Kaeser’s SmartPipe is a modular compressed air distribution system that offers both lower installation costs and lower long term operating costs.
Piping selection directly affects the three key elements of every compressed air system: flow, pressure, and air quality. Poor choices in pipe materials, diameter, and layout cause of increased energy consumption and underperforming air driven tools and equipment.
Choices in piping also directly impact installation costs. Heavier materials cause fatigue and slow work, especially in overhead installations. The types of fittings used must also be considered. Some connection types cause pressure drop, need special tools, and take more time to install.
