TracStar 500 Series 3

Posted by Ben Murphy on

The McElroy TracStar® 500 was the first fusion machine in the world to be mounted on a track system, making it mobile in almost any terrain. The TracStar 500 is the flagship of McElroy machines because its success spawned the entire TracStar line of fusion equipment.  The Series 3 adds additional productivity enhancing features, such as indexer-mounted facer and heater that are powered by the machine, standard Hydraulic Clamping, dual pipe lifts and an economy engine throttle setting to conserve fuel.

The TracStar 500 Series 3 Automatic is also available.  This machine guides the operator through a step-by-step procedure for fusing pipe.  The automated option offers automated control and monitoring over the heat, soak, fuse and cool cycles of the fusion process.  A Hydraulic clamping kit is available for all TracStar 500s.
