IN-DITCH 48

16″ OD – 48″ OD (450mm – 1200mm)

Bring fusion capability to confined work settings using large-diameter pipe. Featuring a top-loading heater and facer which provides greater flexibility in tight spaces with minimal site excavation required.

The In-Ditch 48 has at 3,000 psi maximum pressure range to serve various in-ditch applications. The four-jaw carriage converts to a threejaw configuration making it possible to fuse short pipe stubs, providing maximum versatility in close quarters.

IDEAL MACHINES DOR DICH WORK

The Pit Bull is our most battle machine, being one of the most resistant in our range. The car itself is capable of giving all the force necessary to merge small and medium diameter pipes when using wheels and vehicles mounted on tracks. Our Pitbull machine does not include the carriage, heater, insulated heater stand or hydraulic power unit (HPU). These are components that go separately and can be put into various arrangements to give maximum flexibility in more closed environments.

ROUGH &
TRUSTWORTHY

PERFECT FOR THE HARDEST AND MOST RESISTANT JOBS

Always get the best results with our machines. Still working all day at maximum performance, our Pit Bulls are capable of fusing pipes with outstanding results. They are also capable of giving the same power as any of our fusion or wheeled machines of the same size, being able to adapt comfortably in any vehicle with wheels or McElroy chains. All our machines have a system of jaws and inserts to prevent the pipe from sliding during the fusion.

SMALL
FOOTPRINT

CONSTRUCTED FOR REALLY SMALL SPACES

Our Pit Bulls are built to work in ditches and narrow spaces. All medium diameter machines can be adapted from a four-jaw to a three-jaw to provide an even more compact machine. To make our machines as light as possible and last, all our smaller models are made of hardened aluminum on its entire surface.

BEST QUALITY
AND CONSISTENCY

UNIFORM SUPPLY OF FOCES THANKS TO THE CENTERLINE GUIDANCE

All McElroy Machines have a Centerline Guidance a patented technology which creates an equal distribution of forces. This technology ensures that the center lines of the clamping jaws of the tubes are located in the same plane as the pipeline itself. As a result, we will obtain a high quality union provided by the equal force that is distributed by the center of the diameter of the tube during the fusion.

DATALOGGER®
COMPATIBLE*

THE EASIEST WAY TO RECORD & ANALYZE ALL YOUR FUSION JOINT DATA

All our medium diameter Pit Bull 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.
