TULSA, Okla. — McElroy, the leading manufacturer of thermoplastic pipe joining products, has recently launched a polypropylene-random (PP-R) website. The new website highlights McElroy equipment and tools for use with the growing PP-R market. The site can be found at www.mcelroy.com/ppr.
McElroy pipe fusion equipment and productivity tools have long been associated with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) piping and the underground construction industry. Those same tools are growing in popularity for use with PP-R piping that can be used for potable water and food-grade applications, compressed air systems, hydronic heating, chilled water, recycled and reclaimed water applications, rainwater collection and irrigation, industrial applications, chemical transport, in-floor heating systems and fire suppression systems.
“We’re excited about the growth of PP-R use in North America and worldwide,” said Chip McElroy, president of McElroy. “This new site allows customers and industry professionals to quickly find the information and products they need.”
The growth of PP-R use has prompted several new products from McElroy, including the Spider™ 125 socket fusion assembly tool and socket fusion heater kits designed for plumbing and mechanical contractors. McElroy fusion products on the PP-R site are specific to the low interfacial pressures required by polypropylene fusion machines.
