In NoDig systems for pressure pipes, the weakest link is the connection between them. The CODURE flange overcomes this problem by being an innovative solution in the form of a fully anti-slip joint made of glass fibre reinforced polymers with a plug and play installation design. The result is a single, chemically coherent liner-connection entity, that meets the same requirements as the CIPP liner and it is totally independent from the existing pipeline.

"GR-FLUSH" AUTOMATIC RINSING BALL VALVE
expected date of market launch 01/01/2021
The main cause of the formation of legionella is due to a bacterium that is naturally present in water and one of the main risk factors for the growth of this bacterium is the stagnation of water in water systems. GREINER S.p.A. has designed and built a new brass ball valve that guarantees a complete, fast and automatic rinsing of all the internal parts of the valve itself, that are potentially stagnation areas in the standard versions.

Green Valve System
Green Valve System® is a self-sufficient system, capable to regulate the pressure required in a pipeline (like a PRFV valve) and at the same time to measure the flowrate without needing to be powered, using the energy gained from the fluid passing through the valve. Developed in collaboration with the hydraulic division of “Politecnico” university of Milano, it represents a game changer tool for improving the efficiency of water networks.
Rubinetterie Bresciane Bonomi S.p.A.
Pad. 20 Stand C/34
Ball valve QB for water connection with minimum vital water flow
The ball valve of Rubinetterie Bresciane Bonomi S.p.A. QB (Patent-Pending) is designed and engineered to solve the need to supply the minimum vital water flow to defaulting users, as indicated in the DECREE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS 13-10-2016. The valve is equipped with a flow limiter that allows you to dispense the minimum flow of water required, constant over time and independent of the variation of the pressure of the aqueduct.
