Saddle Fusion 101

Saddle or sidewall fusion is utilized in joining a saddle to a pipe side by heating the pipe’s outer surface and the fitting surface. The process makes use of a device to ensure proper regulation of heating, alignment, and force. This process can be carried out while the production of a “hot tap” is pressurized when regulations and the owner of the pipeline allow. The fitting surfaces of the pipe and saddle are heated until they reach a sufficient temperature, which then leads to the removal of the heating tool and the weld being formed. After a cooling cycle, the process is complete.

Along with saddle fusion, we have solutions for socket fusion, including the McElroy Socket Tooling. It provides an ideal method for fittings installation and supports the fusing of pipe from ½” CTS to 4″ IPS (16mm to 125mm).

Optimum Pipe Fusion

The welding of large diameter PE pipes requires special consideration due to the greater weight of the pipe and the force used in welding, which must be tested to achieve durable welding that will stand the test of time and rough conditions. The heating and cooling times are the most critical parameters of pipe welding, so when used in pipe welding or fusion machines, it must be kept to the proper times.

The basic conditions for having professional welding include ensuring that the welding equipment is in good condition and that you have a trained staff, as well as shielding the welding from environmental effects such as wind and rain. In addition, both ends of the pipes to be welded must be heated as required to maintain the correct times and melted material.

PE Pipe Advantages

With only four months left in 2019, you may be thinking about upgrading your pipe solution to polyethylene (PE) for 2020. If you’re on the fence, consider some of the following advantages of this durable, flexible pipe.

With a density of 0.93 and 0.96 g/cm3, PE pipe weights little to nothing. On top of that—and something we’ve mentioned several times before—the pipe provides excellent resistance to rust and corrosion. With these qualities, there is a broad array of chemicals that can be used with this pipe, along with the peace of mind of knowing the pipe will remain intact.

PE pipe is flexible and installation is simple. Even in cold weather, it can still be bent which expedites installation. Furthermore, it can accommodate most irregularities and once it is installed, the pipe can last for numerous decades before needing to be replaced. Maintenance is minimal, which lowers the cost of upkeep.

Fusing PE pipe is a simple process which, combined with its flexibility, creates a cost-effective and robust solution which can be used for multiple purposes.

Streamline the Fusion Process

The ideal environment for Polyethylene (PE) pipe is one where the temperatures stay at about 41 degrees Fahrenheit. While you can perform electrofusion welding operations at temperatures below 41 degrees, you may run into trouble ensuring there is no moisture, which is vital to stave off contamination. During the PE pipe welding process, time is highly critical. A maximum of thirty minutes should go by once scraping is done, or else the risk of pipe oxidation is amplified. PE pipe that has oxidized will not weld properly.

As for electrofusion fittings, it’s best to keep them in their bag until it’s time to weld. Fittings that have been removed from their bag for over thirty minutes may experience oxidation. Oxidation may happen in an unsuccessful joint, which means a potential loss of time and money.

If you’re worried your pipe may be ruined because of the exposure to the harsh ultraviolet rays of the sub, you may wish to look into the groundbreaking Fusion-Tech UV Black Piping by aquatechnik NA. This fusible polypropylene pipe has UV protection built into it which provides maximum pressure handling and temperature capabilities.

The Evolution of HDPE

 

 

Modern polyethylene pipe has become a robust and exceptionally reliable solution utilized in multiple industries for an extensive range of applications. Have you ever been curious about how this versatile pipe evolved? Let’s dive a little deeper into the history.

It was 1933 during the month of March that two organic chemists joined forces to create the material we all know today as polyethylene. The pair were testing a multitude of distinct chemicals and created a white, waxy substance that would play an integral role in the development of polyethylene.
The white substance was a result of the testing of benzaldehyde and ethylene and how they reacted to each other. The container the chemists were using to test began to leak, resulting in an escape of pressure. The white substance would go on to bear a considerable resemblance to plastic. By the end of the decade, the material was patented and was being used.

During the 1950s, polyethylene transitioned into what most people know as high-density polyethylene, also by its common HDPE acronym. This development was a result of the work of German chemist Karl Ziegler. By the mid-1950s HDPE was not being used in pipe production. Ziegler’s work would earn him the prestigious 1963 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
