It is important to remain fully aware that the time used for each joint is immediately linked to the cooling procedures utilized throughout the fusion process. Unless we follow the times defined in the ASTM guidelines, the overall efficiency of the workplace will be decreased. Therefore, increasing this cooling period is the most practical way to improve the fusion cycle.
The Datalogger uses a proprietary cooling algorithm to measure it in real-time, taking into account times that are most efficient depending on the products we use, environmental conditions and time of thermal immersion. This algorithm is an equation that shows the exact times it takes to cool the center of a pipe, making it safe to handle and allowing you to move on to the next joint.
Experts from McElroy have completed thousands of fusion joint trials and evaluation with the help of researchers. These experiments evaluate thousands of data points and computer fluid dynamics simulations to better understand the tube core temperatures. Hence, the engineered cooling system of McElroy conforms to ASTM F2620-19, Note 10. These tests assist McElroy with creating the algorithm, which predicts time safely, and accurately for the core cooling of a pipe wall with a joint resistance expected at that time and temperature. It means handling is much easier and safer for operators.
