NIRON PP-RCT installed in a secondary school in Minnesota

NIRON PP-RCT pipes and fittings were successfully installed in a secondary school in Minnesota hosting around 2,000 students to replace the old steel piping that showed some leakage. The NIRON system is always a viable alternative to steel pipes due to its inertia to any corrosion caused by water and its special chemical composition. PP-RCT pipes and fittings were chosen for this installation. PP-RCT is a new generation material that represents the evolution of the well-known and consolidated PP-R and a valid alternative when it starts showing some limitation, such as in case of high pressures, especially at high temperatures. Its temperature/pressure performance allows for the use of thinner pipes thus offering a greater flow rate with the same diameter. The advantage of polypropylene pipes lies in the lightness of the pipe which has certainly facilitated the replacement operations. The combined use of butt fusion, socket fusion and electrofusion welding allowed to exploit the system properties to the fullest and to run the works quickly and safely. Typically NIRON PP-RCT does not require visits for testing, but because it is installed in a school, additional checks were requested by the school board. The visit was successful so any safety concern for the schoolkids was eliminated. The system was installed for chilled water, potable hot and cold water. Watch the photo gallery.

Renewal of ISO 9001 company certificate

We are proud to announce that, following the successful completion of the renewal audit in accordance with Standard ISO 9001: 2015, the company certificate has been renewed. ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized Standard for Quality Management Systems (SGQs). The international Standard UNI EN ISO 9001: 2015, replacing UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008, specifies the requirements of a quality management system when an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to regularly provide products or services that meet customers’ requirements and increase their satisfaction. Among the main innovations of the new Standard, there is risk-based risk management, namely risk identification, qualification and management. Quality is the result of proper risk management, which goes beyond the product or service offered: there can be no quality if you cannot offer a long term product or service to the customer. Another important novelty is the focus on responsible and visible leadership, which becomes the foundation for quality achievement.

NIRON PP-RCT for the Porta Nuova financial district in Milan

NIRON polypropylene pipes produced by NUPI Industrie Italiane have been used for the replacement of the steel piping of the air-conditioning system of the Porta Nuova financial district in Milan. Porta Nuova is the new district in Milan hosting the CTBUH award winning Bosco Verticale building, which incorporates an incredible living green façade. After just a few years, steel pipes showed leakage due to the particular chemical composition of the groundwater. The NIRON polypropylene system is always a viable alternative to steel pipes due to its inertia to any corrosion caused by water and its special chemical composition. For this very reason, the NIRON system was chosen by CEFLA, the contractor company based in Imola, Italy, which looks after the maintenance and management of heating and air-conditioning systems in civil and industrial buildings. PP-RCT pipes and fittings were chosen for this installation. PP-RCT is a new generation material that represents the evolution of the well-known and consolidated PP-R and a valid alternative when it starts showing some limitation, such as in case of high pressures, especially at high temperatures. Its temperature/pressure performance allows for the use of thinner pipes thus offering a greater flow rate with the same diameter. The advantage of polypropylene pipes lies in the lightness of the pipe which has certainly facilitated the replacement operations. In addition to pipes up to a maximum diameter of 315mm, various special pre-assembled parts were produced in NUPI Industrie Italiane laboratories. The entire system was replaced without causing discomfort to the offices operating within the facilities. All the works were done at night and during the weekend to prevent service interruption to the offices. In addition to elbows and tees, NUPI Industrie Italiane also produced several large manifolds with up to 11-way outputs, made up of Ø125mm saddle joints welded by polyfusion welding, flanged and then joined to elbows welded by butt fusion. The combined use of butt fusion, socket fusion and electrofusion welding allowed to exploit the system properties to the fullest and to run the works quickly and safely.

NIRON PPR for the logistics center of the Stradivarius brand in Barcelona

The Spanish textile group Inditex, owner of the Zara fashion chain and other brands such as Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Oysho and Pull&Bear, invested 15 million euros in the construction ​​of a logistics center of the Stradivarius brand, specialized in informal clothing in Sallent, near Barcelona. The center is located on a 12 hectare-ground and employs around 400 people. All the designs of the group are developed here and between 5 and 6 million units leave the plant each week. Stradivarius sells today 110 million clothes a year with a turnover of over one billion euros and more than 1,000 stores in 60 countries. The Stradivarius centre in Sallent has been recently expanded and renewed using NIRON PPR purple pipes for recycled water and NIRON PPR blue pipes for drinking water. Resorts, hotels, shopping malls and companies are increasingly adopting water conservation criteria, a mandatory requirement for both energy saving and environmental protection. The use of recycled water has a huge impact on operating costs and profitability and this is why NUPI Industrie Italiane designed a range of specific pipelines. Purple colour complies with international standards and makes the product immediately recognizable within the installation areas. The Inditex textile group is heavily rooted in Catalonia, where 4 of its 18 factories are located. Sallent, a small town of 6,780 people with an industry-based economy, pioneered the Catalan industrialization and focused on the textile sector for over a hundred years. In 1828, the first mechanical loom of Spain was installed here. The imprint of the textile field remains thanks to the presence of Stradivarius. In its offices, there are half a dozen old sewing machines, one of which was owned by the grandmother of the company's general manager, Jordi Triquell. Watch the photo gallery.
