The fusion joining process consists in transmitting precisely defined thermal energy to the pipe and fitting ends being joined by means of half-shell heating elements. At the same time an elastic, pressurised bladder supports the inside surface of the fusion zone in order to prevent the formation of an internal fusion bead.  Fully automatic process control of the fusion joining process with a fusion joining machine developed in-house by GF Piping Systems permits very simple handling and reproducible fusion quality.  The machine covers the PVDF (SYGEF) and PP-n (PROGEF Natural) material in the dimension range of d20 mm up to d110 mm.

Range:

  • d20 to d110

Materials:

  • Appropriate materials for BCF Plus Fusion: PP-n and PVDF 
No dead legs and minimum stress in the fusion

BCF is the optimal fusion technology for low microbiological attachment and excellent cleanability. A stress-free and extremely smooth fusion zone as well as high chemical and mechanical resistance make the BCF fusion outstanding.

Reproducible and documented fusion quality

Highly automated, self-monitored and software-controlled fusion processes enable high reproducibility. A user-friendly interface minimizes operator faults and guarantees easy handling.

Remote fusion capability

With the remote fusion unit, it is possible to weld up to eight meters away from the machine housing without any loss of quality. This makes it possible to execute fusion procedures in difficult and tight spatial conditions.

Extremely versatile

The BCF fusion machine comes as a complete system, including working table with all necessary equipment and Euro-pallet transport case. It is designed for industrial applications and cleanroom conditions.
