The Hornet is an industry-first, all-in-one fusion tool for outlet fusion of polypropylene pipe. Its patent-pending design helps plumbing installers maintain perfect alignment of the pipe and fitting for more efficient and accurate fusions with less time and strain compared to manual methods.
The unique, “V-base” design allows it to self-align on the center of the main pipe. A precision carriage guides the drilling of the outlet hole and fusion of the fitting — keeping everything perfectly aligned to produce consistent and accurate fusions.
The Hornet fits a range of main sizes up to 630mm for branches up to 63mm and comes with an integrated ratchet strap to hold it securely in place. The larger, Hornet XL incorporates a chain clamp system for branches up to 160mm and main sizes 110mm and larger. Both the Hornet and Hornet XL work with all saddle fusion outlet heads for polypropylene pipe in their respective branch main size ranges.
The Hornet is capable of performing outlet fusions in any orientation — making it ideal for overhead and vertical fusions in tight spaces. The Hornet XL also fuses in any orientation and requires only a single operator.
