HDPE Welding and Jointing
To maximize your system, select the correct type of HDPE Welding and HDPE Pipe Jointing. You can make use of compression fittings/insert fittings which requires no welding or you can make use of stubs, flanges/backing rings or electro-fusion fittings which do require welding. You can also use butt-welding to connect the pipes without using any additional fittings.
|PipeFlo Can Offer The Following:|
|Stubs, Flanges and Backing Rings||HDPE pipes can be flange-jointed with stubs, flanges and backing rings by using HDPE stub and flange ends in conjunction with metal backing plates and a sealing gaskets. benefit of this technique is that it is possible to move the pipes at later stage if stubs and flanges are used. Pipes are usually welded together using stubs, and flanges, which PipeFlo can supply.|
|Butt – Welding||Two pipe-ends brought into contact with a heating element, which are pressed together at specific pressures and duration to create creating a single piece piping solution. The weld is as strong as the original pipe – ideal for high-pressure applications. Pipes are usually butt-welded on site.|
|Electro – Fusion Welding||Electro fusion welding (fusion welded) is where two pipe-ends are fitted and melted into an electro-socket fitting. A heating coil integrated into the electro-socket melts the material surrounding the coils and becomes part of the pipes inserted into the ends of the socket.The weld is as strong as the original pipe – creating a single piece piping solution – ideal for high-pressure applications.|
