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.

NIRON PP-RCT success story drives market acceptance in North America

One of NUPI Americas most succesful NIRON PP-RCT case studies was mentioned in Borealis Media Release. The Media Release served to prove the numerous advantages of PP-RCT in several ground-breaking projects in North America: "In a project in Illinois, Borealis worked with NUPI AMERICAS to install PP-RCT in the existing elderly care facility Wesley Willows Senior Living Center in Rockford. NIRON PP-RCT was used for hydronic installation to re-pipe an ageing system, and for a replacement cooling tower and other equipment". NUPI AMERICAS is very proud to see its work mentioned by Borealis, the worldwide renowned leading provider of innovative solutions in the field of plastic raw materials.
