At McElroy Parts, we specialize in providing quality equipment. Our patent-protected Centerline Guidance, which is included on the majority of our fusion machines, is just one way we ensure that our machines deliver reliable results.
When a pipe is clamped inside the jaw of a fusion machine, force must be delivered from the machine into the pipe in order to successfully fuse the pipe ends together. Centerline Guidance is a balanced force system established by McElroy that helps control how force is applied to the jaws of McElroy equipment.
Whenever force is applied during the fusion process, an equal and opposite response occurs. When pressure is applied, the pipe pushes back against the machine. If the fusion force is applied anywhere other than the pipe's centerline, the pipe's face will experience an imbalance of force, causing the jaws to deflect. On a McElroy machine, force is applied symmetrically along the horizontal and vertical centerlines due to McElroy’s patented centerline guidance. This enables the applied force to be horizontally and vertically centered.
McElroy equipment is designed to resist the harsh conditions seen in our industry. We are confident that your machine will perform to its maximum capacity. In addition, we offer the longest warranty in the industry for each piece of equipment – five years.
