How to transition from Teseo HBS to Teseo AP August 31, 2018 13:44

Whether you're extending an existing Teseo HBS (Hollow Bar System) system into a new Teseo AP (Aluminium Pipework) system or simply adding a drop to low level, transitioning from Teseo HBS to Teseo AP is straightforward. 

This is a common modification to Teseo Pipework systems as installation is quicker and easier than ever with Teseo AP due to the lightweight design of pipe and easy to use fittings.

Below you can see an example of how a customer achieved this.
 
It is best practice to use a ball valve to easily isolate air supply if needed. This has health and safety benefits as well as being able to modify the system in the future without significant downtime.

The use of compressed air is now commonplace in the workshops of hobbyists, craftsmen and small businesses.

Conventional compressed air systems, using traditional methods and materials for distributing compressed air around the workplace can be clumsy and unsafe.

Trailing hoses can cause damage and create trip hazards, which can be overcome by using a Teseo AP Kit to provide a quick, easy and affordable way to update your installation.

Teseo modular aluminum pipework is straightforward to assemble without special tools providing you have the right skills and work safely.

The double o-ring design provides for leak free pipework with a minimum number of components and all of tasks normally associated with pipework installation whether cutting to length, adding connections and take-offs or threaded BSP terminals are easily accomplished.

Brackets can be mounted direct onto walls, unistrut frame, or hung from high level; again installation is straightforward.

There are a number of ways to provide outlets and numerous types of connections, making the addition of take-offs a simple process. The Teseo AP Kit can be extended and modified with ease.

Change of direction is achieved using elbows or tees, and all fittings are leak free and secure when installed correctly.

Materials of construction are metallic, lightweight, corrosion resistant and durable.

Outlets can be positioned precisely where needed, allowing convenient point to point connection of tools and equipment, close to the application.

Teseo AP Kit is the best practice approach to compressed air pipework, previously out of reach for hobbyists, craftsmen and artisan businesses.

Available ex-stock as a standard package or bespoke specification, and delivered in a convenient box format.

Transform your installation with a customisable AP Kit, a truly industrial system which can be adapted and applied to a range of workplace applications.

Aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, durable and infinitely flexible. Teseo AP Kit, distributed exclusively in the UK by D Cole Solutions. The simple solution to trailing hoses.

Compressed air safety! March 19, 2016 14:04

Mr Airhead

We’ll be using our Mr Airhead character from time-to-time to make our readers aware of best practice use of compressed air, innovations and product developments. 

The safe use of compressed air is a good place to start. It is often said that compressed air is a source of safe and reliable power.

We endorse that view with the caveat that the risks associated with the use of compressed air need to be understood and subject to the application of sound engineering practice.

If you behave like an airhead you can expect to get hurt or cause harm to others. Please don’t do it; use compressed air, air tools, and air operated equipment for their intended purpose as advised by the product manufacturers.

Don’t just take our word for it…. follow the link below and see what British Compressed Air Society have to say on the subject of working safely with compressed air.
