The Polygon from McElroy is the first manual butt fusion machine that's DataLogger® compatible. It allows installers the flexibility to complete butt and miter fusions from zero- to 45-degree angles and has the additional capability to perform socket fusions. This three-in-one machine's simple design and light weight make it the ideal prefabrication tool on 63mm to 160mm polypropylene pipe jobsites.
The Polygon's mitering options are designed to meet the unique complexities of mechanical piping installations and retrofits where installers must navigate around various obstructions in buildings. With the ability to perform miter fusions in the field, time and costs can be saved on purchasing and waiting on molded or fabricated fittings to be made.
The Polygon's quick-clamping jaws pivot in either direction which makes the machine faster and easier to set up. The rotating jaws will lock in exact angles from zero- to 45-degrees for butt or miter fusions. The jaws can also be swapped with an optional Spider™ 125 Adapter Kit for socket fusion.
The Polygon is McElroy's first manually-operated butt fusion machine with DataLogger capability. This provides a manually-operated solution that is more conducive to working in tight spaces with the added ability to capture joint information. These joint records are used to verify that proper fusion procedures have been followed prior to installation, which is a growing jobsite requirement. Joint records from the DataLogger can be stored and analyzed in the Vault™, a secure server on the internet. This allows quick and easy sorting, tagging and sharing of joint records by machine, joint, operator, device or job.
With a manually-powered fusion carriage and a battery-operated drill to power the facer, the only power required is for the 1,200-watt heater. This helps minimize the amount of extra power equipment needed onsite and simplifies the working space.
McElroy equipment is built to withstand the tough environments our industry encounters. We're confident that your machine will perform to the best of its capabilities. We've even given each piece of equipment a 5-year warranty — the longest available in the industry.
