In-Ditch 1600

20" OD - 65" OD (500mm - 1600mm)

The In-Ditch 1600 brings butt fusion capability to jobs fusing large-diameter pipe, fitting and flanges in very tight work spaces. It was designed as an ideal machine for tie-in fusions and a cost-effective alternative to electrofusion, which requires the purchase of additional fittings.

The In-Ditch 1600 features a compact, two-jaw carriage with a top-loading heater and facer for greater flexibility in confining areas. The carriage has the same 30,000 pounds of clamping force per jaw as the MegaMc® 1600. With a 3,000 psi maximum pressure range, the In-Ditch 1600 can fuse onto 15” of exposed pipe, providing maximum versatility in close quarters with minimal excavation required.

Ease of mobility is built into the machine with multiple lifting points, a carriage spreader bar and skidded carriage, all designed to fit within a small envelope. Roll bars protect the carriage and hydraulic components as the machine is eased into the ditch.
