HDPE fittings refers to a range of jointing fittings and adaptors that suit HDPE pipe. These fittings are made from PE100 HDPE material, and are designed for HDPE pipelines. The large range and types of PE fittings reflects the versatility and adaptability of HDPE pipe.
PE pressure fittings provide a solid joint, giving both the installers and the end user confidence that the pipeline will maintain it’s strength over time. PE pipe is extremely versatile and can be field bent to a radius 25 times the nominal pipe diameter (SDR11 and SDR17 ≥20°C). e.g: 125mm Acu-Tech HD-PE100 can be cold formed in the field to a 3.2 metre radius. This can provide a major cost saving compared to other systems which require fittings and thrust blocks or restraints for minor directional changes. No anchor or thrust blocks are needed to prevent joint blow-out when using heat fusion welded jointing. Correctly made heat fusion joints may be expected to last the life of the system and withstand thrust/end loads equal to the strength of the pipe/ fitting without adding external restraint or thrust blocking.
Poly pressure pipe is manufactured in Western Australia in diameters ranging from 20 mm to 800 mm and can be provided with co-ex jackets or stripes to assist with pipeline identification. Acu-Tech also supplies HDPE welding equipment, electrofusion and butt weld fittings from 20 mm to 800 mm from our vast range of stock.
Some of the different types of HDPE fittings are:
- PE electrofusion fittings have two small plugs protruding from the fitting, and are used to join HDPE pipe using an electrofusion welder.
- PE compression fittings and rural poly compression fittings use a screw clamp type fitting with a rubber seal, for low pressure applications.
- Butt weld/short spigot fittings are used for joining PE pipelines with butt welding equipment.
- Long spigot and fabricated fittings are like short spigot fittings, but can be joined with either electrofusion or butt welding machinery.
- Acu-Drain HDPE drain pipe fittings are low-pressure fittings with a thin wall, made specifically for non-pressure drainage applications.
- HDPE transition fittings and BSP threaded adaptor fittings are used to join HDPE pipe to a different type of pipe.
