63mm – 160mm (2″ – 6″)
This is a low strength fusion machine ideal for joining fuses in small workspaces. Its small design and low weight make it the perfect machine for aerial mergers in small spaces and on the ground.
Like other of our machines, the Acrobat 160 allows to configure from 4 jaws to 3 without using any type of tools to work in even narrower and smaller spaces.

ADAPTABLE AND FLEXIBLE TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF ANY WORK
These machines offer the best features for butt welding of polypropylene pipes in more advanced mechanical and commercial HVAC plumbing applications. The Acrobat fusion machines are simple to operate, have a compact design and are very light. You can weld pipes on ceilings, on walls or on the floor. We have two models that can weld pipes of sizes between 63mm and 315mm (2 “to 12”) of polypropylene.
SMALL AND VERY
This machine has been specially built to have a small size and a light weight. In this way we managed to simplify the mergers on the head. The Acrobat model has a modular hydraulic power unit that consumes much less power and also makes the machine lighter. This makes the transport of all our Acrobat machines at work easier.
VERSATILITY IN THE POWER AND CART CONFIGURATIONS TO SATISFY THE REQUIREMENTS OF EACH PROJECT
In order to satisfy all the desired pressure of the system in the construction projects, our Acrobat machines are compatible with two hydraulic power units. The carriage pressure can be configured in two ways: Low force, in the event that we are going to merge with slow entrainment or in thin-walled tubes. And high force, for those cases in which we are going to merge with high drag and vertical applications. In both options the operator will be able to define the pressures of countersigned, heating and fusion.
MAKES MERGERS IN
ANY TYPE OF ORIENTATION
VERTICAL INSTALLATIONS, ON THE HEAD AND MUCH MORE
All our Acrobat machines are adapted to any type of situation and are capable of welding on the head, vertically or horizontally. It has narrow jaws that achieve fusions in several flanges and connectors. The Acrobat 250 and 315 models have a light heater system and blocking of the guide bar. That eliminates the need to hold the heater in place in the head-on fusions.
CONVERT THE ACROBAT IN A SMALLER 3-CLUTCH TRUCK WITHOUT TOOLS
Transforms the car from 4 to 3 jaws by disassembling it from its base without the need for extra tools. In this way you will get a smaller machine for narrow spaces. Both the countersigned and the heater can be loaded above or below the carriage with this configuration. In this way the operator can work more comfortably and flexibly in any work situation.
THE EASIEST WAY TO RECORD & ANALYZE ALL YOUR FUSION JOINT DATA
All Acrobat machines are compatible with McElroy DataLogger. This is a small handheld computer that is responsible for documenting and analyzing the key parameters that are happening throughout the merger process. Later all this data is used to verify that all steps and fusion procedures are adequate before installation. The joint DataLogger records can be stored and analyzed in Vault, our server on the Internet. This allows a better classification, faster and easier, a labeling and an exchange of joint records by machine, articulation, operator, device or work.
