Compressed Air Pipework

We supply and install a number of different types of compressed air pipework systems for customers. The system we use is dependent on a number of factors including the customers existing pipework, complexity and length of runs required as well as cost and required durability. We regularly fit traditional galvanised steel, copper and stainless steel systems. However, our preferred system is one of the latest extruded aluminium systems, TESEO. For new installations we usually recommend TESEO for price, ease of fitment and durability.

To find out a bit more about TESEO and the other types of compressed air pipework take a look at our short video


Teseo manufacture high quality, high efficiency aluminium pipework. Teseo is a high efficiency smooth bore extruded pipework system. It is leak free, lightweight and quick to install. Teseo is also easy to disassemble and modify as your requirements change. Teseo can even (in some cases) be modified whilst in use!

Teseo high efficiency pipework is available with a 10 year warranty against leakage when installed by an authorised fitter. Teseo pipework is available in a range of sizes and is suitable for compressed air, specialist gases and vacuum.

The Teseo system is ideal for many applications and since it has structural integrity and rigidity it can be used to create structural parts of machinery and equipment as well as supply compressed air to the equipment.

Pipework and system design

Having the latest smooth bore pipework is a good start point for an efficient and effective pipework system. But of equal importance is having a system that is designed and maintained properly.

‘The more air you want to use the bigger the pipe needs to be’

This sounds obvious but we commonly find huge amounts of air trying to get through very small ‘pinch points’ in a pipework system. A good rule of thumb is…

  • a 4kw compressor needs minimum 3/4″ pipework
  • an 11kw compressor needs minimum 1″ pipework
  • an 25kw compressor needs minimum 1 1/2″ pipework
  • a 55kw compressor needs minimum 2″ pipework

Note: if you have multiple compressors the pipework needs to be based on the total capacity of all the compressors combined.

We also try to always fit bigger pipework in the plant room particularly if you have multiple compressors.
