Fusion Inspector

Training and Qualification

Inspector Qualification School was created from a demand within several industries for a training course designed for the polyethylene welding inspector. In the school, we will explain the theory of butt fusion of polyethylene pipe and the process used to join it. The information includes the use of inspection checklists and a discussion of the critical factors involved in the fusion welding processes. This includes butt fusion, electro-fusion, socket fusion and sidewall fusion. Students also receive an in-depth explanation on the use and analysis of McElroy DataLogger® records.

Inspectors, project managers, consulting engineers, quality assurance managers, and sales professionals can benefit from this training.

Attendance in Small Diameter Operations and either Medium Diameter Operations or Large Diameter Operations courses are highly recommended.
