ISOLFIN® is selected as Best Managed Companies by the Deloitte Institute

Rome, 15 September 2020 – ISOLFIN® is among the Best Managed Companies for 2020 according to the Deloitte institute.

There are 59 “Deloitte Best Managed Companies” (BMC), companies that have distinguished themselves for strategy, skills and innovation, commitment and corporate culture, governance and performance, internationalization and sustainability, awarded as part of the Deloitte initiative supported by ALTIS Università Cattolica, from ELITE – the London Stock Exchange Group program that supports the development and growth of high-potential companies – and from Confindustria

Born in Canada in 1993, BMC has since grown to become a global brand and an internationally recognized quality brand.

This year ISOLFIN® has already been included by Sole24Ore in the list of Leaders for Growth 2020 (https://bit.ly/3ico1AH) and in the Champions for Growth 2020 by the German Institute for Quality and Finance with the partnership of Repubblica. It is also a finalist in the prestigious international award for trade and economy Le Fonti Awards in the Innovation category, whose ceremony will unveil the winners on October 30 in Milan.

The CEO of ISOLFIN®, Marco Nori, commented: “In a complicated year like 2020, for ISOLFIN® it is an important recognition that confirms the work of a quality team and that rewards our patience to implement a long-term strategy based on innovation and sustainability.

Tolmount offshore platform

It is finished and gone towards its final destination: the North Sea. But for more than two years we worked on it in Marina Di Ravenna, Italy: it was a privilege to participate in the construction of the #Tolmount platform, 5,500 tons of Made in Italy engineering.
Within 30 days of navigation it will be installed off the coast of the United Kingdom to supply natural gas to hundreds of thousands of families.

Good bye Tolmount, we are proud of you.

SaniBox, workplace entryway sanitation

How do you return to being productive without putting workers at risk? These days, this is the number one concern for employers and employees alike. For this very reason, we patented SaniBox: a mobile and modular station that sanitizes workplace entryways in a fully automated process.

To respond to the difficulties of the Covid-19 pandemic, SaniBox is designed to monitor entryways according to body temperature and provide automatic disinfection of people and/or things without the need for constant control by a dedicated operator.

The procedure initially uses a thermal imaging camera to detect a person’s body temperature, after which a nebulization of sanitizing substances reduces any residual presence of the virus in the person’s clothes and/or accessories. This process makes it possible to secure the movement of people in close-quarter environments and in aggregation centres.

SaniBox is customizable, versatile, transportable, and easily installed in any entryway. It is designed to decontaminate and monitor the greatest number of entrances in the shortest possible time, in a completely automatic way, thus avoiding lines and without the constant monitoring of an operator.

Active Air Sanitation

INDUCT, AP 500 and AS 200 are solutions designed for the indoor environments remediation from microbial agents, viruses, molds, allergens and odors; these are devices that use PCO technology for the continuous sanitization of air, environments and surfaces.

Induct is a device that can be installed directly inside the all-air ventilation system that guarantees continuous and active sanitization of the indoor environment. Depending on the characteristics of the system (flow rate, duct dimensions, rooms, etc. …), the number and size of the devices to be installed will be estimated.

In fact, Induct is available in the cuts expressed in sq ft (square feet) of the surface of the environment to be treated: 500 – 750 – 2000 – 5000 – 10000. The Ozone generator is integrated in the PCO cell. The air conditioning project is required for the estimate.

Portable device with integrated ventilation system. AP 500 allows the sanitation of spaces up to 500 sq ft (square feet), or approximately 46 sq m. It is a one-size product.

Main product features:

  • 220 V power supply or 12/24 V network with inverter (not included). Estimated consumption: 13 W
  • ON / OFF switch
  • Dimensions: 15,5 x 30 x 10 cm

Weight: 1.3 kg

Equipped with an integrated ventilation system, AS 200 allows you to sanitize up to 3000 sq ft (square feet), or approximately 279 sq m.

It is a one-size product. Main features:

  • 220 V power Estimated consumption: 70 W
  • Adjustable ventilation fan and remote control
  • AWAY mode for «super sanitization» with Ozone
  • Dimensions: 30.5 x 23 x 30.5 cm
  • Weight: 4.6 kg

 

The PCO technology

The PCO (PhotoCatalytic Oxidation) technology, was produced in the mid-90s by NASA for the sanitization of environments intended for aerospace missions.

The technology imitates and reproduces what occurs in nature through photocatalysis: this process, thanks to the combined action of UV rays from the sun, moisture present in the air and some noble metals present in nature, generates oxidizing ions capable of destroy most pollutants and toxic substances.

The photochemical reaction that is generated therefore allows to destroy polluting substances, in particular bacteria, viruses, molds, allergens and odors, with a natural active principle.

The PCO technology of the products, uses the combined action of a special UV bulb rays and a catalyst structure consisting of a metal alloy with a honeycomb matrix, mainly composed of TiO2 (titanium dioxide) and other noble metals.

 

The picture below exemplifies the operation process of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology.

 

  • The air flow laden with humidity, carried by the ventilation system, passes through the module composed of the metal alloy
  • A photochemical oxidation reaction starts thanks to the action of a high intensity UV lamp, producing hydroxyl radicals (OH) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)
  • Bacteria and pollutants decomposition through oxidation reactions and virus inactivation increasing the oxygen level
  • Spreading into the surrounding environment and depositing on the surfaces, hydrogen peroxide allows the safe, effective and complete sanitization of the surfaces of the ducts, of the air and, by fall, also of the surfaces of the treated rooms and any fabrics.

 

Why «active sanitation»?

The proposed active sanitization system differs from passive sanitization systems (traditional filtration, classic ionization, germicidal lamps) in that, thanks to the oxidizing agents generated by PCO technology, there is a sanitizing effect not only at the point where the device is installed but also on the surfaces of the environment affected by the air flow and in the entire aeraulic circuit.

It’s possible to install our products both in the A.H.U. that in the ducts of the all-air system downstream of the fan, so that the air flow invests and passes correctly through the unit
