Small Spaces Are No Match for the Acrobat

There may be times when you’re working in a space where there is little room to move around. If such a scenario arises, the McElroy Acrobat can be an incredibly vital tool. The machine’s compact design allows simple maneuverability in indoor work spaces and there is also a convenient carriage that allows for a trio or quartet jaw configuration without requiring additional tools. Moreover, the narrow jaws mean most fittings and pipes can be easily fused.

The power of the Acrobat 250 means holding the heater in place in an overhead fusion is no longer required because of the improved lightweight heater and guide rod latching system. Furthermore, the machine has a Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) that efficiently uses power without adding excess bulk, considerably simplifying any need to move it around among several job sites.

The Acrobat 250 Fusion Machine Package available for purchase features the fusion machine, heater, facer, an insulated heater stand, a facer stand, the HPU, 160mm inserts, and more. To learn more about it, visit the Acrobat™ 250 Fusion Machine Package product page.

The Evolution of HDPE

 

 

Modern polyethylene pipe has become a robust and exceptionally reliable solution utilized in multiple industries for an extensive range of applications. Have you ever been curious about how this versatile pipe evolved? Let’s dive a little deeper into the history.

It was 1933 during the month of March that two organic chemists joined forces to create the material we all know today as polyethylene. The pair were testing a multitude of distinct chemicals and created a white, waxy substance that would play an integral role in the development of polyethylene.
The white substance was a result of the testing of benzaldehyde and ethylene and how they reacted to each other. The container the chemists were using to test began to leak, resulting in an escape of pressure. The white substance would go on to bear a considerable resemblance to plastic. By the end of the decade, the material was patented and was being used.

During the 1950s, polyethylene transitioned into what most people know as high-density polyethylene, also by its common HDPE acronym. This development was a result of the work of German chemist Karl Ziegler. By the mid-1950s HDPE was not being used in pipe production. Ziegler’s work would earn him the prestigious 1963 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

More Advantages of PE Pipe

We’ve previously mentioned how useful HDPE pipe is when it comes to its strong corrosion resistance and durability. There are other advantages that make the pipe worth considering for your next job if the circumstances allow it. Let’s explore a few of these.

Ease of installation and maintenance. Because polyethylene (PE) pipe is so flexible, installing it is an easy task. Even if the weather conditions outside are cold, there is little hassle involved in PE pipe installation. On top of that, the pipe can last for several decades, as long as 100 years in some cases. That means there is less of a need to replace pipes, saving time, money, and resources.

Joining systems. The design of PE pipe means it’s practically made to be joined through electrofusion or butt welding as opposed to having to rely on flanges or mechanical fittings. If you already have a fusion machine, this can potentially make the pipe fusion process that much easier.

Environmental friendliness. PE pipe is made of a recyclable type of plastic which can be performed via a triage process. Knowing that the pipe can be recycled and reused for future projects is definitely something to be proud of.

Is Your Machinery Equipment Worth Purchasing or Renting?

 

 

Machinery equipment is a major investment that requires factoring potentially thousands of dollars into your budget. Depending on your needs, you may be wondering whether it’s better to purchase the equipment or rent it out. Let’s explore some considerations to help you make an informed decision.

The convenience versus the cost. Will you benefit in the long term from purchasing the equipment outright? Keep in mind that should you decide to purchase, there will more than likely come a time when you’ll need to do some maintenance or possible repair work on the machine to ensure its proper upkeep.
The level of usage. How often will you be using the machinery equipment? Will you and/or team use it enough to justify its price tag? Maybe renting it for the few times you may need it would work better for your budget if the machine isn’t going to receive a lot of usage.

Location usage. Do you perform a lot of work in other areas beyond your local area? Putting it mildly, shipping a machine can cost a pretty penny, and it can add up if you frequently travel. Renting as needed may help with saving money.

Myths About HDPE Pipe

HDPE pipe has long been praised for its flexibility, resistance to corrosion, durability, and numerous other qualities, which collectively have made it a prime tool for outdoor or buried pipelines. As with any proven technology, however, there are myths surrounding it that you may unintentionally believe are true.

For starters, mechanical joints can indeed be used for buried applications. There is a misconception that these types of joints do not have the same performance as a fused joint, but with right fusion, they can perform well.

Speaking of fusing, while it does remain the well-established standard when it comes to reliability and strength, it’s worth remembering that the strength and integrity of the joints are dependent on several factors including the person performing the joint fusion. Weather conditions, the possibility of surface contamination, all of these may affect the joint. If another method works better than fusing for your purposes, don’t be afraid to use it. The fusion process is also one that is incredibly effective yet takes time. Again, several variables may affect the process such as weather that may force the cooling process to take longer than it normally does.

Do you have pipe fusion needs? We have the equipment to help you take care of the job.

Optimum Pipe Efficiency with Spirolite

Have you tried Spirolite®? This pipe is made from high-density polyethylene material with engineering aimed at applications involving piping. With three decades of successful manufacturing, Spirolite provides a perfect fusion of strength, durability, and reliability over the long term.

Poorly made polyethylene may end up cracking when stress is applied or if it’s exposed to certain chemicals. Should this happen, it results in something called “environmental stress cracking”. To avoid such a scenario, Spirolite is manufactured using materials designed to resist these stress cracks. In fact, the materials exceed ASTM D-3350 requirements to ensure the highest-rated pipe material. Spirolite is also resistant to the effects of Mother Nature. In fact, it can be stored for years while being exposed to the elements without having to worry that factors such as ultraviolet rays from the sun will affect the durability.

Spirolite is primarily designed for use with buried applications, and yet its strong corrosion and chemical resistance means it is great for use in industrial waste disposal or sanitary sewer applications. There is no need to worry about bacteriological growth or rust that may affect the pipe, ensuring the pipe can remain in place for many years to come without needing replacement.
