In-Ditch 1600 from McElroy fuses large pipe in tight spots
McElroy offers the solution for fusing large-diameter pipe up to 65" OD in challenging, close-quarter working environments with the new In-Ditch 1600. Its creation is in direct response to a customer who needed a machine capable of butt fusing large-diameter tie-in connections in a high-density neighborhood with many turning roadways.
"The beauty of this is the collaboration and creativity to come up with a solution," said Brett Stone, Sales Channel Manager at McElroy. "The In-Ditch 1600 now gives all contractors the option of butt fusing fittings, flanges and tie ins for a whole lot less than traditional electrofusion fittings in that diameter."
The In-Ditch 1600 is designed with a compact, 2-jaw carriage and a top-loading heater and facer for added flexibility. It is capable of fusing onto as little as 15" of exposed pipe with minimal excavation required. Multiple lifting points, a carriage spreader bar and skidded carriage provide ease of mobility and fit within a small envelope. A roll cage helps protect the carriage and hydraulics as they are lowered into the ditch.
The carriage of the In-Ditch 1600 has the same 30,000 pounds of clamping force per jaw as the time-proven MegaMc 1600, the largest in McElroy's rolling machine line, as well as the same 3,000 psi maximum pressure.
The In-Ditch 1600 is also compatible with the DataLogger which records each step of the fusion process for added jobsite accountability.
