Ringmain drawing

Knowing exactly what kind and size of compressed air ringmain is needed is not always easy.

There are many considerations to take into account when designing a ringmain:

  • system dimensions
  • desired flow rates and pressures at each workstation
  • manifold diameter required to avoid creating pressure losses along the ringmain
  • the best material for the application (ALR or PVR ringmains)


Once these considerations have been addressed, the workstations must be fitted with equipment or supply lines depending on their purpose:

  • single or double wall fasteners with couplers for blowing or inflation
  • filters for paint, FRLs for pneumatic tools
  • etc...
 

Prevost's in-house team analyses your needs, provides you with advice and calculates the cost of your ringmain.

This service is split into three parts:

  1. A general diagram of your compressed air ring main complete with downpipes is drawn so that you can see the location and layout of your system in your building.
  2. A detailed drawing identifying the connections and purposes of each downpipe is then generated.
  3. A complete quote listing each item, the corresponding quantities, and the price of the proposed ringmain is provided for your consideration.

The advantage of this system is that you have both a comprehensive and detailed view of your project.
