FRIATEC is intensely focused on quality, producing a wide range of products for the world's most demanding applications.
Bringing together precision and engineering and cutting edge materials technology, the company produces in excess of 12 million fittings per year at its state-of-the-art Mannheim manufacturing facility in Germany.
A pioneer of electrofusion technology since the 70's, FRIATEC continues to set the standard that others follow. And now, FRIATEC's advanced range of electrofusion fittings, welders and tools are available through Reece Civil in Australia.
Guaranteed performance through technology
Exposed heating coil
Using a highly efficient, exposed heating coil design, FRIATEC’s electrofusion system provides ideal heat transfer from fitting to pipe, delivering a faster and more precise weld. What’s more, this unique design eliminates the risk of contamination through oxidation. The coils are embedded two thirds of the way the fitting so they simply cannot be dislodged.
This ensures excellent bridging of gaps and ideal heat penetration for the perfect seal every time.
Longest coupler length
To guarantee outstanding performance, FRIATEC’s couplings feature extra-long fusion zones. These zones are up to 2.7 times longer than the minimum required standard.
The larger fusion area helps to absorb energy while offering improved safety and stability. Extra-long cold zones reduce bending stress and ensure no loss of melting pressure.
Long coupler length also translates to better pipe support, better pipe alignment inside the fitting, a reduction of bending stress and a larger insertion depth at each end.
Friatec Prime Universal Electrofusion welder
Lightweight and easy to transport, FRIATEC’s advanced FRIAMAT Electrofusion welder takes all the work out creating the perfect weld.
With the built in barcode reader, you simply scan the code on the fitting and the welder adjusts every variable to create the perfect weld – even automatically adjusting the welding time based on the ambient temperature.
Fan-cooled for continuous operation, the welder runs off a 10amp plug – making it suitable for use with a standard power point or generator. And best of all, it can be used with any size coupling in the FRIATEC range.
FRIATEC offers a range of couplers from 20mm – 1200mm in diameter. Each coupler is available in a choice of three different pressure ratings. These are SDR 17 (1000kPA), SDR 11 (1600 kPa) or SDR 7.4 (2500 kPa). If you need to fuse coiled pipe, FRIATEC offers its innovative ‘Long coupler’ which is 80% longer than its standard coupler. FRIATEC also offers elbows in 11°, 30°, 45° & 90°; pressure tapping tees and saddles.
