Is The Teseo AP Kit safe?

Compressed air is a source of safe and reliable power [reference British Compressed Air Society], if it is used and installed correctly; in the same way that electricity, gas & steam – the other utilities – are safe and reliable.  It is unusual to see users, in whatever circumstances, taking chances with their electricity or gas supply.
To be safe and reliable the risks associated with the use of compressed air need to be understood and subject to the application of sound engineering practice.  This is particularly so when transporting compressed air as leaking pipes and trailing hoses are hazards which can cause serious injury.

“Is AP Kit safe”? Yes, providing you have the correct skills, experience and work safely. 

How often should I bracket Teseo pipework?

Brackets should be placed every 2 to 3 metres of running pipe. 
Additional supports should be used when changing height or direction.
The AP Snap Clamp is an inexpensive and very reliable bracket when installed correctly.
For a safe and reliable system an extra bracket is always good practice. 

How do I connect the new Teseo pipework to my existing compressor?

A threaded bsp terminal of the correct size will usually be the best and most appropriate means of connection.
Please refer to our range of Pipe, Fittings & Extras

What is the maximum working pressure of a Teseo system?

The maximum operating pressure is 15 bar.
Please see page 2 of the Technical Characteristics 

Can I use Teseo pipework for fluids other than compressed air?
