McElroy has designed the Hornet, the first all-in-one fusion tool for outlet fusion of polypropylene pipeline. The patent-pending Hornet helps installers maintain perfect alignment of the pipe and fitting for more efficient and accurate fusions with less time and strain compared to manual methods. The patent-pending “V-base” design helps installers maintain perfect alignment of the pipe and fitting for more efficient and accurate fusions compared to manual methods. With a small footprint and weighing 13 pounds, it is capable of performing outlet fusions in any orientation, ideal for overhead and vertical fusions in tight spaces. The tool works with all McElroy socket heaters and fusion outlet adapters for polypropylene pipe from 20mm to 63mm on mains up to 630mm.
