Extreme safety. The PE pipe system is made of a ductile plastic tested to pass tough California OSHA standards for compressed air applications. Unlike other plastics that may shatter, PE pipe simply ruptures at extreme pressures (797 psi during CAL OSHA testing). Even when exposed to pressures exceeding 460 psi for 1000 hours, or when struck by blunt objects at normal operating pressures, PE pipe maintains its integrity and does not shatter. Unlike PVC - which was never designed for compressed air applications - PE (Polyethylene) Systems were designed for compressed air applications, offering high performance and safety.

Additional Information N/A Dramatically higher flow rate than any other system - the smooth inside walls of PE pipe typically flow 25 - 30% better than competing pipe systems. This means you have the air you need, where and when you need it.

PE pipe "insulates" your air supply from ambient air much like insulation in a cooler - this means that transfer of temperature that causes condensation to form is substantially reduced allowing you to reduce airborne moisture at all times to your points of use:
  • Lower labor costs offer substantial savings
  • Pipe threading equipment not required
  • Pitting and corrosion does not occur
  • Smooth surface allows for higher flows and less resistance
  • Prevents contamination, which is prevalent in metal pipe systems
  • Corrosion resistance - unaffected by synthetic and mineral oils used in compressors
  • Lower material and installation costs
