    The Edge: NIBCO’s Press System minimized installation time without compromising safety or quality, plus NIBCO’s strong belief in ‘green.’

    “NIBCO was selected to be used on this project based on proven reliability, availability and competitive pricing,” said Mark Malencia, Ruthrauff/Sauer project superintendent. “Products that minimize installation time, while maintaining the integrity of the systems, have been utilized for both heating and plumbing on this job.” Malencia defined integrity of a system as being “low-maintenance, high-performance” for the life of the building.

    Brian Kelly, NIBCO sales engineer, provided on-site training for the entire installation team from Local 449. This included installation instructions for the NIBCO Press System including fittings, valves and tools. Kelly also conducted a review of safety procedures as well as site visits to ensure the ongoing integrity of the constructed portions of the system.

    The NIBCO Press System was used for 2” and under and was used on all mains and branches for two reasons. First, it eliminates the need for flames, soldering or flux creating a safer work environment with no VOC emissions and improved air quality.

    Second, the Press-fit technology makes it easy to install wet or dry and significantly reduces installation time when compared to traditional sweat copper systems. According to Malencia, “The selection of NIBCO’s press-fit system was based on timely installation. The fittings clearly improved the installation process.”

    Although current code and policy barriers prevent the Rivers Casino from achieving LEED certification, the casino’s HVAC and plumbing systems do embody the principles of green building design. With the combined experience of Ruthrauff | Sauer and NIBCO, Pittsburgh residents and visitors can bet on enjoying their casino experience in comfort and style.
