In fact, we offer the largest fleet of butt fusion equipment in the world from leading manufacturers including McElroy, Ritmo and Fusion Equipment. With over 300 machines available in the fleet, every machine completes a full test weld as part of the pre-hire inspection, providing confidence in equipment being delivered in optimum condition. What’s more, all joint data is downloaded and stored for future use.

Completing Butt Fusion Projects Safely and Efficiently

Many of our customers need to complete butt fusion welding for the fusion joining of polyethylene gas and water pipes. For this process to be completed safely and efficiently, it’s absolutely vital that specialist equipment is used. For instance, welding machines need to have sufficient structural strength and hydraulic capacity to achieve high pressure parameters in a safe manner.
