Product Description

An electrofusion test end cap is used to cap off the end of a HDPE pipe, with a male or female BSP  thread to allow for line or pressure testing. With a size range from 90 mm to 315 mm, electrofusion test end cap fittings come in SDR 11 (which also suits SDR 13.6 & SDR 17). Electrofusion test end cap fittings are made from PE100 material with a precisely moulded energising coil of wire, ensuring uniform melting for a strong electrofusion joint and the minimisation of welding and cooling times. SDR 11, SDR 13.6 and SDR17 electrofusion testing end caps are rated to PN16 water and 1000 kPa gas.

All EF test end caps come with either a 3/4″ (20 mm) BSP brass threaded fitting or a 1″ (25 mm) BSP brass threaded fitting. Electrofusion test end cap PE fittings may also be known as electrofusion test end caps or EF pipe testing end caps. Test end cap electrofusion fittings are suitable for use for HDPE pipe, and welded with an electrofusion pressure welder.

Training for Plumbers – Electrofusion Jointing for HDPE pressure and drainage pipes

As with welding carried out on any material used for engineering purposes, fusion welding of polyethylene (HDPE) for plumbing and drainage pipe systems is a skilled operation which must be carried out by suitably trained and certified tradespersons.

Training and accreditation is mandatory for plumbers under the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) as both AS/NZS 3500.1 Plumbing and drainage – Water services and AS/NZS 3500.2 Plumbing and drainage – Sanitary plumbing and drainage contain references to AS/NZS 2033 Installation of polyethylene pipe systems.  AS/NZS 2033 Clause 4.2 Fusion Jointing specifies “Only trained and certified operators shall carry out fusion jointing”.

Acu-Tech facilitates Nationally Accredited training courses covering fusion welding procedures through Polyweld Tech Academy which is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
