Molecor milestones. From K-2007 to K-2013
PUBLISHED: 09 Sep 13
Molecor milestones, since 2006 innovating to supply the machine to manufacture the largest range of PVC-O pipes in the world
Molecor Tecnología S.L is a Spanish company founded in 2006, pioneer in air based molecular orientation technology applied to pipelines for the transport of water. Nowadays, the activity of the company is developed in two lines of business, Molecor Canalizaciones, PVC-O pipe manufacturing and trading, and Molecor TECH which supplies a groundbreaking technology own developed able to manufacture PVC-O pipes up to DN 800mm (30") and 25 bar (365 psi).
The first Molecor PVC-O pipe manufactured with its patented technology was produced in 2007, just on time to be shown at the K-2007, the first K-Show for Molecor. This first tube was a DN200mm. In 2008, the range was increased to DN400mm, until then the "unofficial" limit for PVC-O pipes.
Owing to the company's commitment to continuous innovation, Molecor was able for the first time in 2010 to break this limit, and to manufacture tubes of larger diameters: DN 450 and DN 500 mm, which was then called "the biggest PVC-O pipe in the world". That is how the product was presented at the K-2010 show, where Molecor was participating at Hall 16 as exhibitor. The conference was also held with a very positive response from the public.
From K-2010 to K-2013, Molecor has gone a long way increasing the range of PVC-O pipes now produced. In 2010 the range went from DN 90 mm to DN 500 mm (4" - 20") in PN 16 (232 psi) and PN25 bar. Nowadays PVC-O pipes are manufactured up to DN 630mm (24") PN25, and the technology is now ready to reach up to DN 800mm (30").
In 2011, due to the company expansion, an additional factory was opened in the outskirts of Madrid, with the aim of strengthen its technological R & D position.
In 2013 the company is again moving to a larger facility in order increase its manufacturing capacity and thus to be able to give a better service to its clients.
On this K-2013 edition, Molecor will present one of its latest technological developments, the ISS+, an innovative system, patent pending, to manufacture PVC-O pipes with Integrated Seal System, where the gasket is placed automatically inside the socket.
