Fives Innovation Awards
Fives Nordon won the Special Jury Prize at the Fives Innovation Awards for its innovation "IMMUNE", an expansion joint "immunized" against corrosion, aging and rupture.
Congratulations to the Piping Solutions teams who led the project of an expansion joint specifically optimized for the FCC (Fluid Catalytic Cracking) process used in refineries.
The IMMUNE (Innovative Material and Maintenance for Ultimate Nordon Expansion-joint) expansion joint was specially designed to be immunized against three major problems encountered in refineries' FCC process:
- It is rust-proof
- Wear can be monitored easily and reliably
- In the event of a leak, the joint is equipped with a backup system reducing the time required for repairs until now by ten
IMMUNE also includes technical support and expertise services to monitor the device throughout its life cycle, from its installation to its replacement.
