The Number One Choice On The Jobsite

TracStar® 500 Series 3

6" IPS - 20" OD (160mm - 500mm)

The TracStar 500 was the first fusion machine in the world to be mounted on a track system, making it mobile in almost any terrain. Considered the flagship of McElroy machines, its success spawned the entire TracStar line of fusion equipment. The TracStar 500 Series 3 adds additional productivity enhancing features, such as indexer-mounted facer and heater that are powered by the machine, standard Hydraulic Clamping, dual pipe lifts and an economy engine throttle setting to conserve fuel.

The TracStar 500 Series 3 Automatic is also available when automatic control and monitoring over the heat, soak, fuse and cool cycles is required.
