What truly separates HDPE from other pipe materials is that when it is fused together (using a wide variety of standard and custom components, fittings and joining systems) it creates one homogenous system that matches the same technical and environmental specifications as the HDPE pipe. This single system design maximizes the benefits provided by the HDPE pipe and reduces risk of leaks, increases flow of liquid inside the pipe and reduces the overall cost of system implementation.
Pipefusion is a trusted advisor in the field of HDPE and employ subject matter experts that excel at systems design sourcing any and all components that allow engineers and contractors the flexibility to design pipe systems that meet the needs of their customer’s application. We can source a large selection of industry-standard fittings and components that can be fused using a variety of fusion techniques or connected mechanically.
We source fittings from an extensive network of manufactures and suppliers across Canada and the United States. We offer fast, professional, reliable service at very competitive prices. If we cannot source a fitting for you, we will manufacture it to your design specifications in our fabrication shop. Check out our Fabricated Fittings section for non standard fitting information.
Electrofusion is a method of joining HDPE and other plastic pipes with special fittings that have built-in resistive wire which is used to weld the joint together. The pipes to be joined are trimmed, cleaned, inserted into the electrofusion fitting (with a temporary clamp if required) and a voltage (typically 40V) is applied using a device called an electrofusion processor. The processor controls how much voltage is applied, and for how long, depending on the fitting in use. As current is applied to the resistive wire, the coils heat up and melt the inside of the fitting and the outside of the pipe wall which weld together producing a very strong homogeneous joint. The assembly is then left to cool for a specified time. The joints produced tend to be more reliable than threaded fittings sealed with O-rings.
Pipefusion has the ability to source butt fusion fittings in a wide variety of sizes and types, including:
