New Features for DataLogger
McElroy brings productivity
improvements and exciting new
features to the DataLogger 6 that
allow users to document and analyze
even more of their jobsites.
These groundbreaking enhancements
in Version 1.15 include
McElroy Optimized Cooling, which
reduces the minimum cool time
based on a new, patent-pending
formula that is compliant with
ASTM F2620. In addition, this
update includes the ability to capture
pressure tests in the field.
McElroy conducted extensive
testing and even partnered with
of Tulsa on the
longest step in
amount of time it takes to cool the center of the pipe.
“As a manufacturer, we have always looked at ways to
optimize our equipment and now we’re optimizing the
fusion procedure itself,” said Jim Johnston, Chief
Innovation Officer at McElroy.
The cool time can be reduced with McElroy Optimized
Cooling based on a formula that includes the ambient
temperature, pipe temperature, weather conditions, heat
soak time and pipe wall thickness for each joint. This procedure
results in a dramatic time savings for the entire
fusion process by saving days and even weeks on the job.
Up until now, most pressure tests done in the field have
either been monitored and recorded manually or have
used antiquated technologies. The DataLogger 6 now
offers a guided workflow to document the details of pressure
tests along with a digital graph of the process. These
test reports will also be stored along with all of the joint
reports from jobsites in the McElroy Vault. This information
is backed up, safe and provides a complete report of
