What is Electrofusion?

Electrofusion is a popular welding technique used in civil infrastructure, mining and plumbing projects. This method is used to join both medium- and high-density polyethylene piping. It can also be used on other types of plastic piping. Electrofusion uses special fittings that have built-in electric heating elements as a way to weld the joint together.

 

The Process

The method works by first cleaning the ends of the pipes that will be joined. They are then inserted into the electrofusion fitting and a voltage is applied for a fixed time. The built-in heating coils are then able to melt the inside of the fitting and outside of the pipe wall. This welds them together to create a strong, durable joint. Once the assembly is cooled a homogenous, strong joint is created. When properly made, the resulting joint is as strong as the original pipe and can withstand all the loads that are applied during routine installation.

 

When Is Electrofusion Suitable?

Electrofusion is an innovative technique that provides many benefits, such as ease of installation and low costs. If you're on the fence about electrofusion, please consider the following factors:

  • Accessibility: Generally, electrofusion is a more practical solution in situations where there are accessibility constraints, such as trenches.
  • Material: Electrofusion is also used to weld pipes made of different materials.
  • Structure: Electrofusion does not require the pipes to have the same wall thickness.
