Robert Debré maternal and child protection center in Rueil-Malmaison, France

Owned by the city of Rueil-Malmaison in France, Robert Debré is a medical center providing health care for mothers and children.

The institution decided to introduce Pipetector for its over 20-year-old domestic hot water pipe system to protect it from internal corrosion.

The hot water’s iron-ion content was 0.79 mg/ℓ, and discolored water was also coming out of taps before the installation of Pipetector.

However, six weeks after the installation, the level dropped to 0.29 mg/ℓ, and it further sunk to 0.04 mg/ℓ after 12 weeks, a figure below the French standard for drinking water set at 0.2mg/ℓ.

Pipetector attained the result by terminating the new development of red rust inside the pipework and reducing the existing red rust to black rust that would not dissolve in water.
