The Henco piping system can also be used for compressed air. Compressed air is considered the fourth utility, next to gas, water and electricity. Compressed air is used for instance to power motors, machines and tools, to clean parts, to inflate tyres.
Compressed air is produced by a compressor. Depending on the type of compressor, oil particles may end up in the compressed air. For most applications, these oil particles are removed in a straightforward manner. The Henco piping system can only be applied in installations that are free of oil or equipped with an upstream oil filter.
