Modular, lightweight & toolless assembly

Acrobat 450/500

Fusion capability for 450mm and 500mm
(18" and 20") polypropylene pipe

McElroy's Acrobat machines that feature the QuikFit™ carriage are size specific and are composed of lightweight, modular components so that the upper and lower jaws can be assembled around the pipe by hand. This eliminates the difficulty of lifting and fitting an entire carriage into a small space. It will fuse pipe in any orientation that is required on plumbing, mechanical and HVAC installations, including vertical and overhead.
