About Q-Fusion Fittings
An alternative form of welding PE is the electrofusion system where heating elements are embedded in PE fitting sockets. These sockets form part of a coupling or other fittings and require an electrical input from a welding machine to produce a welded joint. The wide range selection of high quality joining systems, machines, tools and accessories is representative of an informed and solution approach to our customers needs in water, gas, irrigation and waste water utility market.
A portable welding machine connected to a power source provides a current source of the correct voltage and duration, which is applied to the terminals on the coupling or socket. This causes the melting surfaces of socket and pipe to be melted to give a fused contiguous whole. The electrofusion process unlike butt fusion can be used to join pipes and fittings of different SDR or wall thickness.
The Q-Fusion equipment can be supplied with a built in data-recording system to give full traceability of individual welds. Electrofusion permits a safe, systematic, economic and efficient fully welded installation for both buried and above-ground PE piping systems. Q-Fusion electrofusion products are individually sealed in PE bags and packaged in cartons to protect them from UV radiation, oxidation and general contamination. Additionally they are supplied with a Barcoded label that contains all relevant product information, traceability and fusion welding parameters required for joining.Back to browsing
