Solvent Weld & Ring Seal

At Hitchin Plumbing Supplies, we offer a complete range of both Solvent Weld and Ring Seal fittings.

Differences Between Ring Seal and Solvent Weld

Ring seal is normally used in most installations and is much more commonplace that it's counterpart. The solvent weld system tends to be used for high pressure installations such as pumped sewage.

Ring-seal pipes rely on an elastomeric 'O' ring built into the coupling or the socket that is compressed against the outer wall of the upstream pipe or fitting when jointed, giving a completely watertight joint. Ring-seal jointing may be found as separate couplings or the pipes and fittings might have in-built couplings with identifiable 'female' and 'male' ends, known as sockets (f) and spigots (m). To join pipes in a ring-seal system, the spigot or coupling is lubricated and the pipes brought together with gentle force.

In solvent-weld systems the couplings and fittings are glued together by a special solvent that is supplied by the pipe manufacturer. It is very important that you take note of the manufacturers instructions with regarding to jointing as these can vary. It's also important to use the correct solvent and not to mix them between different products / manufacturers.
