This 240v fusion starter is an extremely convenient device for connecting pipes from 200mm-315mm in diameter using an HDPE electro-fusion fitting. This 240v unit uses the extreme heat and pressure produced during welding to make simple, reliable, rigid joints between pipes. The heat required to make the joint comes from flowing a constant electrical current through the embedded heater wires within the sleeve fitting, which is placed around the two pipes to be joined. The pressure required to make the joint is obtained via the shrinking of the fitting under welding conditions. The shrinking process does not alter the internal bore of the joint because the ends and the centre of the fitting are deliberately kept cold during the welding process. This ensures a strong, reliable professional joint. Once the joint is completed, the heater wires remain encased in the HDPE so there is no chance of corrosion. The connecting sleeve fitting must be fitted evenly between both pipes and the pipes must have clean cut, straight, burr-free edges to provide the most reliable, long-lasting joint.
