McElroy’s PitBull 26 is Unleashed
New fusion machine butt fuses 2-inch IPS to 6-inch DIPS (63mm – 180mm)
TULSA, Okla. (August 4, 2010) – The new PitBull® 26 fusion machine from McElroy has been unleashed. The machine can fuse a variety of pipe sizes in the popular 2-inch IPS through 6-inch DIPS (63mm through 180mm) range.
Due to the growing popularity of the size range, the PitBull 26 was designed to provide contractors a go-to machine for their day-to-day fusion operations. The design of the machine is similar to one of McElroy’s best-selling machines, the PitBull 14.
“We are a customer-centric company. We knew from market feedback that we had to provide our customers a great fusion machine designed for the demands of this popular pipe size range,” said Chip McElroy, president of McElroy.
Much like the PitBull 14 machine, the 26 features McElroy’s patented Centerline Guidance System, a semi-automatic locking cam, hard anodized aluminum wear surfaces for corrosion resistance and thrust-bearing-equipped clamp knobs that minimize the torque required to clamp and round the pipe for fusion operations. The unit can also fit on McElroy’s Manual Fusion Machine Stand to bring the process to a more comfortable height for the operator.
Three PitBull 26 machine models are available – a 6-inch DIPS with a 100- to 120-input voltage requirement, a 6-inch DIPS with a 220- to 240-input voltage requirement and a 180mm unit with 220- to 240-input voltage requirement. Each PitBull 26 machine comes with the fusion machine, facer, heater, insulated heater stand, facer stand, 6-inch IPS insert set and a screw/driver kit.
