Fusion Equipment

Fusion Equipment

Gajeske, Inc. works exclusively with McElroy to provide our customers with top-of-the-line fusion equipment. McElroy fusion machines are the equipment of choice on job sites with long runs of pipe and rugged terrain, where maneuverability is paramount. Most machines are self-contained, have all necessary electrical equipment on-board, and feature removable carriages for ease of use in nearly any situation.

Training included with purchase of select new McElroy fusion machines

With the purchase of a new McElroy 618, 630, or T900, Gajeske will provide our 4-hour Qualification Training for these machines for up to two individuals free of charge.

Manual/Small Diameter

½” CTS – 1” IPS

(16mm – 34mm)

Hand-operated and requiring only one operator, McElroy’s smallest fusion machine makes small diameter butt fusions simple and accurate in even the most difficult conditions.

½” CTS – 1” IPS

(16mm – 34mm)

Requires only one operator and features a more conventional design, while using the same inserts as the MiniMc.

½” CTS – 2” IPS

(16mm – 60mm)

Made primarily of surface-hardened aluminum for light weight and durability. Jaws and inserts have multiple serrations for maximum grip on the pipe.

½” CTS – 2” IPS

(16mm – 60mm)

McElroy’s patented Centerline Guidance System allows for sidewall fusion of ½ – 2” service saddles, round base branch saddles, and small tapping tees. Equipped with chain length that will grip up to 8” IPS pipe. Additional chain lengths available.

McElroy Pit Bull® model machines are compact, lightweight, and reliable. The machines incorporate McElroy’s patented Centerline Guidance System, and are designed to butt fuse tees, ells, and other fittings with consistent, high-quality results. With semi-automatic locking cams, Pit Bulls lock the movable jaw in place during the cooling cycle.

Tools & Accessories

The McElroy Datalogger is used to record and document that proper fusion procedures have been followed prior to installation. The device records heater temperature and fusion pressure over the course of the fusion process, and the resulting report can be stored and viewed later.

 

Datalogger Vault®

Datalogger Vault® is a secure server accessible via the internet, where customers can store fusion data and access a variety of helpful analytical tools.

Straightens and re-rounds coiled pipe, conduit, and duct to meet ASTM ovality requirements.
