New production line for PB and PE-RT pipes

New production line for PB and PE-RT 5-layer pipes with oxygen barrier in the intermediate layer for ELOWEB floor heating systems. The new production line guarantees high production speed and operates at full capacity since September. ELOWEB is the floor systems system for efficient and alternative floor heating and cooling. The validity of radiant systems for heating and cooling of civil or industrial environments is well known, appreciated and recommended not only by experts in heating and energy saving, but also by building designers and interior decorators that enhance its simplicity, functionality and aesthetics. Construction costs are comparable to those for a traditional high-temperature system, but with the advantage of offering uniform heat distribution, energy savings, improved air quality and improved hygiene and cleanliness both for heating and cooling.

MEP library available on NUPI AMERICAS website

PBIMs are virtual models of BIM totally compliant NUPI products including all the information provided by the international regulatory landscape. BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, a computable representation of the functional features of a building that arises from the need to fully manage the building process. Additionally, the MEP library in the *.iez format of the items is now available on NUPI AMERICAS website for installers to use within the Autodesk Fabrication software database. In this library each item (*.itm) is identified by its dimensional and connection feature to facilitate its interface in plant assemblies. They are in RVT format for Autodesk Revit 2016. NUPI PBIM is regularly updated and optimized.

Successful tests for NERO by NIRON pipes

NERO by NIRON pipes successfully passed a special protocol and test method based on Standard EN 16472. The specimen was exposed to a High Energy device with an UV irradiance of 300 W.m2 @ 80°C and periodic water spray. The black layer did not result to be oxidized at all, showing that the PP internal layer is fully protected by the UV protection layer for an estimated lifetime of over 30 years.

New NIRON PP-RCT saddles

We are proud to present our new NIRON PP-RCT threaded branch saddles and spigot saddles. NIRON β PP-RCT is a system produced with a new generation material that uses a special β-nucleation process. The new formulation and production process of PP-RCT allows pipes produced with this material to perform at higher stress conditions and high temperatures.

NERO by NIRON pipes with PP-RCT internal layer

New NERO by NIRON pipes with PP-RCT internal layer for installations where UV protection is not guaranteed or adequate produced for the U.S. markets. NERO by NIRON is a pipe and fitting system produced using PPR material with an outer layer of polypropylene duly UV stabilized. NIRON β PP-RCT is a system produced with a new generation material that allows pipes produced with this material to perform at higher stress conditions and high temperatures.

New NIRON brass valves with PPR adapters

New NIRON brass valves with polypropylene adapters. Adapters can be made either in blue PPR or in grey PP-RCT. NIRON PPR is a complete polypropylene pipe and fitting system for the distribution of hot and cold water in plumbing and air conditioning systems. NIRON β PP-RCT is a system produced with a new generation material that uses a special β-nucleation process. The new formulation and production process of PP-RCT allows pipes produced with this material to perform at higher stress conditions and high temperatures.

ELOFIT special full rate tees diameter 400x280 SDR9

Some ELOFIT full rate tees diameter 400x280 SDR9 have been specially produced for our distributor in Dubai in our plant in Busto Arsizio. The High Density Polyethylene ELOFIT fittings for the conveyance of water and gas under pressure are manufactured in compliance with the most prestigious and rigid Italian and international certification bodies. The production of these customized tees proves once again that NUPI can satisfy any need of its customers, thanks to its cutting-edge design office and production department.

New product range NERO by NIRON

NERO by NIRON is a product range with an outer layer of POLYPROPYLENE duly UV stabilized thanks to a specially developed dedicated masterbatch. This outer layer allows the pipe to be used for installations where UV protection is not guaranteed or adequate. NERO by NIRON is produced in polypropylene and is also available in multilayer structure with the addition of fiberglass in the intermediate layer. As the stress-bearing layer is made with PPR, it has the high, well known and standardized performances of this class of polypropylene (Type 3). The mechanical and physical properties fully comply with EN ISO 15874 Standard. NERO by NIRON pipes are compliant to the main Standards for the conveyance of potable water. It can be produced in different SDRs. The selection of the proper SDR and design is related to the required operating conditions. The pipe has been designed with the highest safety standards. The UV barrier layer is in fact in addition to the SDR stress-bearing layer of the pipe. The Nominal Diameter is maintained to facilitate the welding operations. NERO by NIRON piping range goes from Ø20 mm to Ø160 mm. Bigger sizes can be provided upon request. NERO by NIRON fittings are of the electrofusion type and are produced by adding a UV stabilizer masterbatch to the polypropylene base. This allows the full continuity of the UV protection in the installed pipeline. All the parts not chemically protected must be physically protected. The performance of the UV protective layer has been evaluated by means of a test that confimed that the black UV layer maintains its protective action for 30 years in standard weather conditions typical of Southern Europe (Italy).

NUPI enters the BIM world

In the world of installations, integrated design through three-dimensional software is now indispensable for the designer, the work manager and the installer. A methodology that allows to manage, organize and monitor all phases of the project, ensuring the ability to control both constructive technology and interdisciplinary co-ordination and the flow of information is now indispensable. BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, a computable representation of the functional features of a building that arises from the need to fully manage the building process, from the construction drawing to the lifelong lifecycle management. This objective is achieved by using architectural, structural and installation modeling platforms that can describe and structure buildings with representations that go beyond the three standard dimensions but also cover the dimensions of the construction work time and cost and the size of maintenance processes to best manage the building itself. At the head of an efficient BIM design there must be a completely BIM compliant product. This is the goal of Nupi Industrie Italiane. The company invested in providing the user with the BIM libraries of its products. Each model contains all the graphic and informational details needed to recognize the components and the manufacturer, with the appropriate tools that automate each operation in a MEP project, maximizing its usability at all stages of the building process. The benefits of a project based on BIM products are far beyond the simple realistic representation of the three-dimensional item, starting from the dynamic and controlled extraction of the updated data, to the implementation of all possible logical, analytical and structural connections with a view to a system of Cloud sharing. A BIM approach, obviously set on totally BIM compliant systems, gives the opportunity to further explore the subject and develop a multitude of post-projects, quick solutions and incomparable costs. A BIM-made model allows to check plant installation solutions in terms of integrated design from both a calculating and a computing point of view, by automatically decoding info-graphic, computing and project results. A design approach of this type would drop the costs associated with the management and maintenance of each project, allowing monitoring of each plant until its disposal. Each intervention could be studied up to a very high level of detail with a complete view of any possible clash detection of other units present throughout the plant, making it possible to design any maintenance intervention without the need for continuous on-site visits or last minute changes during the installation, with full compliance with the preventive chrono program and full remote supervision.
