flange joints,
  • full-flow design on the valve allows quick installation and saves energy.
