Electrofusion Pipework

Electrofusion Pipework

UPP® pipework utilizes the advanced electrofusion welding process to effectively bond system components including pipework and containment together into one, watertight system.

UL UPP® pipe is offered in 1½", 2", 3", and 4" diameters and a variety of stick and coil sizes.

rEN UPP® pipe is offered in 32mm, 50mm, 63mm, 90mm, 110mm, and 160mm diameters and a variety of stick and coil sizes.

REAL CONTRACTORS, REAL REACTIONS

We met up with veteran petroleum equipment contractors for their first UPP® Electrofusion Pipework installation. See for yourself what these experts had to say.

A WATERTIGHT PIPEWORK SYSTEM SOLUTION

With over 30 years of proven performance, UPP® of semi-rigid pipework is the world's first electrofusion pipework system for fuel applications, and remains today, the best-in-class watertight solution for pipework and containment globally.


A Watertight System

At the heart of the UPP® pipework system is the highly efficient electrofusion welding process that connects pipe, fittings, seals and containment to create a seamless, watertight direct burial pipework system. 

A Versatile Pipework Solution

UPP® pipe is suitable for all UL and EN fueling applications including: product lines, vent lines, vapor lines, and above and below grade environments. The semi-rigid pipework is rigid enough to be used in place of fiberglass pipe for vapor or vent lines, yet flexible enough to coil and accommodate the bends of for product lines.

Simple, Safe, & Effective Installation

With the advanced electrofusion welder and welding process, a single button push will effectively bond system components together into one leak-proof system regardless of pipe diameter, component, or ambient temperature.

ELECTROFUSION WELDING INSTALLATION

UPP® semi-rigid pipework utilizes the advanced electrofusion welder and welding process to effectively bond system components together into one, leak-proof system.

UPP UL Pipe & Welder.psd

Fast Welding Process

After connecting a welder and its leads to a fitting, the installer presses a single button to initiate the welding process.

UPP Pipe - Easy Install - Welder.psd

A Smart Welder

The welder calculates the exact settings needed regardless of pipe diameter, component, or ambient temperature.

UPP Pipe - Easy Install - Simple.psd

Easy for the Installer

There is nothing for the installer to input, no language barrier to overcome, with the same process for all types of pipes, fittings, and entry boots.

UPP Pipe - Watertight Wide.psd
WATERTIGHT CONTAINMENT ENTRY

In both of the polyethylene and fiberglass sump sealing processes, the boot, sump, and pipework become one solid structure, creating a watertight system.

UPP Pipe - Watertight - Electrofusion.psd

Remove Leak Paths

The boot, sump and pipework actually become one solid structure, creating a 100% watertight system, free of mechanical seals and potential leak paths.

UPP Pipe - Watertight - Polly.psd

Polyethylene Connections

Entry boots directly weld to polyethylene sumps using the electrofusion welding process to create one, soid structure.

UPP Pipe - Watertight - Fiberglass.psd

Fiberglass Connections

A polyethylene sleeve is over-molded onto a metallic ring that is fiberglassed to the sump to create a watertight joint.

UPP Pipe - Gemini Fittings Wide.psd
GEMINI™ SECONDARY CONTAINED FITTINGS

Patented UPP® Gemini Secondary Containment fittings feature a two-piece design that can be fully welded and tested before closing the secondary, something no other brand can offer.

UPP Pipe - Gemini - Fittings.psd

Less Fittings, More Savings

Designed to enclose standard one-piece primary fittings, thus drastically reducing the number of necessary parts, welds, time and overall cost.

UPP Pipe - Gemini - Weld.psd

Weld, Then Test

Avoid discovering a breach in the system after the secondary has been welded, saving significant installation time and cost.

UPP Pipe - Gemini - Less Fittings.psd

Complete Confidence

With Gemini's integrity testing capabilities, you get a level of confidence which installers and end users have yet to experience until now.

UPP Pipe - Alternative Wide.psd
A VERSATILE PIPEWORK SOLUTION

UPP® pipework provides a non-corrosive alternative to steel & fiberglass with additional installation and performance benefits.

Greater Flexiblity

UPP® pipework is highly flexible unlike steel and fiberglass - it’s also structurally resistant to seismic activity, backfill, and traffic during install.

Non-Corrosive

Corrosion in steel piping can be caused by aggressive soils and can lead to large scale issues and joint failures – UPP® pipe and fittings simply cannot corrode.

Low Maintenance

With steel, ground movement, water hammer and friction losses can create ongoing maintenance costs after installation is complete, costs you can avoid with UPP®.

SEE HOW IT WORKS

From cleaning and prepping the components, to executing the weld, the simple 8-step electrofusion welding process yields watertight connections throughout the pipework system.
