Butt fusion machine for plastic welding
What is Butt Fusion?
Butt Fusion is a method of joining forms of a thermoplastic resin wherein the ends of the two pieces are heated to the molten state and then rapidly pressed together to form a homogeneous bond. (from about.com)
How can I rich a joining with Butt Fusion machine?
Butt fusion machine manufatured by Ritmo America allow to join heating the ends of pipes (or some other plastic mterials) surfaces putting them against a heating plate until fusion temperature is reached, pushing the two softened ends against one another, holding under pressure for the prescribed time, and allowing the joint to cool.
Ritmo America's Butt Fusion machine for plastic pipes is the top for a large range of fusion operations.
Butt fusion machine
DELTA series of butt fusion machine is used for butt fusion of Polypropylene (PP) and Polyethylene (PE) pipes and fittings carrying fluids under pressure.
DELTA 160 from 40 mm to 160 mm
DELTA 250 from 75 mm to 250 mm
DELTA 315 from 90 mm to 315 mm
DELTA butt fusion machine consists of: machine body with a bearing frame, four clamps and two hydraulic thrust cylinders with non-drip quick couplings; extractable heating plate (PTFE coated) with electronic adjustable temperature and separate thermometer to read the working temperature; extractable electrically controlled facer with microswitch and a motor protection fuse; facer and heater support. DELTA lines are available in two version: with manual hydraulic gearcase or with “ECP Easy Life” electronic control process gearcase.
MANUAL HYDRAULIC GEARCASE
Electrohydraulic gearcase with a clamp opening and closing lever, maximum pressure and discharge valves, hydraulic hoses with non-drip couplings, a timer for the heating and fusing phase, an electrical panel with power outlets for the facer and heater, an electronic thermoregulator for the control of the working temperature, an acoustic and visual safety indicator, a differential circuit breaker. Available in 110 V or 220 V.
ECP EASY LIFE GEARCASE (220 V)
Electronic Control Process to manage the fusion cycle in a semi-automatic way. The unit features a light touch control panel, it allows a simple and quick selection of the pressure and time data, which can be modified whenever necessery. The butt fusion process keys are logically displayed, therefore making its use easy to understand. The unit allows also the continuous repeat of the fusion cycle, and controls automatically the preset parameters.
Fusion of tee Fusion of elbow Facer Heating plate Delta butt fusion machine can fuse fittings without the need of any additional equipment: elbow, tee, cross and stub-end can be fused by simply taking the fourth clamp off the machine body’s frame. Stub-end with a highly reduced tang can be fused with the help of a stub-end holder tool.
Supplied with: machine body with tool kit; Heating plate; Facer; Gearcase (Manual Hydraulic or ECP Easy Life); Facer and heater support. On request: inserts; stub-end holder; trolley.
