Acu-Tech Piping Systems fabricates poly Y junctions for branching off a HDPE pipeline. Y junctions are also known as true Y pieces, fabricated junction or forks. Y junctions are fabricated from two pieces of Acu-Tech’s polyethylene pipe, and can be made in any colour and size up to 630 mm. Sometimes called a poly wye, a Y-shaped fitting has three openings and is used to create branch lines out of polyethylene pipe.
The length of HDPE Y Junctions are specified in the PIPA document ‘PE Fabricated Fittings For Pressure Applications: De-rating Requirements’, which states in section 4.3 segmented tees and y junctions: “Fabricated equal and reduced tees and y junctions, manufactured by butt fusion jointing PE pipe segments, shall be produced in accordance to ISO 4427-3 Section B.5. The fitting length shall allow the following (in any combination): the use of clamps required in the case of butt fusion; assembly with an electrofusion fitting; assembly with a socket fusion fitting; the use of a mechanical scraper.”
With a fully equipped plastic fabrication workshop and experienced and qualified operators, Acu-Tech Piping Systems fabricates spools and components from pipe and sheet to client specifications. Our extensive HDPE fabrication capabilities includes sweep bends, shouldered ends, 45 junctions, manifolds, large bore mitred bends and tees, surge tanks, launders, fabricated chutes, true y pieces, equal and reducing tees, and segmented bends ranging in size from 25 mm – 800 mm. For any other requirements and for fabricated items that are less common and not mentioned our catalogue, feel free to contact us and we will gladly assist.
