NET PROFIT: Fusion Technologies, Inc. will dramatically increase your fusion productivity, quality, safety and net profitability on your project.     

  

Quality control, safety & production

Ø      The Construction Innovation Forum (CIF) selected Fast-Fusion, LLC Automated Mobile Fusion Technology, as recipient of the 2006 NOVA Award. (www.cif.org)

This award honors global innovations in the construction industry that improves the quality, efficiency
and cost effectiveness of construction.

Ø      MFT20 fusion machines utilize a patented, industry accepted computer controlled fusion weld cooling system. This system dramatically increases production capacity and number of fusions completed per hour over any other fusion machine offered. 

Ø      The MFT20 computer controlled cooling system is qualified in accordance with ASTM D2657, PPI TR-33, Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 Part 192 and ANSI B31. Visit www.fast-fusion.com for review of independent fusion integrity test data.

Ø      Programmable Logic Center (PLC) for programming fusion settings, data collection and storage

Ø      MFT20 all weather cab enables safe, efficient, quality controlled fusion of pipe in strong winds, pouring rain, sleet, heavy snow or darkness.  Why stop production due to inclement weather?

Ø      MFT20 “quick change” makes it capable of 2” IPS – 20” IPS HDPE fusions depending upon which McElroy Mfg. fusion unit is mounted inside. 

 

 

Fusion Technologies, Inc. utilizes McElroy Manufacturing fusion equipment on all our projects

Why use the McElroy Fusion Machine vs. other equipment? McElroy is a company with over 30 years of fusion machine manufacturing experience.  They were the first company to patent the centerline guidance systems, and the first to manufacture a self-contained fusion machine.  Their machines give the highest quality design and manufacture consistent fusion with reliable results, field durability, safe, easy efficient operation, and minimal maintenance. 

Patented Centerline Guidance: The patented centerline guidance system is where the center line of the guide rods is located in a plane, which passes through the centerline of the pipe or fittings being fused.  The result is an equal distribution of force around the interfaces, resulting in uniform bead formation and consistent joint quality.

Highly Efficient Clamping Mechanism: Multiple deep serrations in the jaws and inserts combined with the thrust bearings in the clamp knobs minimize the force required to clamp and round pipe.  This improves operator efficiency and pre-longs the life of the machine.

Self Contained: Units with ranges covering 2" to 8" all the way up to 12" to 36" are available as self contained machines.  These are powered by gasoline or diesel engines and are available in may options.  No external power source is needed. 

Hydraulically Powered Pipe Lift: The hydraulically powered pipe lift raises and lowers with the pull of a lever.  This assists the operator with pipe handling and removal.  This heavy duty "V" roller ensures safe tracking through the machine loading and unloading.  This also allows for the highest level of efficiency and productivity in the field.

Semi-Automatic hydraulic Control System:  The semi-automatic hydraulic manifold block design allows for presetting of facing, heating and fusion pressures.  The constant, continuous pressure provided by the self-contained hydraulic system provides adequate pressure to ensure consistently good fusion joints.  This semi-automatic operation also simplifies operator training and ensures consistent repeatable performance.

Hydraulically Operated Facer: The hydraulically operated facer has sufficient power to face even the heaviest pipe wall with ease.  The cutter block rotates maintenance free sealed ball bearings and the facer stops ensure a square face off.  The locking mechanism safely locks the facer in the open or closed position.  There are three carbide tipped blades on each side of the facer to provide quick facing and these blades are very easily replaced and require no adjustment during facing, once again saving you valuable time.  It is possible that the facer may stall during pipe facing from too much pressure being applied. If a hydraulic facer does stall, there is no damage to it.  If an electric facer stalls, the brushes must be replaced every time! Another McElroy advantage.

Lightweight Heater: The McElroy lightweight heaters are revolutionary in the industry.  They have replaceable bolt on the butt fusion heater controls and heat up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit in less than 20 minutes.  They have replaceable bolt on butt fusion heaters adapter plates and come with an insulated heater stand for protection and convenience.  Unlike other heaters with flexible Teflon coated sheet or McElroy heaters are designs with a solid aluminum surface Teflon coated plate which ensures proper and equal heat distribution.

 

The No.14 PitBull is designed to butt fuse tees, ells, and other fittings with consistent high quality results. The machine’s semi–automatic locking cam system maintains force during the cooling cycle. The machine is primarily made of surface hardened aluminum for light weight and durability. The jaws and inserts have multiple serrations for maximum grip on the pipe.

       

TracStar No.28                               TracStar No.412                           TracStar No.618

2” IPS – 8” DIPS                            4” IPS – 12” DIPS                          6” IPS – 18” IPS

 

The TracStar No.28, No.412 & No.618 is self-contained, self-propelled, all-terrain hydraulic fusion machines. The machines butt fusion most fittings without special holders or removal of the outer jaw. It fits into a standard long box truck bed for easy transport. The carriage may be removed for in-ditch use.

                            

      TracStar No.900                                                           Irrigation Project
12” IPS – 36” IPS                                                                                      

The TracStar No.900 is a hydraulic fusion machine that is self-contained, self-propelled all-terrain mobile unit. It will butt fuse all pipe sizes from 12” IPS - 36” OD (340mm – 900mm). A wireless remote provides full control of the TracStar 900 for precision placement, optimum visibility and safety on the jobsite. The carriage may be removed for in-ditch use for large diameter fusions. It’s powered by a quiet, liquid cooled Kubota™ diesel engine.
