The revisions of the ISO 9624 and ISO 4427 standards were published last month. The revision of the ISO 9624 “Thermoplastics piping systems for fluids under pressure - Flange adapters and loose backing flanges - Mating dimensions” is very important for our market, national and European, because it establishes the minimum dimensions of the coupling surfaces for the flanged jointing systems.

The revision of this document has involved a long series of meetings of the ISO technical working group and the results of these meetings can be summarized in the following news:

  1. The model has been standardized to that defined in ISO 15494 (e.g.: bending radii and chamfers).
  2. The range has been extended to diameters up to dn 2500.
  3. The working pressures have been extended, now including PN25 products and up to dn 500.
  4. Defined the marking of both back loosing flanges and flange adapters.
  5. The adoption of three annexes including one relating to the types of gaskets that can be adopted and one that illustrates the methods of tightening the screws.

During the revision, corrections were also made to the product list. These corrections were determined by experience in the field and therefore the dn 450 products for the use with DN450 flange and dn 630 products for the use with DN600 flange are no longer included in the list. For these types of products, each manufacturer can always offer specific technical solutions.

The revision of the ISO 4427 group of standards Plastics piping systems for water supply and drainage and sewerage under pressure - Polyethylene (PE) - has made some editorial improvements to the documents but has not introduced the PE100-RC classification yet. However, part 3 introduces the possibility of applying two-dimensional codes (QR-code, Aztec or Matrix) to the electro-fusion fittings for the transfer of the welding parameters to the control units, as defined in ISO 12176-5 (in the process of being published). Also the aim of ISO 4427-5 “Fitness of the purpose of the system” has been improved. A note reminds that the application of this standard is reserved to the manufactures of the products and cannot be used for extra-factory evaluations, e.g.: performed by the customers.

 

Plastitalia will take part in the PERUMIN 34 exhibition, from 16th to 20th of September 2019 in Arequipa, Peru. Perumin 34 is an exhibitions dedicated to the mining industry. The event will include workshops and conferences that will bring together the main national and international experts, authorities and business leaders, who will discuss the various issues concerning the mining industry, the Peru's most important sector.

Plastitalia is waiting for you at the Cerro Juli Convention Center, Hall D stand 962.

The new certificate has been released by the English Water Regulation Advisory Office. This certificate is about the use, during the manufacturing, of the latest new resin generation. With this certificate Plastitalia aim to be one of the first company, in Europe, to achieve this exclusive goal.

Plastitalia has been awarded by a brand new certification from Bureau Veritas (Italy) UNI 11024: Quality requirements for welding of polyethylene pipes for gas, water and other pressure fluids pipelines. This standard sets rules for organizations involved in the welding of plastics pipeline and/or components (e.g.: fabricated bends, etc.). The observation of the UNI 11024 requirements is a guarantee for the market that the organization has a documented system management for the whole welding processes. For a company like Plastitalia this process starts with the customer’s request and go on with all stages, eg.: purchasing of the right material and its control, training of internal welders and people, checks of tools and equipment and testing of the item manufactured on the base of an internal sampling plan. All of this is made to provide the market with products that, even made as an handcraft, are under control at the same level of an industrial product.

During the last 11th December took place the traditional meeting in which the whole sales force is informed and analyze the sales results related to the running year.

Especially positive data have been shown related to the trend of sales and payments. The first let to register a good improvement while a favorable reduction of times for the second is saw.

Some time has been spent into the analysis of the Italian market where the sales were growth much more than the budget forecast. This  result, compared with the Italian market data, allows us to think to our Company as one of the most important leader in the internal market.

Nevertheless these results aren’t see as a point of arrival but rather a starting point for the new year’s sales strategy.

Plastitalia represents the excellence of Italian production throughout the world, through the production of polyethylene fittings for water, gas and industrial fluids.
