Step 5. Pipework Distribution
The distribution of the compressed air is an important part of the system design, an incorrect sized pipework system will cause pressure drop and air starvation at point of use, most system are installed in a loop style ringmain to give equal pressure throughout the air system. Pressure drop is very common in poorly designed systems this can be avoided by correctly sizing the pipework and ancillary components such as in line filters, the material of the pipework system can greatly improve any pressure drop, the tradition robust galvanised steel pipework can be very inefficient due to friction from the rough inside of the pipework, a smooth bore system such as Transair can really improve air flow and save energy.
