Tackle indoor fusion with McElroy Acrobat™ and QuikFit® carriages

In tight indoor spaces, fusing large-diameter polypropylene pipe can be a complicated process, especially when the fusion is taking place overhead.

McElroy Acrobat™ 355mm to 630mm machines fitted with QuikFit®carriages can help.

QuikFit carriages are lightweight and modular, breaking down into components that allow operators to assemble the upper and lower jaws around the pipe by hand. In places where fusion would be impossible with traditional, bulky fusion equipment, the QuikFit can become a full-featured fusion carriage that is smaller, lighter, and easier to lift and situate.

Because of its versatility, the Acrobat™ QuikFit has become a mainstay in the plumbing, mechanical, and HVAC industries.
