Optimum Productivity with McElroy Machines

Why are McElroy machines relied on by hundreds of thousands of customers? They get the job done faster, safer, and with less necessary cooling time. To give you a brief idea of how these machines take care of important jobs compared to standard machines, let’s elaborate a bit.

With hydraulic jaws, McElroy machines have no issue safely clamping around the pipe at once. Standard machines often require individual tightening of each clamp, thereby reducing productivity and efficiency.

Like the jaws, the Facer movement is powered hydraulically which means lowering and raising can be done in mere seconds. In standard machines, extra equipment like cranes needd to be placed and removed, taking more time and creating potentially dangerous conditions for workers.

McElroy machines propel themselves on a tough track system able to move without issue even on rugged terrain, which means it can move across fusion points with little issue. Standard hydraulic machines requiring loading and moving by truck, which takes extra time.

On job sites, time is typically of the essence and sticking to budget is imperative. You may find an upfront investment in a McElroy machine will save you thousands of dollars in the long-term.

Save Money and Ease Installation with PE Pipe

Have you been thinking about using polyethylene pipe (PE) for your next job? There are numerous advantages you may wish to consider the next time you need to perform pipe fusion. The fact that the pipe is incredible lightweight is only one of them.

Because of the design of PE pipe, it provides excellent chemical resistance, a huge advantage if you’re dealing with the transport of alkalis, detergents, tension depressants, mineral oils or fermentation products which may cause corrosion and, therefore, damage the pipe.

Speaking of corrosion, the properties of PE pipe do not undergo alteration when they are exposed to chemicals. Hence, issues like rot, rust, mold or mildew are not a problem nor will you need to deal with the possible growth of algae, bacteria or fungi.

In addition to being lightweight, PE pipe is easy to install and it is economical. Even in cold conditions, the pipe can be bent if necessary and on top of that, it will last a long time, Good quality PE pipe can last as long as 100 years in some cases which reduces the need to replace the pipe.

When it comes to fusion, PE pipe allows for multiple joining systems. It’s yet another reason to consider PE pipe for your next job.

Clearing up Some Things About Pipe

When something’s been around long enough, eventually some untruths and myths may develop around it. HDPE pipe is no exception to this, and we’re here to dispel some of these common myths associated with this type of pipe and its mechanical joining.

Let’s clear up some potential misconceptions when it comes to burying the pipe. Modern pipe has evolved enough to the point that it’s designed for different purposes, and that includes being buried. On top of that, innovative pipe solutions like Fusio-Tech UV Black Piping are designed to withstand the effects of ultraviolet rays with their protective coating.

In regards to pipe fusion, there is more to strength and integrity of the joints. The fusion will rely on many factors including the person tasked with performing the fusion job. The elements, the risk of surface contamination, all of these may play a role in how the joint ends up. The fusion process is highly reliable and effective but it does take a considerable amount of time and it may take longer due to circumstances outside of your control such as the weather.

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.

Improve the Life of Your Machinery Equipment

Machinery equipment is an important albeit pricey investment. Hence, it’s important to stay proactive and ensure that ongoing maintenance is a top priority so it becomes easier to identify potential issues before they can become an expensive, time-consuming repair.

For starters, make your maintenance procedure more than just regularly changing or lubricating filters. Take the time to commit to your machines by fully understanding how they work and thoroughly reading the manuals. Any work that’s performed by you or a qualified person on the maintenance team should be written down so that everyone is on the same page as to what work was performed. You can never be too detailed in this aspect.

Have you examined the fluids? It’s one of the easiest and most accurate methods of seeing what may be going on “under the hood” of your machines. The better understanding you have of how your machines operate internally, the better able you are to anticipate problems before they turn into a major issue.

Upgrade Your Pipe in 2019

Are you considering upgrading to HDPE in 2019? Last year, we discussed a few of the benefits of using HDPE pipe including its powerful resistance to corrosion and the fact it has an extraordinarily long service life, which creates savings over the long term. In case you need more reasons to upgrade this year, consider the following

Ability to resist fatigue. The flexibility and ductile nature of HDPE versus other pipes that are rigid make a strong case. Due to this, the pipe quite able to deal with fatigue, especially in applications that may require something like distributing water. If significant pressure is involved, you can rest assured HDPE will do an admirable job.

Crack propagation is reduced. Commonly referred to by its SCGR acronym, slow crack propagation is the term used to reference the strong resistance properties of HDPE. Since it is a slow process, using HDPE in harsh environments allows its optimum construction to be on full display while ensuring you the satisfaction of the strongest protection from whatever Mother Nature throws at you.

Repair and joining are easy. Polyethylene (PE) has gained a penchant for durability and ruggedness. Due to this, joining PE pipe together is a process that is remarkably simple. In addition, the pipe typically comes with detachable joints to make the joining process that much simpler.

Polyethylene and Polypropylene: What’s the Difference?

We’ve talked a lot about polyethylene pipe, but for those that are just getting started with the many benefits of HDPE, there may be some confusion. There is also polypropylene, a word that sounds somewhat like polyethylene yet has its distinct characteristics.

Similar to polyethylene, polypropylene is indeed a type of plastic. However, unlike polyethylene, polypropylene is able to mold after it has reached a certain temperature. Once the material has cooled down, it will once again become a solid. It can, therefore, be used as a type of plastic or it may have applications as a fiber. Its melting pot is also significantly higher than polyethylene and it is known for its strong stability. For example, when used as a hinge, this plastic can opened and closed numerous times without issue.

In terms of physical properties, polyethylene and polypropylene have lots of similarities. However, the former is, as mentioned, better able to withstand certain temperatures like cold, for example. Polyethylene is also well-suited for use as an electrical insulator.

Choose HDPE for Your Utility

Water utilities have a number of options when it comes to their pipe needs, and HDPE pipe is certainly worth considering. Is it the right solution for you? We can provide a couple of reasons why it’s an option worth entertaining and possibly implementing.

HDPE is highly effective at weathering the effects of the environment and Mother Nature, which means it is incredibly resilient even when conditions are rough. On top of that, it is practically leak-proof thanks to its thermal fusion which ensures a solid connection of pipe free of even tiny leaks Utilities do not have to spend valuable resources dealing with high levels of wastewater or sending out staff to examine leaks.

There may be a scenario where a trench isn’t as straight as it could or should be. With HDPE pipe, there is less of a need to worry that the pipe will crack from being bent. Because of its material, it is highly resilient to being bent and its flexibility also makes it resistant to fatigue, significantly reducing the odds of weak points developing in the pipe.
