McElroy Introduces Newly Designed, More Compact Fusion Heater

Tulsa, OK — McElroy Manufacturing, Inc. based in Tulsa, OK announced today the availability of a new heater for use with its polyethylene pipe fusion machines. “This new heater incorporates many features that were specifically requested from our customers such as a shorter handle and enhanced diagnostic capabilities,” said Chris Greggs, National Sales Manager for McElroy.

The new heater features a microprocessor controlled temperature set point that can be adjusted using an easy to read dial and control knob. “This is an advantage over the competition in that it removes any guesswork”, said Greggs. For fusion machines that fuse pipe up to 4″, the heater handle has been shortened for easier operations, such as while working in-ditch. All models feature an ergonomic handle with diamond grip.

The new heater’s PC board contains onboard diagnostics to alert the operator of a potential problem. This allows for easy diagnosis and maintenance on or off the job site.
