For piping installation and repair, trust the experts at WN Kirkland. This includes gas, hydraulic, air, and chill or hot water piping. Our services include the installation and repair of in-line components such as valves and fittings. WN Kirkland’s services are classified according to the type of element the pipe carries, such as gas, liquid, and air.
Piping is made from a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and concrete. That’s why, when selecting which material is right for you, it’s important to consider factors such as pressure, temperature and flow rate of the transmitted element.
Gas piping carries natural gas to appliances. The most common applications for this type of piping in the home include water heaters, fireplaces, stoves, outdoor BBQ units, fire pits, and more. Due to the potential risks associated with natural gas lines, it is important that you never try to install, replace or repair them on your own. Always trust in the expert professionals at WN Kirkland. Our team can inspect your property to identify the best location for gas lines, especially for outside installations. For example, an area near a large tree could be dangerous because the roots could damage the line.
Chill and hot water piping carries hot and cold water to faucets in sinks, tubs, and showers.
Hydraulic piping is specifically used for propelling air to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. These systems rely on hydronics, which is the use of a liquid to transfer heat.
Air piping is used in systems that handle compressed air, including air compressors, air dryers, and tanks. In fact, many industrial processes use compressed air to transfer energy with tools such as air hammers, drills, and wrenches. Additional applications of compressed air include spray painting and air brakes.
Compressing air increases the concentration of water in the air, making water management a critical factor in the design of systems for compressed air. For example, designers must ensure that piping is sloped so that water doesn’t accumulate in the system’s low points. They can also use additional features such as drain valves to remove excess water from a piping system.
