DanAm Airlines and Sata filtration

If you’re looking to build a new facility or add on or replace your existing airline system, you need to talk with Gipe Auto Color experts about DanAm Air’s aluminum compressed air pipe system. It’s quick to install and easy to modify. DanAm Air components are removable and interchangeable, which allows immediate and easy layout modifications. Unlike the performance of steel and copper, which degrades over time due to corrosion, DanAm Air provides clean air quality with optimum flow rate performance.

DanAm Air also offers significant savings on installation, maintenance and operating costs compared to traditional pipe. The quick, instant connections eliminate the need to thread, solder or glue pipe. Labor accounts for only 20 percent of the cost of installing DanAm Air, while labor accounts for 50 percent to 80 percent of the cost of installing steel or copper systems. DanAm Air’s aluminum pipe system significantly reduces your energy costs by increasing efficiency, reducing pressure drops, and eliminating leaks.

Available in 1⁄2-inch to 4-inch pipe sizes, the DanAm Air system features push-to-connect technology that secures connections with a simple push and provides a leak-free guarantee. The aluminum pipe eliminates corrosion, ensuring the longevity of equipment and helps to avoid frequent changes of filtration elements. DanAm Air can also be integrated into existing copper and steel piping without compromising performance, making it perfect for upgrades or expansion projects.

DanAm Air‘s benefits include:

  • Energy efficient
  • Push-to-connect technology
  • Removable and reusable
  • No corrosion
  • Full bore design
  • Lower install costs
  • Immediate pressurization
  • Modular design
  • Leak-free guarantee
  • 1/2″ – 4″ pipe sizes

Each pipe section is 20 feet long, and attaches to fittings such as elbows, tees, and unions through a triple-O-ring-sealed, push-to-connect joint.

Pair DanAm Air with SATA filtration for consistent refinishing results

With proper airline design and filtration, there is a constant, even pressure at a constant, high volume, which provides better color definition, better metallic/pearl orientation, and a more even film build for clearcoat, instead of bands of wet/dry/wet/dry clearcoat application.

The SATA 284 and 484 filters remove contaminants down to .01 microns, or 10 times most filter systems. Oil contamination, either through droplets or vapor, is especially problematic for waterborne basecoats, such as PPG’s Envirobase High Performance.

That oil contamination can cause blotchy metallic areas the size of one’s fist, color-match issues, and adhesion issues.
