  With the increasing demand of Medium density polyethylene (MDPE) pipes for gas transmission, the safety concern related with welding defects is becoming a serious matter. In this paper, experimental burst tests and finite element analyses were employed to study butt fusion welded MDPE pipe joints with spherical and planar defects of various sizes. Butt-fusion, BF, welding method is used to join the different parts of HDPE pipes. In the case of test specimens taken from un-welded pipe a necking phenomenon before failure appears at different.

  The integrity of high density polyethylene (HDPE) piping and fusion joints are a topic of interest to the nuclear industry, regulators, ASME code, and the plastics pipe industry. The ASME Code Case N has been approved and addresses the use of HDPE in safety related applications.   This videos demonstrates the butt-fusion welding procedure for polyethylene (PE) pipes. For butt-fusion jointing of Protecta-Line and Secura-Line pipes, it .

  Since medium density polyethylene (MDPE) pipes are increasingly used in the gas industry, welding defects are becoming a safety concern. In this study, butt fusion welded MDPE pipe joints with spherical and planar defects of various sizes were studied by experimental tensile tests and finite element analysis. These defects were considered for simulating lack of bonding during the welding. The primary objective of this paper is to depict the mechanical behavior of welded and unwelded high-density polyethylene (HDPE), pipes to provide the designer with reliable desig.

Structural integrity of butt fusion welded polyethylene pipes - a review [pdf / MB] Member Report / TWI Industrial Member Report Summary / M J Troughton and G S Booth.

Butt fusion welding is the name given to hot plate welding of thermoplastic pipes. It is one of two main techniques for the fusion joining of polyethylene gas and water pipe.

The Process. The heating phase, sometimes referred to as 'bead up', is where the pipe ends are pressed against a. This paper describes an investigation into the effect of insufficient homogenization of pigmented resin in polyethylene (PE) pipes on the integrity of the subsequent butt fusion joints and the development of a test to quantify the amount of windows in the pipe.

Analysis was carried out on a number of PE pipes, made using both pre-compounded and in-line compounded resin on the same pipe Author: Changyi Yu, Mike Troughton, Amir Khamsehnezhad, Xiang Zhang. Pipe structure - whereas in butt fusion welding the pipes to be joined must have the same wall thickness, with electrofusion a difference in wall thickness can be accommodated.

Electrofusion can also be used to join certain typesof multiple layer pipes, e.g. nylon lined polyethylene pipe for the conveyance of fuel.

BUTT FUSION JOINTING OF POLYETHYLENE PRESSURE PIPES 03 The Butt Fusion Technique The butt fusion technique refers to the method by which the square-cut ends of two pipes are first cleaned, then heated by pressing the pipes against a hot plate, after which the plate is removed and the molten pipe ends pressed together and allowed to cool.

The strength of a polyethylene pipe system depends on the strength of the pipe, the associated injection moulded fittings and also on the integrity of any joints within the pipe system. Mirror plate butt fusion jointing (1) is widely used for jointing polyethylene pipe systems, and previous studies have examined how its strength compares to the.

Specifying Butt Welding of Polyethylene Pipe Systems June This document provides assistance to those involved in preparing specifications for the butt welding of PE pressure pipe systems. The purpose is to make suggestions which can help in the creation of specifications but is not intended to provide a template for specifications.

This. Table3. Recommended values for the heating tool butttfusion welding of pipes fusion welding of pipes and fittings from HDPE, at an ambient temperature of approximately 20 8C and f approximately 20 C and moderate air flow (Interim values have to be interpolated).polated).

2 3 4 5 NominalNominal JoiningJoining. HDPE pipe is extremely durable, and relatively expensive compared to other pipe, such as PVC. HDPE pipe is generally used underground and with a high rate of flow of whatever is being transported.

It would not typically be used in a small scale system, like a home or a school or other general building. Integrity Fusion Products is the manufacturer of the IntegriFuse brand of high density polyethylene – HDPE – fittings and equipment which are sold solely through our distribution partners.

Intelligent Welder Series (IWS) are PLC Based Hydraulic HDPE PIPE JOINTING MACHINE HDPE PIPE WELDING MACHINE BUTT FUSION WELDING. Structural Integrity Research Foundation; The current practice for assuring the quality of butt fusion joints in polyethylene (PE) pipes during installation is by recording the welding parameters used, together with a visual inspection of the welded joint, supplemented by the destructive testing of welds on a sample basis using a short-term.

Electrofusion welding and butt fusion welding are common methods for joining polyethylene pipes used for water and gas distribution. Because of the wide use of these two methods in infrastructure engineering, welded pipe joints and pipe materials should.

Generic Butt Fusion Joining Procedure for Field Joining of Polyethylene Pipe. TR Decker Court, SuiteIrving, TX Phone: Fax: The effect of welding pressure and surface contaminants on butt fusion in a commercial polyethylene gas pipe was studied by measuring the slow crack growth resistance of the joint.

Two weld. Summarises the major national, international and UK industry standards which are used for butt fusion, electrofusion and socket fusion welding of polyethylene pipe. Standards for pipes and fittings, joining procedures, testing and equipment are included.

Butt weld 2. Socket joint a. Electrofusion b. Hot iron socket 3. Saddle joint a. Electrofusion b. Hot iron socket The butt fusion technique is a simple one whereby the two ends of the pipes to be joined are trimmed flat and square to each other and then heated using a flat heater plate under controlled temperature, time and fusion pressure.

Butt fusion welding is one of the simplest and most effective welding methods for polyethylene pipes [1][2] [3], compared with other methods such as friction stir welding [4][5][6], ultrasonic.

This document outlines the procedures for joining polyethylene pipe & fittings by butt fusion. Materials that have been pre-qualified to be joined by this fusion procedure are within the nominal melt index range of to gm/10 minutes (°C/ Kg), or a high load melt flow of 6 to 17 gm/10 minutes (°C/ Kg), and.Verification of butt fusion weld quality in large diameter PE water pipes.
