Aluminum Air Pipe Compressed Air Systems

What Type of Piping Do I Need for A Compressed Air System?

Traditionally, engineers have specified a variety of piping materials for compressed air systems, including black iron, galvanized steel, copper, stainless steel and even plastic. More recently, aluminum piping has become an option considered better by many contractors, architects and engineering firms. Aluminum piping makes sense for compressed air systems in many different applications.

There are many advantages to using aluminum piping, including:

  • Lower costs – While stainless steel is commonly used for compressed air systems, it can be costly to install. Aluminum piping can save money and is easier to install than stainless steel.

  • Minimizing leaks – Thread connections on stainless steel pipes are likely to leak at some point. This will cause the system to work harder and increase costs. Aluminum does not require threading and soldering and is less likely to leak.

  • No Corrosion – Even with a moisture trap, stainless steel pipes can rust from the inside out. Aluminum piping does not corrode, so you will not have to worry about rust or obstructions.

  • High Performance – While there are other materials, such as copper, that are better options than stainless steel, aluminum outperforms them all.

When making the choice of material for your compressed air system, consider aluminum piping as a more cost-effective and reliable option.
