Latest compressed-air technology for technical and mechanical industries
15 February 2017
Any time you have technical or mechanical problem – whether transporting fluids or compressed air, caring for individual products, manipulating awkward devices, protecting essential equipment, totally overhauling your product benches or assembly lines – go to the Teseo engineering shelf and watch the problem resolve before you.
This modular multipurpose fluid/air pipework is for those of you who want to resolve everyday difficulties that business, educational institutions and all forms of industry encounter on a daily basis.
- Aluminium pipework
Aluminium pipework does not leak and therefore reduces energy costs year after year. In a recent survey throughout Europe, it was found that air leaks accounted for 16% of energy losses. Leak prevention saves more energy than all the other energy saving methods put together including variable speed compressors.
You can easily relocate Teseo pipe-work to suit your factory/workshop alterations. In addition, you can add as many air outlets as you require – literally within minutes. There is no need for you to bring in outside contractors.
The air-line can be installed in position so you can select ‘take off’ points and connect up rubber hose at your leisure, saving time and money. If you manufacture machinery that requires modular manifolds for air vacuum or other fluids, then you should consider this breakthrough for your product.
Most companies only focus on investment costs, but rarely on operating costs. The operating costs of electricity in the average life of a compressed air system is 75% of the total costs. A correct compressed airline system will, on average, pay for the total compressor system between one and three years by air leak prevention. Too often, the selection of a compressed air system is made by management on price alone and little or no thought is given to energy losses.
Teseo aluminium pipework can be used for carrying/supplying nitrogen and other inert gases. It is tested to 56 bar (max working pressure 15 Bar) and is very pleasing to the eye. Of all the methods employed by industry to save energy in compressed-air production, the Teseo aluminium pipework is by far the most economical. You can email your CAD drawings direct to TESEO and they will complete them for you, at no charge.
- Power savings
Smooth bore combined with no air leaks delivers more than 30% more efficiency. According to a German research company, the widespread use of variable-speed air compressors throughout Europe would save an average of 4% energy. However, they also claim that a massive 16% would be saved if air leaks were eliminated.
- Flow meter
The ‘plug and play’ flow meter, an innovative device based on next-generation technology by VP Instruments, can detect critical parameters in TESEO’s fluid distribution systems. Unlike conventional solutions that require one sensor for each parameter, the ‘plug and play’ flow meter is one single device, capable of measuring three fundamental parameters such as flow rate, temperature and pressure.
Thanks to the specially designed and patented probe holder, the probe can be safely installed on any of Teseo’s compressed-air distribution systems, even under pressure, helping evaluate system performance, control and allocate costs in order to improve efficiency. The flow meter can also be an essential tool in air audits, helping you reduce wasted energy and money.
- Clean air
Clean air (no corrosion, etc) means more savings because you do not have to change filter elements and pneumatic valves as often.
Some of the companies that use Teseo include:
- Dell Computers McLaren Motorsport;
- Lotus B&D;
- Kingspan Ireland Rolex;
- Smurfit Kappa Farrell Brothers, Ardee;
- Renault Academy, Swords;
- Diageo of St James’ Gate.
In addition, Dell had most of its Limerick campus equipped with Teseo air-line. But when Dell, alas, moved to Poland, it insisted on Teseo being installed in its entire new campus.
