PRODUCT DETAILS

IPEX electrofusion products are engineered smarter than traditional fusion systems. Manufactured in North America, our couplings feature a unique, exposed coil design that provides a seal stronger than any other electrofusion system on the market. This is achieved for two reasons:

• The heat, created by the electrical current passing through the exposed coil of the IPEX coupling, is transferred directly to the PE pipe, and

• The coil protrudes from the interior surface of the coupling. When the pipe is heated, the coil sinks into it creating a much stronger bond.

As a result of this process, every joint will be sealed precisely to specification, automatically, every time, minimizing the risk of human error. This unparalleled sealing technology has earned our couplings the highest pressure rating in the industry. What’s more, because every joint is as strong as the pipe itself, the IPEX Electrofusion system is ideal for horizontal direct drilling and other trenchless applications.
