It is necessary to be completely aware that the time used by each joint is automatically connected during the fusion process to the cooling process used. The overall productivity of the workplace will be diminished unless we obey the times specified in the ASTM guidelines. Improving this cooling time is also the most realistic means of boosting the fusion cycle.
To calculate it in real-time, the Datalogger uses a patented cooling algorithm, taking into consideration the most opportune times based on what machinery equipment is used, the conditions of the worksite, and thermal submergence time. The algorithm used is an equation that illustrates the precise times it takes to cool a pipe’s middle, making it secure to handle and enabling you to switch to the next joint.
McElroy specialists, with the assistance of researchers, have conducted thousands of fusion joint trials and tests. Thousands of data points and computer fluid dynamics models are analyzed by these studies to help understand the central temperatures of the tunnel. Therefore, McElroy’s engineered cooling system conforms to ASTM F2620-19, Note 10. These experiments help McElroy build the algorithm for the core cooling of a pipe wall with a joint resistance required at that time and temperature, which estimates time safely and reliably. It means handling is much simpler as well as improving safety for operators.
