Based on the assumption that the solid plug existed in the grooved melting zone and then was ruptured into upper solid plug and lower solid plug, some researchers [17] suggested that main source of the melting heat was the internal friction heat generated by two solid plugs, which were in the barrel groove and the screw channel, respectively, rubbing against each other.
In addition, a trench carrying a flanged or welded pipe must be nearly twice the width of a trench carrying a grooved line, so using grooved technology lowers labour and time requirements, as well as the environmental impact.
The grooved pipe joining method -- which dramatically reduces the amount of installation time as compared to welding, threading or flanging -- is now used extensively in a variety of piping applications.
Obviously, the biggest difference between grooved and welded piping is the use of flame.
