PE-2708 Medium Density Yellow Gas Pipe
Joining – Polyethylene gas piping may be joined by either heat fusion or mechanical type fittings. Briefly mentioned are the different types of heat fusion. Complete detailed fusion procedure for joining Oil Creek Plastics Gas Pipe is available upon request. If one chooses the use of mechanical type fittings for joining,one should refer to manufacturer’s instructions for proper use of these products.
Socket Fusion – this technique can be done by hand with the minimum use of tools. It consists of simultaneously heating the external surface of the pipe end and internal surface of a socket fitting.
Butt Fusion – with this technique, the use of an application unit must be used. It consists of simultaneously heating the squared ends of matching surfaces, such as pipe to pipe or pipe to fitting.
Sidewall Fusion – with this technique, the use of an application unit must be used. It consists of simultaneously heating both external surface of the pipe and matching surface of a “saddle” type fitting.
