MaXair compressed air pipe is made only from virgin materials with a PE100 designation, meaning the pipe and socket fusion fittings have the highest minimum strength at 20°C and at a 50-year design lifetime. As the original proprietor and distributor of MaXair, Air Energy delivers air pipe systems with higher ratings for pressure, flow, corrosion resistance and oil compatibility than any other non-metallic industrial piping in the market.
MaXair is the original PE 100 blue pipe that has set the industry standard for quality and reliability.
In addition to the unmatched pipework reliability, MaXair systems offer an extensive range of pipe components to deliver compressed air. This ensures that each system can be tailored to precisely meet the client’s needs. High safety standards are paramount when dealing with compressed gases, which is why all MaXair PE100 components are manufactured to exceed current Australian safety standards.
All Air Energy MaXair pipework systems are covered by a 50-year warranty, as per AS 4130 / AS 4131 designations. Other features include: fast installation, alterability, high resistance to chemicals/heat/corrosion, protection from metallic contaminants, low-friction surfaces and food-grade components. Underground applications are also possible with MaXair PE100 pipes’ high tolerance for pressure and low weight.
MaXair manufactures each PE100 blue pipe in accordance with AS 4130 / AS 4131. This designates a 50-year product lifetime, but long-term tests suggest that PE100 pipes can remain operational for up to 200 years at 20°C.
MaXair PE 100 blue pipe is manufactured in accordance to AS 4130 / AS 4131 and is accordingly guaranteed for 50 years provided recommended design, installation and operation practices are adopted. As established from long-term testing, PE 100 may be operated continuously under pressure for up to 200 years at 20degC.

MaXair PE100 blue pipe is used at Melbourne Zoo as well as Tooronga Park Zoo in Sydney and is now exported to leading zoos around the world as part of the Animal Environment Enhancement programs. Lions were biting through 3 ton breaking strain marine rope. Now, MaXair pipe protects and withstands the efforts of lions, bears and elephants to destroy the equipment.
Our socket fusion fittings are easily and quickly welded to give a fully fused joint of highest integrity that’s leak free and tamper proof. The blue socket fusion fittings are rated at 16 bar with a 2:1 safety factor and are also visually pleasing.
The electrofusion fittings are ideal for larger diameter compressed air pipes. Electrofusion joints can be pre-assembled, aligned or adjusted prior to applying the weld current.
Compression fittings are easily installed and compression fittings have the advantage of being removable and reusable.
