Plastic Pipe Fusion/Fittings: Central Plastics/Georg Fischer

September 2009 Vol. 64 No. 9

The BS-4 Butt Fusion Machine is capable of butt fusing ½- 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 the 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
