PE pipes are polyethylene plastic pipes. There are two ways to connect PE pipes: one is electrofusion connection, including electrofusion socket connection and electrofusion saddle connection; the other is hot fusion connection, including hot fusion socket Connection, hot melt saddle connection, hot melt butt connection. So, how to choose in the pipeline connection?

 

How to choose electric fusion connection and hot fusion connection for PE pipeline

Connection method: electric fusion connection/hot fusion connection

A special electric welding machine is used to control the current tube flowing through the resistance wire buried in the tube to make the tube heat up reasonably, heating the connection interface between the tube and the tube

It is heated to 210°C through a special connecting plate, so that both ends of the welding line are heated and melted by the heating plate and drawn out of the heating plate, while quickly connecting the two ends, by maintaining a certain pressure, the connection is made after cooling

Scope of application

Small diameter gas pipeline system

advantage

 

The human factors of electrofusion connection are reduced, the quality is stable and reliable, the construction efficiency is high / the connection process and equipment tools are relatively simple, the operation is convenient, and the quality is stable

Disadvantages

The manufacturing technology requirements of fused pipe fittings are high, the cost is relatively high, and the operation technology requirements are strict / the three factors of temperature, pressure and time need to be strictly controlled

How to choose electric fusion connection and hot fusion connection for PE pipeline

Note for PE pipe connection:

1. First of all, the appearance and material of the connecting pipes and fittings should be checked, and inferior or damaged pipes should not be used;

2. Adopt the corresponding special heating tool according to the form of the pipe interface, can not use open flame to heat pipe fittings;

3. When using the hot-melt connection method, it is recommended to use the same material pipe to connect to ensure the connection quality;

4. Before connecting, sanitary clean the connecting parts of the pipe and pipe fittings to prevent the doping of foreign bodies from causing unreliable pipe connection;

5. After heating the pipeline, the connection can only be made when the temperature at both ends of the connection is consistent;

6. In cold climate or windy weather, protective measures should be taken or the connection process should be adjusted;
