Tom Parker is selected for UK launch of ‘SICO-AIR' ringmain systems
22 June 2011
Preston-based Tom Parker has been chosen by Italian manufacturer, SICOMAT, to be the main distributor of the latter's SICO-AIR ringmain systems in the UK. The deal gives Tom Parker a significant advantage in this market sector, as Tom Parker sales manager, Seb Cole, explains: “Our business is growing rapidly and this is exactly the type of new generation product that will help us step up to the next level.
“Aluminium Ringmain systems are already used extensively across Europe and, with demand quickly catching up here in the UK, we are anticipating a great deal of interest from our own customers.”
The systems offer a number of key advantages over the traditional malleable iron technology, which was heavy to install and required screw fittings. Instead, SICO-AIR uses lightweight extruded and calibrated aluminium pipe up to six metres in length and nylon compression fittings which are simply attached to the pipe without the need for threading or welding. The systems are quick and easy to install and reuseable while the smooth bore aluminium pipes provide an excellent flow rate and reduced pressure drop as well as resistance to fire, UV and shock.
