4N Products now produce and manufacture prefabricated fittings suitable for the potable water and the irrigation industries. All fittings are welded by a certified welder.
Butt welding (or butt fusion) jointing is a thermofusion process which involves the simultaneous heating of the ends of two components which are to be joined until a melt state is attained on each contact surface, thereby producing a permanent, economical and flow-efficient connection.
The two surfaces are then brought together under controlled pressure for a specific cooling time and homogeneous fusion is formed upon cooling. The resultant joint is resistant to end thrust and has comparable performance under pressure to the pipe.
This method of jointing requires an electrically heated plate to raise the temperature of the pipe ends to the required fusion temperature and is used for PE63, PE80 and PE100 grades of material for pipe of size 32mm and above of the same Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR). When joining pipes using butt welding techniques.
