Air Piping For Your Building-

Do you have a need for compressed air piping in your commercial building or shop?  What about old air piping that has leaks and issues or has never worked right from the beginning?  Drake Mechanical can get it done right and get it done right the first time; from proper sizing for the tools being used, to the proper material for the application.  Whether underground or above ground we do it all.  If you need black threaded air pipe and fittings installed we have skilled professionals that can get that pipe threaded, hung properly and your air on so you can get back to doing what you do best.  If you need copper air piping installed for a cleaner application we can do that too.  From Breathing air piping in paint booths or just compressed air piping for your shop Drake Mechanical has you covered.  We can supply and install quick disconnects, filters and moisture removing devices such as compressed air dryers and automatic air compressor blow downs so that you don't have to worry about forgetting to drain the water out of your compressor tank and more.  Do you have underground piping that needs run from one building to another?  Drake Mechanical also installs Air Pro HDPE air piping that is a pretty neat product, it wont corrode on the inside or the outside and is the only HDPE approved for use on air piping, Air Pro HDPE air piping will stand up to weather, rocks and other issues that Steel piping will not.  Drake's has installed this kind of piping for customers like Seminis Seed in Nampa along with other customers and the Air Pro compressed air piping worked out really well for them.  In that application we used the Air Pro HDPE compressed air piping to install piping underground in between their buildings to save them from having to purchase additional compressors while feeding multiple buildings with compressed air.  What about air piping hose reels for a shop or maintenance bay?  Drake Mechanical can get your hose reels installed in the perfect locations so that you don't have to wind up air hoses by hand which in turn increases productivity, and keeps your hoses out of your way.  So if you are looking for heavy duty hose reels just give us a shout and we can help you figure it out.

Common Types of Compressed Air Piping:

There are many types of compressed air piping out there and Drake Mechanical can help you out with all of them.  The one type of air piping we see from time to time whether it is in a residential shop or a commercial facility is PVC air piping.  We will not install PVC compressed air piping and we would ask that you don't either.  PVC compressed air piping is extremely dangerous.  PVC gets brittle over time and if it is hit with a vehicle or other object can explode.  When PVC air piping explodes it turns into shrapnel that can cause serious injury or even death.  Please keep this in mind when considering your compressed air piping options.
