The quality of the joint depends on your scrupulous compliance with the following recommendations.
5.1 HANDLING THE PIPES AND COUPLINGS
During welding, the pipes and couplings must be at near-ambient temperature, as detected by the welder’s temperature probe. They must consequently be protected from direct sunlight both before and during welding, since they could otherwise become much warmer than the ambient temperature, with a consequent negative effect on the electro-melting process (i.e. excessive melting of the pipe and coupling). In the case of excessively high temperatures, move the pipes and couplings to a cool, shady place and wait for their temperature to return to near-ambient values.
Cut the ends of the pipes being prepared for welding at right-angles, using suitable pipe-cutting tools (we recommend using the pipe-cutter, refer to Figure - 1 -).
Pay careful attention to avoid any bending or ovalizing of the pipe.
Smoothly scrape off the oxidized surface layer from the end of the pipe or fitting using suitable tools (we recommend the RTC 315 pipe-scraper, refer to Figure - 2 -). Make sure that you obtain an even, overall scraping action on the surfaces at the pipe ends involved in the welding operation, extending over at least 1 cm for each half of the coupling. If this cleaning is not done accurately, only a superficial bond will be achieved, because the oxidized layer prevents molecular penetration between the parts and thus interferes with the proper outcome of the welding action. Scraping with sand paper, rasps, or emery grinding wheels is absolutely unsuitable.
Remove the coupling from its packaging only just before it is used and clean the inside of the coupling in compliance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Slide the ends of the pipes into the coupling.
It is essential to use an aligning device:
- to ensure that the parts remain in a stable position throughout the welding and cooling phases;
- to avoid any mechanical strain on the joint during the welding and cooling phases;
(we recommend using one of the aligning devices in the range, refer to Figure - 3 -).
The area where welding is done must be protected against particularly unfavorable weather conditions, such as damp or temperatures below -5°C or above +40°C.
Use the cable and welding parameters suited to the coupling you are using.
The cooling temperature varies, depending on the diameter of the couplings and the ambient temperature. Always comply with the timing recommendations of the manufacturers of the pipe and coupling elements used in the welding.
The removal of the aligning devices and disconnection of the welding cables must be done only after the cooling phase has come to an end.
