Compressed air is a must for many industrial facilities. Macomb Mechanical offers in house turn key installation capabilities from system piping design to field installed air piping of any size or pressure. We also offer design and installation of both water and air heat recovery options, allowing you to capture the heat generated by the compressed air equipment.
In many industrial facilities, air compressors use more electricity than any other type of equipment. Inefficiencies in compressed air systems can therefore make a big difference in energy expenses. We can analyze your system to identify opportunities for improving efficiency and overall improvement. Furthermore, Macomb Mechanical can work with your compressor manufacturer making certain that every aspect of your gas system's installation is managed and installed correctly.

Macomb Mechanical employs journeymen technicians who are certified to install medical gas piping in the state of Michigan. Our field technicians work in hospitals and other healthcare facilities and regularly install many types of medical gas piping. Macomb Mechanical is accustomed to furnishing all labor and materials necessary for complete gas system installation, cleaning, testing, and certification of medical vacuum, waste anesthesia gas disposal, and gas distribution and monitoring systems, including; piping, inlets, outlets, alarms, valves, supports, labeling, identification, and all related accessories.
The Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) administers the regulations for medical gas piping installer endorsement for journeyman plumbers. Anyone who works in the medical gas piping trade must be endorsed and maintain an active state of Michigan journeymen plumber certification. Individuals learning to install medical gas piping are required to carry trainee certificates.
Medical piped gas systems in hospitals, and most other healthcare facilities, are essential for supplying piped oxygen, nitrous oxide, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and medical air to various parts of the hospital. These systems are usually highly monitored by various computerized alarm systems.
Safety standards for oxygen and other positive-pressure medical gases require the use of Type K or L copper tube (see ASTM B 819). Special cleanliness requirements are called for because oxygen under pressure may cause the spontaneous combustion of some organic oils (the residual of lubricating oil used during manufacture) and for the safety of patients receiving medical gases.
Copper tube for medical gas lines is furnished by the manufacturers suitably cleaned and capped or plugged. Care must be taken to prevent contamination of the system when the caps or plugs are removed and tube is installed. The installer must satisfy himself and the inspection department that the cleanliness requirements of the code have been met.
