Is the circuit connection of the 380V butt welding machine correct, how can it be determined?

Is the circuit connection of the 380V butt welding machine correct, how can it be determined? Recently, a customer inquired about our WP630A butt welding machine, where the heating plate temperature stops rising after reaching 180°C. What could be the reason? In such a situation, the first step is to check if the circuit connection is proper. The following video demonstrates the use of a clamp ammeter for this purpose. Note: If you are unfamiliar with circuits and current measurement, please consult us. Our company has professional electricians and technical personnel who can provide guidance.

What types of plastics are suitable for butt welding machines

Butt welding machines are suitable for most thermoplastic materials, which soften when heated and solidify when cooled.  The following are commonly used types of plastics suitable for hot melt welding:Polyethylene (PE): Polyethylene is a common thermoplastic material used extensively in the manufacturing of plastic bags, bottles, containers, and pipes. Polypropylene (PP): Polypropylene is another widely used thermoplastic material suitable for automotive components, electronic devices, medical instruments, and more. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC): PVC exhibits excellent chemical resistance and heat resistance, making it applicable in construction, wire and cable, pipe manufacturing, and other industries. Polystyrene (PS): Polystyrene is commonly used in packaging, insulation cups, household appliance casings, and other manufacturing applications. Polycarbonate (PC): Polycarbonate offers outstanding impact resistance and transparency, making it popular in the electronics, optical, and medical fields.   Which plastics are not suitable for hot melt welding? Butt fusion welding is not suitable for thermosetting plastics, as these materials undergo irreversible curing after being heated and cannot be softened again. Common examples of thermosetting plastics include epoxy resins, phenolic resins, and unsaturated polyesters. Since thermosetting plastics cannot be re-softened, they cannot be joined using the hot melt welding method.

How to fusion butt welding short PE pipes and fittings?

The professional construction team will make use of steel flanges to assist.The steel flange plate is used as a tool to hold and align short pipes and pipe fitting during the hot melt butt welding process. Its function is to provide a stable and secure connection during hot fusion butt welding of pipes, ensuring they are properly aligned and held in place during welding.This helps to prevent any misalignment or movement of the pipe, which could result in a less-than-robust weld. or even a failure of the hot fusion butt welder.The advantages of using a steel flange plate include its durability and strength, which allows it to withstand the high temperatures and pressures involved in the welding process. Very easy to use, with screw locking for quick and easy installation and removal. Additionally, the flange plate can be reused multiple times, making it a cost-effective solution for welding short pipes and pipe fitting.

What Is The Power Needed For Welping Pipe Fusion Equipment?

When using a generator, the power recommended by Welping is 2 times as that of the pipe fusion machine. The machine's power is displayed on the specification label on the top of hydraulic station.For example, if the hydraulic station power is 10KW, the heating tool power is 1.5KW,and the planing tool is 1KW, then you need 25KW power for generator at least

If The Pipes Are Not Properly Aligned, What Should We Do?

Before butt welding, the pipe ends must be rounded and aligned. A pipe roller support will give more help in alignment and reduce the drag pressure. When the mismatch of the pipe walls is still out of local regulation, please adjust the clamping jaws by tightening down the high side until the pipe ends are even.

Why The Heater Surface Temperature Is Different From That Shown On The Digital Temperature Control?

The digital temperature control indicates the internal temperature of heater. Some heat is lost on the transfer of heat to heater surface. In this case, it is better to use a thermometer to check the surface temperature of the heater. Use this as a reference to monitor the heater temperature during the fusion process.

How Could We Select The Right Equipment For Our Project?

number that indicates the maximum pipe size it can fuse. For example, butt fusion machine WP630A could fuse maximum pipe 630mm O.D., and from the specification chart, you could always find the minimum size it can fuse. If you have specific requirements for your projects, please consult with Welping sales.

How Often Should We Replace The Blade of Pipe Fusion Welding Machine?

Replacing the blade not depends on a certain period. But you should replace it when two sides of the blade are blunt or chipped. The life of blade varies depending on the hours of operation, material being face, periodical maintenance, etc.

How much material be faced from the pipe ends when operating a plastic butt pipe welding machine?

A minimum of (1) complete revolution on each pipe end must be removed in order to expose clean material suitable for butt fusion. Always face to the stops to insure a square face-off perpendicular to the pipe.

What is the correct cooling time for butt fusion machine?

The molten joint must be held immobile under force until cooled adequately to develop strength. The proper cooling times for the joint are dependent on the material, pipe diameter and wall thickness and are established by the pipe manufacturer or by applicable company, local, state, or federal standards. Allowing proper times under force for cooling prior to removal from the clamps of the machine is important in achieving joint integrity.Any questions,please contact our sales team via email or Whatsapp as belowEmail: top@welping.cnWhatsapp : 0086-13185061581(Mr.Pan)

What Accessories may be needed to fuse pipe with a hydraulic butt fusion welding machine?

What is SDR pipe and how does it influence the pressure rating of the pipe?

SDR pipe : "Standard Dimensional Ratio"The SDR pipe is the "Standard Dimensional Ratio" and refers to the geometry of the pipe. SDR is defined as the ratio of the nominal outside diameter to the nominal wall thickness.SDR = dn/enWhere dn is the nominal outside diameter of the pipe and en is the nominal (minimum) wall thickness of the pipe.Therefore a higher SDR indicates a thinner-walled pipe at any given diameter.The relationship between the SDR and the pressure rating is given by Lames formula for the hoop stress in thick wall cylinders:s = P(dn - en) / 2 enThis can be rearranged as;s = P (SDR - 1) / 2Where s is the maximum hoop stress P is the internal pipe pressure.The hoop stress is the design stress for the material, which is the (MRS) divided by the overall service (design) coefficient C.MRS/C = P (SDR - 1) / 2or rearranging;P = 2 MRS / C (SDR - 1)This pressure ‘P' is then defined as the ‘Maximum Operating Pressure' MOP, or the pressure rating of the pipe.MOP = 2 MRS / C (SDR - 1)Where MRS and MOP are in MPa Or MOP = 20 MRS / C (SDR - 1)Where MRS is in MPa and MOP is in bar.Example : What is the MOP or pressure rating of an SDR11 PE100 water pipe?For PE100 the MRS = 10 MPa. For water applications the minimum recommended service design coefficient ‘C' is 1.25.Hence :MOP = 20 * 10 / 1.25 (11 - 1)MOP = 16 bar

Guide to Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR)

Guide to Standard Dimension Ratio (SDR) The standard dimension ratio (SDR)—also referred to as the standard dimensional ratio—is a measurement and method often used by pipe manufacturers to rate the working pressure capacity of a pipe. It is calculated by determining the relationship of the pipe’s outside diameter to its minimum wall thickness. The higher the calculated SDR, the lower the amount of pressure it can handle since the pipe minimum wall thickness is reduced in proportion to the outside diameter remaining the same. The lower the calculated SDR, the higher the amount of pressure it can handle since the wall thickness is thicker in proportion to the pipe diameter. As an example, SDR17 has a thinner wall and lower pressure class than an SDR 11. Knowing and understanding this value is essential for many applications, including, but not limited to, the following:• When calculating the internal pressure inside of a pipe system• When inserting objects into a pipe system such as ID stiffeners for compression fittings• When determining the tensile strength of a pipe under high stress• When assessing the compressive strength of a pipeline undergoing burial
