IPS - Graze and Raise in Aid of Alzheimers

Today saw staff at IPS Flow Systems hold a Graze & Raise Coffee Morning (well actually, day, given the amount of food brought in!) in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

Thanks to all those who baked and ate, together we raised £170 which will be added to money collect from other events during the year and we'll announce our grand total at the end of the year.

After all of that food, its a good job a number of us are off to walk around Buttermere tomorrow!

IPS – Our Company’s Company – A Closer Look

Some say that a man is judged by the company he keeps.

Well, just for the record, here at IPS we're totally comfortable being judged by the company we keep. Especially when we count companies like AGRU amongst our friends.

AGRU is one of the world’s most significant suppliers of plastic piping systems. And we’re proud to have them as our supplier.

Three Out Of Three Aint Bad… It’s Perfect!

AGRU have been around for 70 years.

And since 2010 AGRU have been producing large diameter pipes using their own extrusion technology. This new technology, developed by AGRU’s in-house experts enables them to achieve the ‘holy trinity’ of pipe creation – and to virtually any size.

The three most important parts of the pipe manufacturing process, at a product level, are:

  • The creation of ultra smooth inside and outside surfaces
  • High roundness of the pipe itself
  • Uniform wall thickness on the pipe circumference
Getting all three right is hard! Unless you’re AGRU of course. Then it’s built into every job, every day, every time.

We’re proud to be working with AGRU. If you’d like to find out more about the exceptional capabilities of AGRU or indeed any of our exceptional portfolio of suppliers here at IPS, please give us a call on Freephone 0800 975 7971.

Ask anything! We love a challenge.

PS. Look out for more "IPS – Our Company’s Company – A Closer Look" stories in the future.

World Cup 2018 Raffle

There's A Surprise, Just Click and See

Congratulations to the England football team on reaching the semi-final stage of the World Cup 2018 and let’s hope we can carry on right through to the final and bring the trophy home for the first time since 1966. 

Anyhow, it’s fantastic that the whole country is buzzing with excitement and we’d like to keep the momentum going by raising a few pounds for our chosen charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.

During the course of 2018 we’ve been holding a number of different fund raising events including a marathon bicycle ride and we’re also planning a walk in Lake District later in the year.

We have two official Adidas Telstar 2018 replica World Cup footballs which would normally retail at around £130 each but we’re giving them away free to two lucky customers!

We will donate £1 to our charity fund for every single order received during the course of July, regardless of order value, size or volume etc.  Therefore, every order placed will be eligible for a raffle ticket and the draw will be made at the end of the month.

With a little bit of luck and a fair wind, this should see us reach a nice tidy sum and the winners will be announced together with the total raised on 1 August 2018.

If you would also like to make donation to this worthy cause then please email to or call us directly on +44 (0)191 5213111. 

Thanks in advance to all our wonderful customers and suppliers and apologies for our MD’s singing – it’s a good job he knows a little bit about plastic piping systems....!!

We're on our way

We at IPS are so proud of our very own Sales Development Director Andrew Lamb enroute to completing his seventh, yes SEVENTH, Vatternrundan.

The Vatternrundan is the world’s largest recreational bike ride spanning 300km around the lake Vattern in Sweden.

This year Andrew was accompanied by his good friend and cycling buddy Alan Moutter, in this gruelling task.

Andrew and Alan have put their bodies on the line for this bike ride to support a very worthy charity, the Alzheimer Society.
The Alzheimer Society are transforming the landscape of dementia forever, creating a society where those effected by this dreadful disease are supported and accepted.

We are sure that we can all agree that the exhausting task is difficult enough but when you think how small their legs are it becomes even more demanding!

With this in mind they have set up a Just Giving page for friends, colleagues and supporters to help them achieve a great total for the charity. The Just Giving can be found at the following link

Please remember that every little helps, so if you can donate however large or small it will make a difference to a sufferers life, their family’s life or their carers life.

Thank you.

AGRU - PE100-RC Setting the Standard

See our Ad in Water Active

Agru continue to lead the world in the production of high-quality piping systems, semi-finished products, concrete protection liners and lining systems.  Their expertise in producing engineering plastics components and developing tailored solutions ensure that AGRU is present in virtually every industrial sector.

PE100-RC material is now readily available in Pipe, Fittings & Sheet from IPS Flow Systems in the UK and Ireland.

Modified PE100, which until recently was only used for special customer-specific applications, is now used throughout the entire AGRULINE product range. The main technical advantage of PE100-RC is that it is significantly more resistant to slow crack growth. This saves costs during installation, improves safety, and extends service life.

AGRU's latest development for fabrication and tank construction in sheets and welding rods made of PE100-RC is characterized by the excellent stress crack resistance.

PE100-RC material requirements

The full-notch creep test (FNCT as per ISO 16770) is a recognised test method for determining resistance to slow crack growth in polyethylene. After a wetting agent has been applied, a notched test specimen is exposed to tensile stress at a high temperature (80 °C). The minimum service life for PE 100-RC fittings must be > 8760 hours acc. to PAS 1075. In contrast to this, the required minimum service life for PE 100 components acc. to DVS 2205-1 is just 300 hours.

IPS & Kessel - All Ready at The Pump Centre Conference.

 IPS & Kessel at The Pump Centre Conference

Our guys have been working hard and are ready to welcome delegates to the Pump Centre Conference in Telford today.  Dave, Alan & Saul will be on hand to discuss how the KESSEL range of market leading lifting stations, hybrid stations and back water protection valves can help prevent this....

KESSEL drainage systems offer cost effective, energy saving reliable flood protection for your property. Prevention is better than cure'.....well that's certainly true when it comes to protecting our buildings and properties from water and sewage backflow.

With the frequency of heavy rainfall predicted to increase, effective backwater prevention devices are becoming an essential component in the battle against property flooding 

Not only that but local authorities and insurance companies require such protection!

Typical areas that benefit from backwater protection

  • Toilets
  • Bathrooms
  • Wet Rooms
  • Kitchens
  • Laundry rooms
  • Basements
  • Garages

What type of buildings would benefit from using Kessel backwater protection valves and Hybrid Lifting Stations?

  • Houses, Flats, Apartments
  • HMO's
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping Malls
  • Sports/Leisure Centres
  • Schools/Universities
  • Hospitals
  • Any building where there is even a remote danger from flooding 

Kessel sets standards in backwater protection 

Kessel have been manufacturing innovative drainage products for 45 years.

With more than 100 patents and registered designs, the Kessel brand is acknowledged as one of the market leaders.

Pump Centre Conference - Focus on Kessel - Ecolift XL – Reliability & Efficiency – The Greener Solution that delivers peace of mind!

Kessel Ecolift XL @ The Pump Centre Conference

The Kessel Ecolift XL uses the efficiency of the natural gradient during normal operation and only uses its pumps during times of backwater or flooding, pumping the building’s wastewater via a bypass directly into the surcharged sewer pipe.

Reliable operation
In the event of backwater, the motor-driven backwater flaps close and provide maximum flood protection to the building. The pneumatic level sensor assures accurate pump operation and provides an additional back-up alarm.

Ecolift XL is available with pumping capacities of 1.5 kilowatt to 4.5 kilowatt. In addition, KESSEL also offers solutions tailor-made to customer requirements. The hybrid lifting station can be used for free-standing set-up connected directly to the outlet of a grease separator for example, or for outdoor underground installation.

Low-noise operation

Despite the mechanical design and insulation of traditional lifting stations they are still a constant source of noise since every liter of a building’s wastewater needs to be pumped out. In contrast, the Ecolift XL uses the natural gradient to drain waste from the building and only activates the pumps during backwater. This means that pumping operation noise only occurs in exceptional cases. This is an advantage not only for apartment blocks with basement apartments, but also for commercially or public used buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals and residential homes for the elderly.

Installation in an inspection chamber also possible

The Ecolift XL is designed to a high-quality standard, the polymer inspection chamber is suitable both for installation in the ground or in concrete. The chamber is resistant to groundwater up to 3 metres and can be built up to a height of five metres. The chamber is available with an access opening of 600 millimetres in diameter and now also in a new version with a diameter of 800 millimetres.

This year our National Product Manager, Dave Whalley will be joined by Alan Sowerby and they really hope to see visitors “flooding” to our stand at the Pump Centre Conference, where they can learn more about technical specification, IPS first class service and KESSEL accredited training by the only person qualified to give training in the UK – our product manager.

IPS Get Ready for Pump Centre Conference 2018

Following our successful attendance at the Pump Centre Conference in 2017 IPS Flow Systems based in County Durham have been preparing to return in 2018 to share details on the KESSEL range of market leading lifting stations, hybrid stations and back water protection valves.

For three years IPS systems have been an official export partner of KESSEL AG and are sole distributors in the UK & Ireland.

You can prevent this!

Come and See IPS & Kessel at the Pump Centre Conference

With the frequency of heavy rain only likely to increase, flood prevention should be high on everyone's agenda. In the UK it rains A LOT, and heavy down pours can leave homes and premises vulnerable to floods and flood damage. KESSEL pumping stations are designed to STOP sewer water returning into the building through the sewerage system. The technology in the stations closely monitors flow so that back flow cannot occur.

KESSEL drainage systems offer cost effective, energy saving reliable flood protection for your property.

Our core stock levels allow us to offer next day delivery service nationwide and we have developed a network of service partners throughout the UK. Our National Product Manager, Dave Whalley will be joined at this years event by Alan Sowerby and they are hoping to see visitors 'flooding' to our stand, where they can learn more about technical specification, IPS first class service and KESSEL accredited training.

Sprinklers and Tower Blocks. A Time to Talk. A Time to Act.

Fire broke out on the 14th of June 2017 at the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block of public housing flats in North Kensington. 71 died. 70 more were injured.

Big picture discussions about what should have been done in the past and what to do in the future make the headlines. The public, quite rightly, want to get past the reviews and the unpicking as quickly as possible. They want action. This should never have happened and this must never happen again.

Here at IPS we think similarly. Whilst we won’t get into any political aspect of this occurrence on this forum, we will agree wholeheartedly that this must not happen again. However we are keen to highlight that the governments headline regarding the legislative changes they are about to impose – that retro fitting sprinklers to all UK high-rise flats is to be compulsory – is not the whole story.

Just as important as what needs to be done – is how.

Measure twice. Cut once.

Box-ticking can be deadly. Not all cladding is the same. This is clear. And the same goes for sprinkler systems. The careful prescription of the right kind of system requires discussion block-by-block. There is no one size fits all. We should know – we’ve been providing installer training and parts for 20 years.

It is important to point out at this juncture that this blog story is not a marketing piece. IPS does not fit sprinkler systems. But we do have a view on how the decisions are made as to which sprinkler systems are installed.

It’s hard when new legislation shifts a default position. Because whoever is overseeing will, and we understand this to a degree, look for an approach that is fast and all encompassing. All we are encouraging is a little discussion, by whoever is commissioning with those that know, about the best systems for each individual dwelling.

The most cost effective. The least disruptive to install. Lightweight making them easy to handle during transportation and installation. Accepted by all leading insurers. These are important. But so too are effective performance. How long the systems last. Failure rates. Safety issues.

It feels strange writing like this. Worrying that specification will not be correct. Worrying that lives will be put at risk in this area or any area like this. However history tells us that, sadly, shortcuts are taken.

If any specifiers or installers would like to chat to us impartially to explore how to get this right – please call our Freephone number on 0800 975 7971.

IPS Flow Systems and the Power of Saying No.

This short blog is prompted by something we have been pondering recently. It's how we've made decisions as we have grown.

It’s to do with the things we said yes to. And the things we said no to.

Growth is Good. But Choosing How to Grow is Key.

Over our 25 years, IPS has been faced with many brilliant opportunities. New suppliers, new markets, new products, new people and new ways of working. Our business is an adventure. We love what we do and we look to improve every single day. But we only say ‘yes’ to things that support what we were born to do.

IPS Flow Systems was born to satisfy any organisation's mission-critical fluid handling, management and media movement requirements. Nothing more, nothing less.

So we say ‘yes’ to innovation aligned to this goal. We say yes to suppliers that care about the quest for perfection in this specialist area as much we do. And we say yes to experts that want to work with and for us that are likewise obsessed by our mission.

But we are defined just as vividly by that which we say no to.

The Power of Saying No.

IPS Flow Systems can expertly diagnose need and prescribe piping, systems, products, technical support, training for installers, flowmeters, fixings and supports, hand tools and welding equipment and more – all in the specialist area of fluid handling. We have never diversified.

For years we have said no to wonderfully innovative ideas and products that sit outside of our specialist areas. Some of them may have been extremely profitable in the short term. But they would have diluted our focus in our specialist area in the long term. The result? We know what we're doing because we do what we know. We worry when an organisation broadens it’s focus. We worry because we don’t know what it’s best at. We don't know it’s first love. We worry that it’s customers in one area are not getting the quality that they are in another.

So if you want innovation and expertise born from time-proven loyalty in just one specialist area, IPS Flow Systems – it’s a yes from us (and you too).

The Benefits of Fire Sprinklers

There are so many benefits to having a fire sprinkler system fitted. The most beneficial has to be the life saving benefit. This blog article provides the many benefits of having fire sprinklers installed in your home or property.

Think of fire sprinklers as the equivalent to having a firefighter ready, primed and waiting in every room of your property.

Not only do fire sprinkler systems provide a very high level of protection there are a number of areas in which their cost of installation can be mitigated.

Here are just some of the benefits of installing fire sprinklers in your home or property.

Always on protection
Fire sprinklers operate 24/7 giving you complete and total peace of mind.

Sprinklers save lives
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has no record of more than two deaths in a fire when the building had a functional sprinkler system in place.

Reduce fire damage
They offer a reduction in fire damage - fire sprinkler systems can contain and extinguish a fire in less time than it may take the Fire and Rescue Service to attend the fire. There is also reduced heat and smoke damage when the fire is extinguished at an early stage.

Reduce property damage
They stop fires before they damage the property - fire sprinklers are primarily designed to save lives, but because they control fires so quickly they also significantly reduce damage to properties.

Reduce business downtime
They assist business continuity - a fire sprinkler system ensures a faster return to business following a fire.

Provide fast reaction
The fire is controlled quickly - sprinkler system in around 2 minutes, Fire and Rescue Service attendance up to 8 minutes. Plus fires in buildings with sprinkler systems have usually been suppressed before the firemen arrive.

Offer the best protection
Fire sprinklers are proven to be more effective at protecting buildings than fire extinguishers and smoke alarms. Sprinklers don’t rely on people being on-hand to operate fire extinguishers or knowing what to do; people can focus on evacuating the building while the fire is automatically supressed and ultimately extinguished.

Reduce insurance premiums
Buildings protected by a fire sprinkler system are safer. Sprinkler controlled fires are less damaging than fires in non-sprinklered buildings. This usually results in insurance underwriters offering a reduced premium for properties protected by sprinklers.

Sprinkler heads can be powder coated to blend in with your building’s colour scheme so that they are almost unnoticeable until they are needed.

Eco friendly
Fire sprinkler systems use less water (some 400x less) than fire and rescue services.

Relatively inexpensive
Especially if you use a CPVC fire sprinkler system. These systems are affordable, quick to install, and offer low downtime whilst being fitted.

Low maintenance
Once installed, fire sprinkler systems are actually relatively low maintenance. They only require inspections on an annual basis. Plus the industry claims a service life of around 40 years, but it is well known that there are many sprinkler systems from the 1930s which are still operational.

If you own or operate a commercial building, then the safety of the property and its occupants is of paramount importance. When you consider that there are over 100 commercial building fires in the UK every single day, getting appropriate fire protection systems in place before the worst happens is an essential.

Yet despite all of the above benefits, a recent survey of over 100 businesses revealed that only 35% had any kind of fire prevention plan. Too many business owners overlook the importance of a sprinkler system and go without.

You can read more about the IPS Flow Systems CPVC fire sprinkler piping range here.

New For 2018 - inoxPRES by Raccorderie Metalliche is now available in larger sizes

New for 2018, Raccorderie Metalliche (RM) have extended their range of inoxPress Stainless Steel Pressfit to include two new larger sizes, 139mm & 168mm.  

InoxPres Now Available in Larger Sizes - 139.7mm & 168.3mm

The complete RM Pressfit range of Stainless Steel (InoxPres), Carbon Steel (SteelPres), and Copper/Bronze (AESPres), is now available from IPS Flow Systems.

What makes  IPS and RM pressfit different?

Quite simply, its Quality, Reliability & Service!

RM has over 20 years production experience of pressfit systems and is backed by over 60 international approvals; offering specifiers and installers a brand that they can trust! 

The RM Pressfit system offers some unique features including a patented O-Ring Design!

Standard press systems use traditional circular O-Rings which have a more vertical profile, this can result in potential damage as pipe is inserted into the fitting, the O-Ring being dislodged and  giving a greater area for deposits collect.

RM, designed a patended O-Ring which sits lower down in the fitting, cannot be dislodged and has a greater surface area (20%).

Pressing is a quick and easy method of installing pipe and fittings however, IPS are committed to ensuring that the materials are installed correctly - that's why we offer training on the installation of press systems.

Its not rocket science, but we like to ensure that installations are carried out to manufacturers recommendations.

IPS offer a skills card to all those who attend a training session - these can be done prior to a project starting.

For more information, please visit our website or contact our sales office on 0191 5213111

IPS & RM Pressfit for Safety, Speed, Reliability, Service & Training
