Kaeser’s SmartPipe

Whether you know it as Kaeser’s SmartPipe+ or SmartPipe it’s the gold standard for piping in the compressed air systems industry. It’s why Elevated Industrial Solutions is an authorized vendor, installing this pipe throughout South Carolina, Michigan, and Ohio.

What is SmartPipe?

It’s the pipe used for air flow in compressed air systems, created by Kaeser. Installers (whether it’s your team or a vendor) will add that pipe when you create or expand your compressed air system.

Kaeser’s SmartPipe is available in sizes up to 8″ pipe diameter in aluminum, and available in stainless steel in 10″ pipe diameter. Connectors, to connect pipe, ensure it’s also leak-free.


Kaeser indicates SmartPipe+ components are nonflammable and 100% recyclable. The piping is constructed of alloy aluminum and it’s blue, powder-coated on the outside. Pipe, fittings, and valves are
guaranteed silicone free.

And a plug here – please don’t ever use PVC for compressed air installations. It’s a safety hazard.


SmartPipe is popular with plant managers, facility managers, installers, and compressed air service technicians because it comes in a variety of sizes, is faster to install, and has lower long-term operating costs associated with it. Because of this flexibility, it works for small and large facilities. Plus, because SmartPipe has no rough surfaces or interior restrictions that accumulate contaminants, the airflow and quality of this pipe tend to be better. So, the higher the air quality standards your facility has, the more likely compressed air installation experts will be to recommend SmartPipe.

Kaeser lists the benefits of SmartPipe (at a glance) as the following:

  • Installs faster than other common piping
  • No specialized trades needed
  • No threading, welding, or brazing pipe
  • Simple mounting and connecting hardware
  • Can connect to existing systems with other pipe types
  • Easy to add on to or disassemble for your changing needs
  • Compression-style valves and fittings 2 1/2″ and below
  • Bolt-on style fittings 3″ and above
  • 10-year warranty
  •  ISO 4414/EN983 compliant
