Butt Welding

Pipe Diameter: 6" - 24"

Butt welding (also known as butt fusion), is used for pipe and fittings from 6" to 24" in diameter.

To perform a butt weld connection, the ends of the pipe are planed smooth, pressed against a heating plate, then pressed together while cooling.

The fittings used in butt fusion are made from the pipe itself or match the diameter of the pipe, so no additional couplings are needed.
