Accurately test the fusion joints with our McSnapper. This is a machine for the impact tensile test that has been specifically designed for polyolefin materials. A machine specifically built to meet the standards and requirements of ASTM F2634, standard test method for laboratory testing of polystyrene (PE) butt fusion joints by tensile testing.
The McSnapper has great versatility. It can be used both for the development of new materials, as well as to check the quality of existing materials or in fusion compatibility to determine the batch uniformity, resistance or fusibility of pipes and fittings.
|Maximum Wall Thickness||2.6″|
|Length||32″ (813 mm)|
|Width||48″ (1219 mm)|
|Height||68″ (1727 mm)|
A PIECE OF MIND IN YOUR PIPELINE
Never leave pipes put at random. A well-installed plastic pipe offers great durability and longevity and can be operational for decades. Therefore, we always recommend using our assurance tools to ensure all your merger operations and to know that your mergers comply with all standards.
PROOF OF FUSION JOINTS IN THE FIELD
In the past, to carry out a joint test, a piece of coupon had to be cut from the pipeline and sent to a laboratory to analyze it and wait for the results to return. Nowadays, thanks to the McElroy In Field traction tester and the guided lateral curved tester, any operator is able to do this test quickly, easily and with all the quality guarantees in the same place of work.
RAPID RESULTS THANKS TO A MANUAL HYDRAULIC FEED
The Side Guided Bending Tester and Tester and the In Field Traction Tester have hydraulic hand pumps that help perform persistent tests in the workplace without the need for additional power. The guided bending tester makes a quick and safe “double return” test, placing the entire thickness of the wall under tension to validate the ductility of the joint. In the case of the Field Tensile Tester, the test is destructive with 2 “IPS coupons and larger with a wall up to 5” thick. Do all the tests in just a few minutes to make sure the joints are 100% reliable.
QUALIFY OPERATORS, STRENGTH AND FUSIBILITY OF PIPES AND ACCESSORIES
Use our tools when you are about to start a new project or at the beginning of a new working day to assess the machine operator, the melting process and the pipe materials. With the field voltage tester and the guided lateral curvature tester you can perform a quick analysis in the same place of work, while the McNsapper will give you a deeper test that meets the ASTMF2634 standard for laboratory test procedures that they use tensile tests.
