Prevost Piping System compressed air network 100% aluminum

The 100% aluminum concept

The PREVOST PIPING SYSTEM pipes and fittings are 100% aluminum, compact, lightweight and professional strength.

They can be installed easily and quickly for immediate pressurisation.

Prevost: An expertise recognized by ASME

As a manufacturer of pipe fittings and subassemblies for compressed air and pressurized fluids systems, Prevost obtained the ASME QPS (Quality Program for Suppliers) General Industry certification. Consequently, our PPS products are guaranteed 10 years.

The PREVOST PIPING SYSTEM range ensures:

  • clean, high quality air at all times
  • a sealed system
  • an optimized flow rate
  • an operating pressure range from -14.21 psi to + 232 psi
  • a temperature range from - 4°F to + 176°F

Workstations are well supplied, accessible and ergonomically designed. The facility is durable and can be easily upgraded.

Benefits of a PREVOST PIPING SYSTEM

  • Compact and lightweight
    The 100% aluminum composition of the PPS range creates a system that is compact, lightweight and durable.
  • High tech, modern material
    Aluminum alloy, combined with external electrostatic paint and internal treatments all protect the pipe against the oxidation and corrosion.
  • 100% customizable
    The wide range of sizes and fittings allows the system for modular and scalable construction.
  • Easy and quick to assemble
    Simply insert the pipe into the PPS fitting then tighten the nut.
  • Leak free with minimal pressure loss
    The "PPS Grip Concept" creates a secure, leak free connection. The smooth internal surface generates a laminar flow, a low friction coefficient and a maximum flow diameter which are all factors to reduce pressure loss.
  • Compatible with compressor oils
    Aluminum and viton seals are compatible with compressor lubricants.
  • Tough material
    Aluminum guarantees long term performance: mechanical strength, pressure resistance and shocks absorbent

The PPS Grip Concept

The pipe is locked into the fitting with a stainless steel ring of teeth which penetrates the aluminum.

The double-lobed, lubricated seal guarantees a secure connection and provides optimum results even in the harshest working conditions.

CC CONCEPT: COMPACT CONNEXION CONCEPT

Compact solution for directly connecting two fittings, optimizing space and creating installations suitable for "compressor" rooms.

  • Compact
    Save space in your installation by optizising space.
  • Quick
    The CC Concept allows two fittings to be connected directly.
  • Modular
    Create specific installations adapted to all "compressor rooms".
