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.
Socket fusion is distinguished from butt-welding by using custom-shaped and sized heating plates rather than a basic flat surface. These heads allow for more surface contact, reducing the time needed to heat and fuse the pipe. Socket fusion joins pipe and fittings together, rather than simply joining pipe to pipe. It requires less pressure than butt-welding and is more commonly used on smaller sizes of pipe (4″ or less). Socket welding has additional advantages of requiring less machinery and is more portable than the heavier equipment required for butt fusion.
Pipefusion has the ability to source socket fusion fittings in a wide variety of sizes and types, including:
