Fuseal, the proven resistance coil fusion method of joining polypropylene drain piping systems. Used primarily for acid waste drain lines. Fuseal has been utilized in thousands of institutional and industrial projects that demand strong, leak-proof, safe pipe joints.
The Fuseal heat fusion process joins pipe and fitting into one complete homogenous unit. A low voltage Fuseal power unit is connected to an electrical resistance coil imbedded in the Fuseal fitting. When power is applied the coil imbedded in the Fuseal fitting. When power is applied the coil heat completely fuses the interface between the pipe and fitting socket.
The complete line of fittings include all standard DWV configuration in 1 1/2” through 12” pipe sizes. Pipe is readily available in flame-retardant Schedule 40, non-flame retardant Schedule 40 and Schedule 80.
The Fuseal mechanical joint incorporates a ring of glass reinforced polypropylene sulfide which automatically gripes and cuts a retaining groove in the pipe as the nut is tightened. It is not necessary to groove the pipe, heat the sealing ring or insert the sealing ring as in competitive systems.
The Fuseal heat fusion method should be used in inaccessible places where a completely homogenous structure of pipe and fitting is essential. The mechanical system can be used underbench where speed of installation, future disassembly or modular design is desired.
Fittings 1 1/2” through 6” are manufactured of flame retardant material but 8” and above are manufactured of non-flame retardant material.
