Electro Fusion Weld Fittings
Electro Fusion Weld Fittings are assembled by hand and an electric current is applied via an Electro Fusion Welder.
These fittings enable one or more joints to be assembled and aligned or adjusted prior to welding. This makes the installation of large bore pipework extremely quick and simple plus giving the advantage of a fully welded system.
Also included in this range are "Underpressure air saddles" which are designed for under pressure connections thus eliminating the need to shut down plant and equipment for new connections. They are particularly useful in large plants with 24 hour operations.
Fittings for electro fusion comply with AS4129 and carry a standards mark licence under a Quality Assurance System in accordance with ISO 9002. The fittings incorporate a resistor in one of the terminals which is specific to that fitting. The automatic control box reads the resistor and sets and welds the correct time, avoiding operator error. Fittings are also labelled for barcode reading and manual setting times. Rising melt indicators confirm successful completion of weld.
