Miter, Butt & Socket Fusion
McElroy, a leading manufacturer of pipe fusion equipment, has unveiled the new Polygon, a versatile tool uniquely built for the needs of the mechanical, plumbing and HVAC piping industry.
The Polygon is the industry’s first manual machine for miter, butt and socket fusion to offer DataLogger® capability which allows contractors to meet the growing requirement for better traceability and assurance that joints are fused according to standard. The Polygon can produce miter and butt fusion joints for 63mm to 160mm polypropylene pipe from zero- to 45-degree angles and offers additional socket fusion capability for 63mm to 125mm polypropylene pipe and fittings.
The Polygon is equipped with quick-clamp, pivoting, jaws for easier setup and pivoting pipe supports to keep pipe level in the jaws. These features provide a wider variety of mitering options than any other machine of its kind. It is the perfect tool to use in close-quarter mechanical rooms in new construction and well as well as older structures on pipe replacement projects. Both environments need a machine that functions well in crowded conditions and around various architectural and mechanical obstructions.
McElroy has also incorporated a cordless feature for the facer which is powered by a battery-operated drill included in the package. Power is only required for the heater which keeps electrical needs minimal.
