Fusion machines are used for the joining of plastic pipe and fittings. These tools can be used to join polypropylene, polyethylene, PVDF and ECTFE pipe. Fusion machines heat up the ends of pipes and fittings, then forces them together to form a bond. Fusion machines support pipe sizes from 1/2" to 20". Applications include pressure or drainage systems handling aggressive and/or high temperature chemicals.
