GAS PIPE JOINT FAILURE
The failure of electrofusion or butt fusion joints in polyethylene gas pipework can be due to several factors including incorrect alignment, contamination, incorrect temperature or the duration of joint fusion.
If a joint failure occurs, investigations are important to help identify modifications to procedures or training that can help you minimise the occurrence of future failure. This is where we can help.
Our PE joint failure investigation service
We provide a detailed PE joint failure investigation service which typically include:
- Visual inspection of the received sample, including dimension measurements of sizes and ovality
- Leak testing the sample including leakage flow rate measurement
- Segmenting the joint for visual investigation
- Peel decohesion testing
