Northern Pipe Products Inc.
Quality and Service From Day One
When Northern Pipe Products Inc. entered the marketplace in 1979, we immediately focused on one very
important objective—an objective we will always maintain: to manufacture the highest quality Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipe and to back our products with a
level of service second to none in the industry. Today, that objective is still our primary calling, with Northern Pipe Products Inc. as the clear-cut leader in service and quality throughout our market area.
The distinction between our product line and that of the competition begins with our
computerized compounding center, one of the most highly automated facilities in the industry. Here is where Northern Pipe Products Inc. controls the uniformity of its
materials and the consistency of its product, setting superior standards for quality assurance with the very latest in computerized solid-state monitoring and control equipment.
Microprocessor extrusion control units produce PVC pipe to exact specifications. The
complete command of all extruder functions ultimately cuts overweights, eliminates downtime and reduces waste and scrap.
Northern Pipe Products Inc. is proud to be a world class manufacturing facility. As such,
our plant is frequently visited by customers and representatives of all industry types as a model of continuous improvement and employee involvement.
Advantages of PVC
Less energy is required to manufacture PVC than most other pipe materials.
PVC’s lighter weight makes it easier and less costly to handle, transport and install. In
fact, most PVC pipe sizes can be handled manually, reducing the need for expensive installation equipment.
Excellent flow characteristics
Sludge, slime and other residue buildups are virtually nonexistent because of PVC pipe’s
extremely smooth inner surface.
Higher flow rates
The smooth interior walls of PVC pipe translate into increased flow rates at flatter grades,
resulting in reduced trenching costs and fewer lift stations.
Tough but flexible
PVC will resist earth and live load deflection and will bend under shifting soil conditions.
PVC will withstand “hot soil” conditions. In fact, PVC requires virtually no maintenance.
But if it does become damaged, it can be easily hand-cut and repaired, resulting in lower repair costs and less interruption in water service to the consumer.
Installation Made Easy
Because of its light weight and durability, PVC pipe from Northern Pipe Products Inc. can
be money in the bank for any building project by saving time and reducing labor, transportation and maintenance costs. It’s no wonder, then, that our PVC is the premier pipe for today’s builders.
Northern Pipe Products Inc. . .A Closer Look at PVC
When selecting the best pipe material for a particular project, several significant factors
should be considered such as cost, efficiency, design advantages, ease of installation, and required maintenance. Until PVC entered the picture, there weren’t many options.
Today, there is no question about your material preference. The highest grade materials
are used to produce Northern Pipe Products Inc. PVC pipe, and this rich blend of resin, combined with the latest extrusion equipment, results in the finest PVC pipe found anywhere…guaranteed.
Finished products are regularly tested to insure that all production meets or exceeds
ASTM and NSF standards.
The Hydrostatic Pressure Test
is conducted to determine the ability of a pipe to withstand water pressure far in excess of the pipe’s rating. Deflection Tests proceed to
flatten a test section of pipe, checking for signs of splitting, cracking or breaking. Impact Tests drop weights from varying heights to determine pipe’s resistance to shattering.
The ability to meet these test standards assures product reliability, and continues the tradition of quality PVC products, courtesy Northern Pipe Products Inc.
