POLYHORSE

A new system to handle pipes that consists of a series of adjustable racks to store and help to install the pipes in the workplace. Among its advantages are to reduce labor costs, give an efficient environment and much less dangerous. You will increase productivity by 150%.

The operation consists in unloading the PE pipe of the delivery truck directly with the PolyHorse, where it is out of the way and out of the way until it is necessary. The operator rolls the tubing through the rack and onto the integral tubing rollers where it is easily loaded into a McElroy fusion machine. This eliminates the costs of additional lifting equipment and labor.

SPECIFICATIONS

INCREASE YOUR WORK EFFICIENCY REGARDLESS OF THE TUBE SIZES

The Polyhorse is the most productive way to handle and store pipes of all kinds in the workplace. Get a safer work environment and reduce labor, expenses and time. The Polyhorse works through a series of adjustable frames available in two sizes: the standard PolyHorse®, for 3 “IPS to 20” OD (90 mm to 500 mm) or the MegaMc® PolyHorse®, for larger tubes from 20 “OD to 48” OD (500 mm to 1200 mm). They are designed to contain enough tubing for one day of fusion work and allow a single operator to load and align the tubing without the use of additional machinery.

SAVE IN TIME
AND IN WORKMANSHIP

MANIPULATE THE TUBES ONLY ONCE

At the moment the delivery truck appears with the tubes, these can be loaded directly onto the shelves of the Polyhorse. The system will take care of the pipeline from the delivery forward, eliminating the need for a piece of heavy equipment to tend constantly to the next length of the pipe. An operator can efficiently load and align each pipe bar in the fusion machine. The MegaMc PolyHorse includes remote control operations from the fusion machine.

POWER
YOUR TUBES

INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY THANKS TO ROLLERS ASSISTED BY ALL THE POWER

It diminishes the tension of the operator and the machine and increases the productivity with both of the models of our machines; The Polyhorse standard and the MegaMc PolyHorse. This machine can be purchased as a manual model or with our hydraulic PowerAssist system that will help you maneuver the tube up, down and inside the fusion car. Our other model, the MegaMc PolyHorse, has a pipe support with a motor and a caterpillar that is operated by remote control. This offers up to 24 inches of lateral movement and 34 inches of vertical movement to align the tube curved or outside the circumference.

SAVE
MONEY

We all know how valuable time is. Save on costs and get more productive. When organizing a full load of tubing in the racks of a PolyHorse, in one place, the costs of heavy machinery are drastically reduced. Instead of tying heavy equipment to meet the needs of the fusion machine, the PolyHorse allows the fusion machine operator to load and align the pipeline without assistance, decreasing the downtime and configuration time between each fusion.
