HOW DOES ELECTRO FUSION WORKS?

The characteristics of the fitting to be welded, such as the fusion time, are registered via a barcode on the fitting. An electrofusion control unit (ECU) supplies the electrical energy necessary to heat the coil. When the coil is energized, the material adjacent to it melts and forms an expanding pool which comes into contact with the surface of the pipe. The continued introduction of heat energy causes the pipe surface to melt and a mixing of pipe melt and fitting melt takes place; this is vital to produce a good weld. Following the termination of the heat cycle, the fitting and the pipe are left to cool and the melted material solidifies to form a sound joint.

What is the purpose of HDPE Pipe Fittings?

HDPE pipe is a kind of flexible plastic pipe. It is commonly used to replace deteriorating concrete or steel main pipes. HDPE Fittings are used on HDPE pipe to reverse direction, insert a diagonal or tee, or simply to seal off an endpoint.

What are the applications of HDPE Fittings?

HDPE fittings have been shown to be particularly trustworthy when it comes to high pressure and, in fact, all transmission of water and gas within tubes. They are frequently used in the mining sector, irrigation, plant construction, and public drinking water facilities. HDPE Pipe Fittings are a type of widget that is used to enhance both water and gas networks. While diameters might vary greatly, fittings with a bottom flange larger than 32mm should ideally be strengthened on the outside. Companies usually place a stainless steel ring, for example, around such a fitting to ensure optimum durability.

Why is electrofusion needed?

Electrofusion is a technique of interconnecting MDPE, HDPE, and other plastic pipes that use specific fittings with built-in electric heating sources to fuse the junction together. Electrofusion welding is advantageous since it does not necessitate the use of hazardous or complicated equipment by the operator.

How do Electrofusion Fittings work?

Electrofusion is the most dependable method of joining HDPE pipes. All accessories and Electrofusion Fittings in the HDPE pipe couplings bowl or accessories are provided with an electrically heated coil in this connection. The built-in heating coils subsequently melt the interior of the fitting as well as the exterior of the pipe wall, resulting in a highly strong homogenous union.

What is the ideal material for HDPE Electrofusion?

The most typical pipe linked via HDPE Electrofusion is polyethene pipe. The basic reason for choosing PE pipes in gas distribution is their strong chemical resistance to corrosive elements in carried gas. There are several established PE pipe connection methods; nevertheless, butt fusion welding, electrofusion assembling, and extrusion fabrication methods are broadly utilized.
