TRACSTAR 500 SERIES 3

6″ IPS – 20″ OD (160mm – 500mm)

The world’s first fusion machine that works with a track system. The Tracstar 500 is McElroy’s flagship and has generated the rest of the machines from the TracStar range. The new Tracstar 500 Series 3 has a whole series of extra features to further improve your productivity. It has a flange mounted on an indexing and the machine itself aligns the heater. Also standard hydraulic clamps, double pipe lifts and an economical throttle setting to save fuel.

For a fully automatic control over the heat cycles, fuse soaking and cooling we have a fully automated model.

A NEW REVOLUTION FOR THE INDUSTRY

Ease of movement and maneuvering to make long pipe mergers is possible with the number one market option, the TracStar. Instead of wheels they have rubber tracks that are self-propelled and allow these machines to overcome irregular terrain and climb slopes of up to 30%. All Tracstar have independent electrical equipment. The trolley is mounted on the chassis itself and is driven by tracks to make the loading of the pipe and the movement along the pipe even easier. The car can also be disassembled to work in tight spaces like a trench. The Tracstar is available in all types of sizes for melting tubers from 2 “IPS to 48” OD.

SELF-CONTAINED
DIESEL ENGINE

MORE PRODUCTIVITY AT WORK

All our Tracstar machines have a self-contained liquid-cooled or turbo-diesel engine. These engines have a fuel tank large enough to merge and be operating for a full day of work. Our newest and largest model, the Tracstar 1200, comes with an emission control engine with the latest advances that meets all industry standards. Tier 3 of the EPA, which eliminates the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

READY FOR
THE DITCH

REMOVABLE TRANSPORTATION FOR USE IN REDUCED SPACES

All our machines in the Tracstar range come with an interchangeable 4-jaw carriage. This can be removed very easily to perform mergers in smaller spaces and ditches. The outer clamp and skid can also be removed from the cart. So we turn it into a 3-jaw car and we have a smaller fusion machine.

VEHICLE MOUNTED
ON THE TRACK

WORK UP TO THE HEAVIEST TERRAINS

The Tracstar has double rubber tracks to move with ease on any terrain, whether mud, snow or desert sand, the Tracstar are able to overcome up to 30% slopes. Its track wheel system has a zero-degree turning radius that shoots the weight evenly throughout the machine. This means that the machine never sinks on soft soils.

The tracks help to reduce the damage that the asphalt can produce, which also guarantees its use in the city. It is not necessary to use cranes since these machines can be driven directly from the warehouse to the workplace. We make it as easy as possible to adjust the tension in the tracks when necessary and the track components, in themselves, are replaceable.

GENERATOR IN
THE OWN MACHINE

YOU WILL NOT NEED EXTERNAL ENERGY SOURCES

All Tracstar have an on-board generator. They generate their own electricity and hydraulic energy, to give the operator all the comfort. This can be welding all day and does not have the need to carry extra machinery or generators separately.

LEADERS OF THE PLASTIC
PIPE WELDING INDUSTRY

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE ALWAYS GUARANTEED

All Plastic Pipe Welding machines and equipment are specifically designed to withstand the most adverse conditions and climates. We guarantee that our machines will last for years. But if that were not enough for you, all our machines come with the maximum warranty period possible in the field of plastic welding, 5 years warranty.
