What is the best practice for fusing 4" and 6" coiled pipe using a #28 machine? Best way to properly align the pipe and set drag pressure if required. Is there an approved procedure??

The easiest way is to have a line tamer. It eliminates the tendency of the pipe to try and recoil. It makes coiled pipe as easy as standard butt fusion. Without a line tamer I understand the best way is to uncoil your two coils and situate them such that the bends the pipe ends are trying to make going opposite ways. (Like an S, where each pipe makes half of the S)You must still measure drag as normal. Free the ends you will fuse from possible tangles and anything that might catch it. Then measure drag at the point when the two pipe ends are about to touch. Good Luck!
