McElroy's socket fusion tools are the preferred equipment for quick and precise socket fusion installations of polypropylene piping systems. These hand-powered tools are simple to use and require only one person to operate. This saves time and money and frees up manpower for other simultaneous functions, making the jobsite even more productive and seamless.
McElroy's socket fusion tools cover pipe sizes from 16mm to 125mm (⅜" - 4"). Each individual tool covers a range of pipe diameters — not just one — giving you the flexibility to fuse multiple pipe sizes with one tool. There is a socket fusion tool for every situation whether fusing pipe and fittings with hand tools, fusing in tight spaces in the ceilings, floors and walls or prefabricating long pipeline and fitting assemblies in the shop on a bench top machine.
McElroy socket fusion tools are the preferred equipment on jobsites because they are capable of fusing all brands of polypropylene pipe and fittings, including PP-R (Polypropylene Random Copolymer) and the newest generation PP-RCT (Polypropylene Random Copolymer Crystalline Temperature). These materials deliver the same leak-free, corrosion-free pipe systems as other thermoplastic pipe systems that have been used successfully for decades.
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.
