PIPA is pleased to confirm PE pipe welding equipment supplier, McElroy Manufacturing Inc., has come onboard as a Gold Sponsor of Ozpipe XIX technical conference.

McElroy is the manufacturer of The Talon™ 2000 welding machine, a self-propelled vehicle with the unique ability to safely lift 2 metre diameter polyethylene pipe from the ground, position it to be fused and move from joint to joint down the pipeline.

The Talon™ 2000 played a key role in one of the Australian case studies to be featured at Ozpipe XIX, which examines the logistics involved in transporting the 26-tonne machine more than 15,000 km across two continents to the Victorian job site to weld a DN1800 polyethylene pipeline.

For information on The Talon™ 2000 and their range of butt fusion welding equipment visit the McElroy Manufacturing website.
