Electrofusion fittings are a type of HDPE resin pipe fitting . Plastic pipes become loose over time and dents can cause leaks to happen. An electrofusion fitting provides an alternative way of repairing your plastic piping by allowing for the connection to be made without using other expensive tools. The next time you need to fix a leak or tighten up a connection, consider using electrofusion fittings.
What is HDPE electro fusion?
HDPE electro-fusion is a process that is used to create a plastic joint between two pieces of HDPE. This process allows for a strong and permanent joint that still maintains its flexibility and ductility.
The most common use of HDPE electro fusion is in plumbing applications, where pipes must be connected to one another in order to carry water. The process involves applying pressure to the ends of two pieces of HDPE pipe while they are submerged in an electrolyte solution. When this is done, an electrical current will pass through the pipe and cause them to fuse together.
This produces a joint that is stronger than any other joint in the world because it is created by fusing two objects together instead of simply bonding them together with glue or other adhesives. The result is a permanent connection that will not come apart unless you intentionally try to pry it apart with tools.
How do HDPE electrofusion fittings work?
Electrofusion fittings are used in the water, wastewater and natural gas industries. They are used to connect PVC pipe and various other types of polyethylene pipes together. HDPE electrofusion fittings have been around for over 30 years and have proven to be very reliable and durable.
Electrofusion fittings work by using electricity to melt the end of one pipe into another pipe, creating a permanent joint that cannot be separated without destroying the fitting. This process allows for a more secure connection than mechanical joints such as nuts and bolts or flanges. The design of the fitting ensures that no seam exists between two pieces of pipe, which would otherwise leak if not properly sealed with tape or putty.
Electrofusion fittings come in many different configurations including:
Y-Connectors: Y-connectors are used when you want to combine two pipes into one larger pipe. It is important to note that these fittings cannot be reversed, so it is important that you purchase the correct configuration before purchasing your fitting kit from us!
How are electrofusion fittings tested?
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic with a high level of resistance to wear and tear. It has good chemical resistance, but it’s not as strong as PVC.
Electrofusion fittings are tested in accordance with the industry standards for pressure testing, including ASTM F2975-16 and NFPA 25 (Classes 1 and 2). This ensures that they are safe for use in your home.
The process is also tested by Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), which gives it an approval rating of “UL Listed” on the package. This means it meets all the requirements outlined in UL’s Code for Plumbing Fixtures and Appliances (ANSI/NSF 61).
HDPE electrofusion fittings can be used to join a plastic piping system. They are safe and durable.
The HDPE electrofusion fittings come with a body made of HDPE which is a safe, durable and flexible material. The fitting has a collar ring that is fitted on the pipe to provide an excellent sealing surface. The fitting also has two wings that can be inserted into the collar rings for joining two pipes together or two fittings together. These wings help in joining two pipes together without using any glue or solder.
These electrofusion hdpe pipe fittings are manufactured using advanced technology and high-quality raw material, which makes it strong, flexible and durable for use in various industries like agriculture, water supply etc. Their excellent performance makes them highly demanded by our clients across the globe.
