Maximizing ROI: How to Determine When to Upgrade to Aluminum Compressed Air Piping

When should you consider replacing your aging iron distribution piping? Should you stick with the status quo or consider switching to aluminum pipes? While black iron piping is a common choice for compressed air distribution, this type of piping doesn’t last forever. Working with an aging distribution system could be costing you more than you […]

Why It’s Important to Monitor Compressed Air Quality

A compressed air system is only as good as its air supply. Many of the best designed systems are rendered significantly less efficient and powerful, simply because of low quality air supply. What’s more, low quality compressed air can ruin products and jeopardize safety standards in facilities under strict safety guidelines. However, ensuring high quality […]

Using Data to Improve Your Industrial Compressed Air System

Compressed air technology is taking rapid strides with each passing year. From efficiency-boosting flow measurement to sophisticated but sturdy dew point sensors, the quantity of possibilities present in this new tech is incredible. At Airtec, we strive to continually seek the best products and practices for compressed air systems today, and within the world of […]

Dew Point Sensors: A Valuable Application for Compressed Air Technology

Dew point monitoring is among the most important steps you can take when caring for your compressed air technology. If the dew point isn’t where it should, moisture will accumulate in your compressed air system, resulting in pipe corrosion, reduced lifespan for pneumatic parts, and even unscheduled downtime. Fortunately, thanks to massive leaps in compressed […]
