Electrofusion Welding for Rising Main: A Case Study

    At Pipe Testing Services (PTS), our expertise extends beyond testing – we offer comprehensive solutions for installing water infrastructure. Recently, we showcased our electrofusion welding capabilities on a critical project – Here’s the breakdown.

    The Project

    A long-standing client required the installation of a rising main and connection to a pumping station. Ensuring a secure, leak-proof joint was paramount for uninterrupted water supply and mitigating potential environmental impacts.

    Our Approach

    We deployed a team of highly skilled engineers, all with extensive experience in the water industry. We leveraged our specialised electrofusion welding techniques to join high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes seamlessly.

    The electrofusion process relies on precisely controlled electrical heat and fusion between the pipe and fitting surfaces. This meticulous method creates a homogenous, monolithic joint stronger than the pipe itself.

    Our engineers followed stringent procedures, meticulously preparing the pipe ends and aligning the components. Embedded electrical coils then heated the surfaces to the optimal fusion temperature, allowing the materials to meld together under controlled pressure.

    Throughout the process, we monitored temperatures, pressures, and cooling times with state-of-the-art equipment. This attention to detail ensured consistent, high-quality joints meeting all regulatory standards.

    The Outcome

    Our electro fusion welding services delivered a seamless rising main connection to the pumping station. The robust, leak-free joints will withstand the demanding operating pressures and temperatures for years to come.

    The client praised our professionalism, expertise, and commitment to excellence. PTS’s comprehensive solutions, from welding to testing, provided peace of mind and ensured the integrity of their critical water infrastructure.
