McElroy Manufacturing

McElroy, the pipe fusion experts, is celebrating 15 years of Pit Bull fusion machines. The Pit Bull line of machines butt fuse thermoplastic pipes together for use in water, gas, mining, wastewater, geothermal, landfill methane recovery and other industries.

In June 2008, a 16-inch-diameter cast iron water main ruptured in Daytona Beach, FL. The main, one of three that service nearby barrier islands and beaches, was 61 years old.

McElroy, the pipe fusion experts, recently introduced the MegaMc PolyHorse.

McElroy welcomes two new international distributors -- OPD Solutions of Norway and Gulf Services and Industrial Supplies Co., LLC of Oman.

Here's the latest from the UCT International Conference and Exhibition going on now at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. What are you missing? Yesterday, trenchless industry association UCTA bestowed its annual Most Valuable Professional Award on CIGMAT's Dr. Cumaraswamy Vipulanadan, Ph.D. Barbco unveiled a much-requested disc cutter, debuting at UCT after over a decade's wait for a commercial offering. UCT's first ever SafeZone started offering attendees a shot at locating a tricky line on-site, while the Rehab Zone showed off with live demonstrations of three separate technologies.

The McElroy PolyHorse can reduce labor expenses, provide a less hazardous working environment and enhance productivity up to 150 percent in some instances. The productivity tool can be used with 3-inch IPS through 20-inch OD (90 mm to 500 mm) polyethylene pipe.

McElroy has introduced Hydraulic Clamping retrofit kits for the popular 500 line of fusion machines. The new introduction comes after a successful introduction of the same product for 412 and 618 fusion machines last year.

The new Wired DataLogger offers contractors, supervisors and pipeliners the ability to record and document the pipe fusion process.
