What steps have you implemented to maximize your joint productivity? Depending on the situation, factors may exist that could be counterproductive, like time or budget constraints, terrain, or the effects of Mother Nature. As such, to optimize efficiency as far as possible, it is important to have the right instruments available to you.
The McElroy Facebook page references someone who needs to operate a pair of fusion machines at the same time because of the sixteen-minute time needed by the project joints to cool properly. The person makes use of the McElroy PolyHorse® to achieve up to 24 joints fused per day while doing his work alone versus using human assistance.
The PolyHorse is comprised of flexible racks designed to aid in the preparation and construction of pipes while on a work site. The unit is designed for the utilization of polypropylene pipes as thin as 90 mm or up to 500 mm wider. For the PolyHorse, you can see a major reduction in labor rates, due to improved working practices that guarantee optimum productivity and fewer risks.
The tubing is discharged into the PolyHorse first, which suggests that it stays out of the way until it is expected to be used. As a result, the floor is clean of risk and unhindered. The PolyHorse also has a PowerAssist converter for the use of a hydraulically driven roller for pipe loading into a fusion device. As with other McElroy products, the PolyHorse works exceptionally well with robust instruments such as the McElroy Pit Bull fusion units.
