Rennes, France, 27. March 2019 - The Transair® business unit of the Low Pressure Connectors Division Europe of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is bringing the next evolution in compressed air piping to customers with its new Condition Monitoring Technology, which allows end-users to monitor their compressed air piping systems and maintain productivity.
The Transair Condition Monitoring System utilises sophisticated wireless sensor technology to monitor a compressed air piping system, alert the end-user to system changes, and provide critical data that helps to reduce downtime and increase productivity.
A user-friendly web-based interface makes it easy for users to view and analyse data to ensure the system is running at optimum levels for pressure, power, temperature, humidity and flow. A clever 4-20mA wireless transmitter allows other equipment to be connected to the system to make their data available at the interface.
Monitoring this information allows the identification and addressing of performance issues before damage to expensive equipment occurs. The Transair Condition Monitoring System helps keep overall costs down by avoiding unnecessary downtime and prolonging the life of job-critical equipment.
“Being able to accurately monitor this data is critical for end-users, because compressed air systems are very complex and tend to expand over time,” said Guillaume Tétard, Transair Business Unit Manager. “Our state-of-the-art wireless solution enables operators to monitor their compressed air system 24 hours-a-day through a Web-based dashboard. Providing a quick snapshot plus a complete in-depth analysis of the demand of a compressed air system with fully customisable alerts forewarns plant personnel of any performance changes, allowing service technicians to address maintenance issues before they result in higher maintenance costs and unscheduled downtime.”
The Transair Condition Monitoring System augments Parker’s already popular Transair aluminium piping system. Known for its high-performance and effective use in a wide range of industries, Transair’s corrosion-resistant, guaranteed leak-free components and ‘full bore’ design make it ideal for use with compressed air, vacuum, and inert gas systems ensuring long-term, consistently clean, quality air.
“With Transair’s lightweight components and quick-connect interlocking design, labour is kept down to just 20% of overall installation costs, saving money from the start,” Françoise Lunel, Transair Communication Manager said. “Pairing a Transair system with the Transair Condition Monitoring System will further a company’s savings by helping to identify ways to increase air efficiency, decrease maintenance costs and prevent unwanted scrap, thus reducing a plant’s overall costs.”
