Tom Hewlett, Project Manager at Spirax Sarco, said
“We had previously relied on an old galvanised compressed air pipework system for all our factories’ maintenance and engineering processes. We knew we needed to replace this with a new system that was more state-of-the-art, flexible, easy to install and modify and capable of delivering higher flow rates. As we began the relocation and renovation work we considered this to be an ideal time to look at a replacing our old compressed air pipework system.
Direct Air pointed out that TESEO’s range was particularly lightweight, easy to install and modify, and that all joints were sealed by double ‘O’ rings, meaning the pipework was able to handle considerably higher flow rates than steel pipe work of an equivalent size. Direct Air also drew our attention to the fact that the TESEO modular system was more aesthetically appealing than most other pipework systems.”
Spirax Sarco now has TESEO compressed air pipework installed across all of its maintenance & engineering and research & development (R&D) facilities. Spirax Sarco uses compressed air to power various types of machinery – including manufacturing and engineering plant, test rigs and handguns – at around 8-bar pressure. The company also uses smaller bore TESEO pipework for the flow of Argon welding gas.
