In the TEC operating mode (Figure la), a continuous voltage is applied to the cell, a current circulates, and the Peltier and the Joule effects arise.
Once the fitting is connected to a welding machine, the metal coil generates by Joule effect the energy required for the fusion and interdiffusion of polyethylene macromolecules at the fitting/pipe interface [2, 3].
To avoid the Joule effect is required superfinishing process of side surface's resonant cavities to get a new orientation mode of roughness, parallel with direction of skin current and reduced dispersion of electric field on side cavities of magnetron.
