Socket Fusion Fittings is an industry reference for high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic fittings used to permanently join two or more segments of HDPE plastic pipe through a process known as heat fusion or socket fusion welding. This method of joining pipe and fitting involves a heater tool that evenly warms the plastic pipe and fitting simultaneously to a melt point where the two can be joined by insertion of the melted pipe into the socket of the melted fitting. Once inserted properly and allowed to cool, the two parts become one continuous bond of HDPE plastic that cannot be separated and form a connection stronger than its individual parts.
Geo-Hydro Supply carries a complete line of HDPE socket fusion fittings for IPS (iron pipe size) pipe dimensions, where the outside diameter of the pipe is controlled throughout a range of sidewall thicknesses. We inventory the following socket fusion sizes: 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 2" IPS. Browse our store to find couplings, elbows, end caps, bushings, tees, socket fusion x brass FPT and MPT adapters, and a host of other specialty adapters.
