The next generation of McElroy TracStar® fusion machines offers the industry a sophisticated, rugged and productive fusion machine. Numerous improvements have advanced the level of technology available while simultaneously hardening that technology to make the entire fusion experience more reliable. The TracStar iSeries features new emissions-compliant engines, a CAN bus control system, along with numerous hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical upgrades. Integrated, software-controlled machine options from manual to fully automatic improves operator consistency and adherence to standards.
The self-contained machine features an on-board generator for powering the heater and facer, which is now positioned between the fixed jaws for easier pipe transfer. The carriage can be easily removed for in-ditch use. The engine is available with advanced emission control technology that meets the EPA's latest Tier 4 standards, without the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
