Mechanical testing of PE butt welds

Mechanical testing of PE butt welds
When installing a PE piping system, the quality of the weld joints is of crucial importance. The quality of PE welds can be assured with a number of measures:
• check for preparations and weld parameters before starting the welding process
• check during and after the welding process on site
• visual and mechanical laboratory investigation of (test) welds
QS Testing has laboratory facilities to prepare and test PE butt welds, with which both field welds (on a spot check basis) and test welds can be tested according to the applicable standards.
Overview of tests that can be performed:
• NEN 7200:2004 – Tensile testing of PE butt welds
• ISO 527-1 and ISO 527-2 – Tensile testing PE butt-fused joints < 90 mm
• ISO 13953 – Tensile testing of PE butt-fused joints > 90 mm
QS Testing understands that the test results need to be available as quickly as possible. We coordinate the delivery times with you so that the results are available from as soon as 24 hours to a few days.
