For Large Pipe Applications

Talon™ 2000

54" - 2000mm OD

The Talon™ 2000 — McElroy's biggest machine to date — brings a revolutionary new way to fuse large-diameter, thermoplastic pipe that is in growing demand to replace aging infrastructures and increase capacity for a variety of today's applications.

The Talon 2000 is a self-propelled vehicle with the unique ability to safely lift pipe from the ground, position it to be fused and move from joint to joint down the pipeline. It features a quick-action facer and an electric-powered indexer to accurately and safely position the heater and facer into the fusion machine.
