Electrofusion is a method of joining HDPE and other plastic pipes using special fittings that have built-in electric heating elements which are used to weld the joint together. Our electrofusion fittings containing heating elements, are attached to the pipes and when a voltage is applied to the fittings it welds them together, forming a strong homogenous connection. We provide you to high quality electrofusion fittings. The electrofusion fittings are made of high-density PE 100, to ensure that the internal layer of the fitting and external layer of the pipe are welded together”.
Electrofusion of HDPE uses electrofusion fittings which have small copper wires coiled around the inside. Electric current is then run through those wires using an electrofusion processor in turn melting the HDPE on the inside of the fitting and the outside of the pipe. This type of welding is carried through the electrical resistance inside the fitting, by using the designated welding machine. The parameters to be set like temperature and installation time are on the label and can be read by the machine via the barcode.
The electrofusion method allows to significantly reduce the assembly time and the space needed to make the connection of the pipes. Electrofusion fittings include: couplers, reducers, tees, many more.
