PIT BULL 28
2″ IPS – 8″ DIPS (63mm – 225mm)
The Pitbull 28 has been specially designed to perform work in places where it is not necessary to use vehicles with wheels or chains. We are talking about a compact fusion machine (perfect for ditches or very narrow spaces), but at the same time strong and reliable. This model is also available in a combined unit for the fusion of side walls.
PARTS & ACCESSORIES FOR THE PIT BULL 14
Highlighted substitution parts and accessories
Butt Fusion & Mitered Insert Sets
Surface hardened for longer life and are serrated for maximum grip.
Collect and analysis of data on all your fusions
6″ IPS Polyvalve Conversion Kit
Converts a standard 6″ Hot Tapping Tool to a 6″ Polyvalve Hot Tap Tool. Kit includes 3″ OD cutter.
Spare 4 set facer blades, extended life facer blade set and cardibe blades for abrasive materials.
Ideal to store the facer away from dirt and mud.
Heat Shield Protector
This heat shield is ideal when welding two plastic materials with different melting rates. The shield will protect the material that melts faster from over melting.
Carry the heater from your machine easily with the stand from joint to joint with our heater caddy. Retrofit Kit for TracStar 28/250 machines built before 9/2010 and allows the heater and heater bag frame to attach to a TracStar.
Heaters have a microprocessor control and a dial thermometer to monitor temperature. 220-240V, 50/60Hz, 1Ph Heater and 100-120V, 50/60Hz, 1Ph Heater.
Hot Tap Tool
Tool for branch saddle drill. Very suitable for polyethylene pipes.
Hydraulic Extension Hoses
Required for in-ditch fusion and available 25ft Extension Hose Set (4 hoses).
Hydraulic Power Unit
This set includes hydraulic extension hoses, the operator’s manual and HPU. 220-240v, 50/60hz, 3ph HPU and 240v, 60hz, 1ph HPU.
Low Profile Rollers
Low profile rollers.
Pipe Support Stand
Height is adjustable to properly support, position and align pipe to be fused. 8” pipe stand.
This Pipe handling system consists of a series of adjustable racks to store and help install pipe on the job site.
Aids in lifting pipe into the fusion machine and also performs as a pipe stand.
Pyrometer Gear Kit
For a more precise temperature measurement, our pyrometer gear kit will always give you the exact surface temperature.
Self-Centering Stub End Holder
Self-centering stub end holder to hold stub end for butt fusion.
Spare Heater Plate Kit
Heater plates have an anti-stick coating and are required for butt fusion.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
