Butt fusion

At EPS Trenchless Installations, we specialize in the leading-edge technique of Butt Fusion for High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) piping systems. Our approach is centered on precision and efficiency, ensuring seamless and durable pipe connections. Our team, comprised of specifically trained operatives, employs state-of-the-art Butt Fusion equipment to execute a process that guarantees a homogeneous, leak-proof joint. This method is integral to infrastructure projects demanding longevity and stability, and at EPS Trenchless Installations, we deliver excellence in every fusion.

Expert Electrofusion Solutions

For situations where Butt Fusion is not feasible, such as at intricate pipe junctions, EPS Trenchless Installations offers advanced Electrofusion solutions. Our method utilizes cutting-edge fittings with built-in electrical heating elements, skillfully melting and bonding the fitting to the pipe. This process, carried out by our highly trained team, is ideal for creating strong, consistent bonds in complex piping systems, showcasing our commitment to versatility and top-quality installations.

Precision Socket Fusion

EPS Trenchless Installations is also proficient in Socket Fusion for small-diameter polyethylene and polypropylene pipes. Our operatives, who undergo specific training in this technique, utilize precision fusion equipment to heat and join the pipe and fitting surfaces. This method is renowned for its ability to maintain the flexibility of the piping system, crucial for certain applications. With Socket Fusion, we ensure a robust and enduring connection, comparable in durability to Butt Fusion, underscoring our dedication to delivering reliable piping solutions.
