Electrofusion requires a fitting with electric heating elements, which is used to weld two pipes together. An electric current is applied to the conductor coil which heats both the fitting and pipes to a molten state, thus fusing them together. Electrofusion fittings are available in virtually all sizes and DR pressure ranges.
HDPE Polyethylene pipe has been utilized for more than 40 years in gas, water and chemical distribution systems, replacing steel and cast iron pipe.
Adaptable for all piping, these fittings are used on HDPE pipe to change direction, insert a lateral or tee, or simply to cap off an end of a line.
Our Transition fittings, in carbon steel, and 306 or 316 stainless steel, are available in weld x weld, threaded, grooved or flanged-end configurations.
Polypropylene is a hydrophobic thermoplastic material; it repels polarized molecules such as water and is able to be heat fused.
McElroy is the industry leader in fusion equipment for HDPE, PP-R, fusible PVC and PA materials. The fusion process, applying heat and pressure, produces a thermally-bonded joint from two sections of pipe.
Electrofusion is a process that joins MDPE and HDPE pipe by providing a controlled electrical current through an element positioned inside a coupling which heats and fuses itself to the pipe, creating a thermally-bonded connection.
Squeeze Tools provide a practical way to shut off the flow of the medium going through the pipe, allowing the user to be able to cut and work on HDPE and steel pipe.
Proper and timely markers are essential for insuring worker safety, protecting the environment and guarding buried facilities and piping systems.
SECOR offers a number of trailers designed for handling, transporting and dispensing coiled pipe.
