One of the more popular features of large-diameter MegaMc® fusion machines is the hydraulic clamping that tightens the jaw clamps. Now, users can retrofit their Rolling and TracStar® 412s, as well as their Rolling and TracStar® 618s, with hydraulic clamping that replaces the standard manual crank clamp knobs.

The retrofit kit can be installed by your local McElroy distributor and includes a manifold block that is added to the carriage and controls the two fixed jaw cylinders and two movable jaw cylinders independently. Included in the kit are two inner-upper jaws for adjusting high-low that are specific to clamping-enabled machines.

Features

  • Increased productivity due to not requiring manual cranking of clamp knobs
  • Less time spent working with jaw operation and more time spent fusing pipe
  • Quick disconnect hydraulic fittings are provided for fusing tees, ells, and tie-ins
  • Retrofit kit can be installed at your local McElroy distributor

These kits are compatible with any TracStar No. 412/PitBull No.412 and TracStar No. 618/PitBull No. 618 machine. Also compatible are the 412 and 618 Rolling machines introduced in 2003 under the model number series 1248100 & 1869100. New Rolling and TracStar machines can be ordered with hydraulic clamping preinstalled.
