Fittings - Socket Fusion
Return to Fittings
Socket Fusion is the recommended method for joining PESTAN 20mm - 125 mm (nominal
1/2" - 4") pipe.
When socket fusing, the outside diameter of the pipe and the inside diameter of
the fitting are simultaneously headed and then brought together forming a
permanent leak-free joint.
PESTAN produces a complete line of Socket Fusion fittings for use with their
piping systems. PESTAN Fittings are made from PP-RCT resin. This is the same
high performance material used in PESTAN Mechanical Pipe.
In addition to the outstanding performance characteristics of the resin, the
fittings are manufactured with a wall thickness and pressure rating that
exceeds the ratings on the pipe.
The additional thickness of the fitting minimizes heat transfer and the need
for insulation of the fittings may be reduced or eliminated in certain applications.
CT Piping Solutions offers fusion training to installers via local representatives
or through our affiliates. Trained and registered installers are critical for a
successful piping system and are required for that system to be covered under the
