McElroy SmartFab™ streamlines socket fusion

The SmartFab™ 125 provides a smarter way to socket fuse pipe and fittings for polypropylene pipe systems seen in today’s most advanced HVAC, mechanical, and commercial plumbing applications.

This tool has the unique ability to reduce ovality in pipe and fittings. Its inserts easily snap into place and hold the pipe in a strait position during fusion, ensuring an even melt and quality joint.

With four jaws that will adjust to any desired spacing, the SmartFab provides greater flexibility, support, and alignment while fusing fittings and assemblies. Each jaw also clamps individually, which allows for a greater combination of pipe and fitting sizes.

The SmartFab heater rotates 180 degrees, allowing it to easily function on either side of the machine. This saves time and cuts down on the need to reposition the machine in between fusions. Combine that with the machine’s portability and you’re left with a tool that can be positioned on any flat surface for precise prefabrication.

The heater adapters used on the SmartFab are the same durable, Teflon-coated heater adapters used on other McElroy socket fusion tools. These adapters can be used interchangeably with McElroy’s Socket Fusion Kits and the Spider™ 125, making it convenient to use more than one socket tool on a jobsite.

With its superior design features and portability, the SmartFab is the ideal tool for prefabrication of large assemblies.
