One of the more popular features of large-diameter MegaMc™ fusion machines is the hydraulic clamping that tightens the jaw clamps. Now, users can retrofit their Rolling and TracStar® 412s, Rolling and TracStar® 618s, and TracStar® 500 Series II, with hydraulic clamping that replaces the standard manual crank clamp knobs. The retrofit kit can be installed by your local McElroy distributor and includes a manifold block that is added to the carriage and controls the two fixed jaw cylinders and two movable jaw cylinders independently. Included in the kit are two inner-upper jaws for adjusting high-low that are specific to clamping-enabled machines.
- Increased productivity by eliminating manual cranking of clamp knobs
- Less time spent working with jaw operation and more time spent fusing pipe
- Quick disconnect hydraulic fittings are provided for fusing tees, ells, and tie-ins
- Retrofit kit can be installed at your local McElroy distributor
