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). These tools comply with ASTM pipes F1056, ISO 8085-1 and ISO 4437 standards. The Socket Tooling Kits come in a variety of sizes to suit your unique needs and provide all the required tooling components so you don’t need to order each item separately.

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.

A Brief Look at Socket Welding

The socket welding (or fusion joining) process is used to connect a 20-110 mm diameter suitable tube. It is accomplished by heating the pipe’s external surface and the fitting’s internal surface until the material is fused, and then inserting into the other while the material remains hot. Pipes and welding fittings can be made of PE, PP, PB or PVDF, but the same material can be used by both.

For socket welding, useful hydraulic equipment is available from a diameter of 16 to 110 mm, even with diameters up to 160 in the norm. The welding equipment is connected to the prefixed temperature controlled electrical current and thermostat.

Socket welding is among the many procedures that we can provide tools for. We have an extensive selection of equipment by respected names like McElroy. If you have questions about what tools you may need for the job, we’ll do our best to guide you in the right direction by delivering the right equipment so you can finish the project safely and efficiently.

Optimized Cooling by McElroy Means Better Working Conditions

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.

Save Time with McElroy Machines

When fusing pipe, productivity is a major part of a job done. If you’ve never tried using the pupe fusion machines by names like McElroy, you may be missing out on increasing your pipe fusion substantially.

Let’s use the hydraulic jaws and facer for example. McElroy machines come equipped with an advanced system which powers and clamps down on pipe quickly with the utmost of safety. In standard machines, this process often requires manually tightening down on the pipe, which can take several minutes and, therefore, reduce fusion output. McElroy machine facers are also powered hydraulically, which means lowering and raising it takes mere seconds instead of having to use a crane to remove and put on the facer.

Speaking of hydraulics, the pivoting heater on McElroy machines is powered using the same hydraulics as the jaws and facer. What does this mean for you? It means the heater could be moved into place virtually in seconds. Again, this can save you precious time and help you meet any deadlines or daily quota you have set out to accomplish.

Machinery Equipment Maintenance

Modern fusion machines are capable of performing some heavy duty tasks, and that has a lot to do with the numerous components that work together to achieve results. For workers that are only beginning to become acquainted with these machines, it can prove tricky to master their operation and proper maintenance is of the essence to ensure these machines remain in tip-top working order for years to come. Failure to perform maintenance may result in the machine not working or breaking down, which can lead to hours lost in productivity and possibly having to make costly repairs.

Cleanliness is a simple yet frequently overlooked step that can ensure machines work for years to come. Pipe fusion machines are common in environments where the accumulation of grime and dirt are an everyday occurrence. Corrosion may happen, which only fuels the need for cleanliness. Heaters and facers are susceptible to moisture and dirt exposure, so definitely set up a regular cleaning schedule.

With heaters, butt plates or adapters are often required to ensure they maintain proper working order. Care should be taken to ensure the plates and adapters don’t have scratches. If scratches or gouges are visible, most modern pipe fusion machines feature a design where replacements are made simple.
