Single-Operator Fusion
Made Easy

The manually-operated fusion machines provide all the power you need to perform accurate fusions all day long on the toughest of jobsites. Rugged and reliable, these compact fusion machines are lightweight and require only one operator. Precision engineering provides joint integrity with minimal maintenance.

Patented Centerline Guidance System

Consistent Joint Quality

Centerline Guidance Provides Equal Distribution of Force

Centerline Guidance is a balanced force system that is unique to all McElroy machines. This patented feature places the centerline of the pipe clamping jaws on the same plane as the pipe's centerline. The force applied during the fusion passes through the center of the pipe, producing an equal distribution of force around the diameter of the pipe which results in an even, continuous bead formation and quality joint.

Butt Fusion Options for ½" CTS TO 6" DIPS Pipe

McElroy's manual machines offer a compact and lightweight solution for butt fusing pipe sizes from 1/2" CTS to 6" DIPS (16mm to 180mm). Individual machines cover a range of pipe diameters — not just one — giving you the flexibility to fuse multiple pipe sizes with one machine.

Hand-Powered Operations

Designed for Precision & Ease of Use

With a small footprint and compact design, the manual machines perform anywhere you need them to — on the ground or in the ditch. The machines are made primarily of surface-hardened aluminum making them light and easy to carry yet rugged enough to withstand even the toughest of conditions. A narrow clamp design helps align pipe precisely at the fusion joint, bringing simplicity and ease of use to hand-operated small fusion.
