Electrofusion sockets are designed for homogeneous welding of pipes and fittings.
The electrofusion socket is placed onto the two pipe ends to be joined together. The integrated electrofusion filament is then heated to the appropriate welding temperature by means of electric power.
SIMOFUSE® Piping System Modules are designed for efficient installation, particularly in cramped conditions.
The individual modules are welded together by means of electrofusion filaments that are integrated within the pipe walls – for an absolutely watertight fit and a high tensile-strength bond.
The welded joint can withstand operating pressures of up to 8 bar (SDR 11) / 5 bar (SDR 17), operating temperature of 20°C.
When applying the method of heated-tool butt welding in accordance with DVS Guideline 2207-1, the ends of the pipes – following appropriate machining and plane-parallel alignment – are held against the heated tool at a predefined pressure and subsequently heated to the requisite welding temperature at a reduced pressure.
After removing the heated tool, the pipe ends are welded together at a predefined pressure to create an integral, permanently tight joint.
