How To Transition From Teseo HBS Pipework To Teseo AP Pipework March 28, 2018 18:52

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 pipework to Teseo AP pipework 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 transitioned from Teseo HBS to Teseo AP. 
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.
