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.

Reasons to Consider Machinery Equipment Rentals

We’ve mentioned on previous occasions our machinery equipment rental options. Rentals provide an alternative to purchasing a machine or paying for something you may only need for a certain project. Let’s explore a couple of additional reasons why renting from MIMECO may be a viable solution.

Get rid of the upfront investment. Machinery equipment by names like McElroy cost thousands of dollars, which translates to a considerable capital cost. Should you decide to sell, you may not receive the money you would want for the machine if you keep it around for several years. Hence, renting will allow you to put that money towards other project needs.

Reduce long-term expenses. Today’s machinery equipment is sophisticated and tremendously powerful but like any machine, it will require maintenance to ensure optimum performance over the long term. Whether it’s checking to make sure fluids are at proper levels or the hydraulics, you’ll need to set time aside for machine upkeep.

Better storage options. Machines like those by McElroy are continually improved to reduce size and weight while still getting the job done. However, these are still large, unwieldy machines that should be kept in an area where they are not exposed to the elements or factors that may damage them. Considering their size, renting them instead of finding where to keep them is an option worth evaluating.

The PolyPorter Makes Pipe Handling Easy

McElroy tools are generally considered the benchmark when it comes to the most effective tool to get the job done in a professional and safe manner. Workers that typically rely on a separate dolly and pipe stand may wish to consider the McElroy PolyPorter®, a combination of these tools presented in an easy to use yet robust package where operators can load pipe into a fusion machine with effortless hassle.polyporter

The design of the PolyPorter is intended to mimic what it would be like if a pipeline contractor were to use it. Thanks to this, the PolyPorter does a superb job of its intended purpose. Instead of requiring multiple workers, just one person can load a length of pipe without the risk of strains or potential injuries provided proper safety measures are being used. Once loaded, the pipe pushing the pipe through a roller-equipped hook arm onto a fusion machine is an incredibly simple process. The PolyPorter also has a handy jack so operators can lower or raise the tool to the proper height and ensure it is level. When working on terrain that may be uneven, this can be tremendously helpful.

Ready to kick your productivity up a notch? The PolyPorter Pipe Handler is available through our McElroy Parts store.

Work Smarter with the Rugged DataLogger 6

datalogger6A key component in virtually any fusion job site is making sure that all fusion joint data has been recorded accurately. Proper joint data allows the peace of mind of knowing that the joint was fused using supported standards along with the proper pressure and times. In the past, this information would have to be recorded manually which can prove to be cumbersome and does not allow to make the most efficient use of time. With the McElroy Datalogger® 6, all of this information can be stored in a central location and kept up-to-date at the press of a button.

The DataLogger is an Android-powered tablet that will record all of the parameters of the fusion process, including details such as heat soak times and heating pressure. The tablet itself is designed for real world use, capable of withstanding bumps with its ruggedness so that you don’t have to constantly worry about damaging it. It is also IP67-rated. The tablet features a pair of cameras to capture existing conditions, a barcode scanner to easily enter fitting and pipe information, and its wireless sync feature allows you to easily share fusion joint records.

You can read more about the DataLogger 6 on the MIMECO website. Should you wish to purchase the tablet, please visit the McElroy DataLogger 6 page on the McElroy Parts website.
