Spanish company Molecor is involved in the development of the technology for applying molecular orientation to pipeline solutions. Molecular orientation is a physical process which modifies the molecular structure of the plastic, whereby amorphous PVC-U structure is re-organised into a layered structure, improving the physical and mechanical properties of this material. When applied to high-pressure water pipelines these become very resistant and have an extremely long life expectancy.
Molecor has developed a technology to manufacture PVC-O pipes ranging from DN 90mm to 800mm and up to PN 25 bar. This new system is air based which results in a safer, cleaner and more cost-efficient manufacturing process. The technology can be adapted to any specific need, technical requirement and market standard. For that purpose, Molecor builds long term relationships with its clients to back up every phase of the project, before, during and after the industrial implementation of its technology.
Molecor not only provides the machinery, but also support to its clients. This assistance includes among other aspects: studies of PVC-O standards applied in the market, support with PVC-O certification, technical studies of the installation requirements and full technical advice, start up at Molecor facilities including full training of the client’s staff, start up at the client’s factory to ensure the full success of the industrial implementation, and after sale services incorporating Molecor’s remote surveillance.
