Tom Parker Ltd responds to demand by expanding SICO-AIR range

Tom Parker August picPreston-based pneumatic and hydraulic specialists Tom Parker Ltd., has announced that, in response to increasing demand from customers, it is expanding its SICO-AIR range by offering the entire range in larger sizes of up to 50mm.

Tom Parker Ltd was recently chosen by the market-leading Italian manufacturer, SICOMAT, to be the main distributor of SICO-AIR ringmain systems in the UK and expansion of the Tom Parker Ltd offering represents a natural progression for the company.

The deal has provided Tom Parker Ltd with a significant advantage in this innovative market sector by enabling it to offer its customers the comprehensive range of cutting-edge SICO-AIR systems.

A new generation of products

As Tom Parker Ltd's Sales Manager, Seb Cole, explains: "We knew from the outset that SICO-AIR's new generation of products would be popular with our customers but the response has exceeded even our expectations".

"Aluminium ringmain systems have been used extensively across Europe for some time now and it is clear that our UK customers have been equally quick to embrace the exciting new technology that SICO-AIR represents."

Light, quick and easy to install in every application

SICO-AIR compressed air distribution systems offer a number of key advantages over the traditional malleable iron technology, which was heavy to install and required screw fittings. Instead, SICO-AIR uses lightweight extruded and calibrated aluminium pipe up to six metres in length and nylon compression fittings which are simply attached to the pipe without the need for threading or welding.

The systems are quick and easy to install while the smooth bore aluminium pipes provide an excellent flow rate and reduced pressure drop as well as resistance to fire, UV exposure, shock and long-term corrosion, making the system uniquely durable, re-usable and economical.

The system is also incredibly flexible, adapting with ease to every conceivable application from small installations to large industrial production plants.

An unrivalled package of products and expertise

Concludes Seb: "We are delighted to be working with SICOMAT, particularly in handling a product range that introduces some distinct innovations and benefits to the UK marketplace".

"The many product benefits dovetail perfectly with our unrivalled technical knowledge and expertise to present our customers with a very attractive package of superior performance and service support."
