Pipe and Joint Fusion Equipment: Central Plastics BS-4

February 2009 Vol. 64 No.2

The BS-4 Butt Fusion Machine is capable of butt fusing 1/2- to 4-inch IPS pipe and fittings.

This compact machine is manufactured using structural aluminum castings for stability, yet weights only 34 pounds. Extra-wide grooved pipe clamps and liners help to assure alignment on coiled and out-of-round pipe.

The precision ground guide bars are in the centerline of pipe to maintain equal load balance and proper alignment. Clamp knobs are stainless steel with thrust bearings. A pressure control knob allows the operator to lock position during cooling time for better joint integrity. 800.654.3872, www.centralplastics.com
