HDPE/MDPE Hydraulic Fusion Quick Guide - Setting the Fusing Pressure

Posted by Ben Murphy on


Calculating the FUSING pressure is easily done using the McElroy McCalc® app.  The app can be downloaded from McElroy’s website at www.mcelroy.com/mccalc.  Once the app is downloaded, follow the steps listed below:

  • Use the McElroy McCalc app to calculate the FUSING pressure.
  • Shift the SELECTOR VALVE down into the FUSING position.
  • Close the carriage.
  • When the pipe ends have come together, adjust the FUSING PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE until the gauge shows the calculated FUSING pressure.
