Description

The 14M is a highly versatile butt fusion machine that uses centerline applied force. This equipment is able to fuse IPS, metric and DIPS pipe as well as fittings, valves, tees, elbows and pups. The unit’s independent locking mechanism on the joining assembly is semi-automatic and holds fusion force throughout the cool-down cycle. The 14M is easy to learn and operate. Expect minimal maintenance costs on your 14M and a rapid return on your investment.

Features

  • True centerline fusion force provides even loading around the circumference of the pipe ends for symmetrical bead formation.
  • Accommodates an impressive range of pipe sizes – from 3/4 inch IPS through 4 inch DIPS and 25 through 110 mm.
  • Detachable handles can be arranged to permit fusion from either side of the joining assembly.
  • Lightweight, symmetrical facing assembly allows mounting onto the joining assembly in either direction.
  • Lightweight, narrow-profile heater for easy, one-hand operation.
  • Rugged design with no “bells and whistles” means less maintenance expense.
  • A superior piece of equipment at an extraordinary price.
  • Limited three-year warranty.

Accessories

Ask us about snap in place liners for fusing smaller diameter pipe and pipe leveling outriggers.

The 14M modular cart has a wide base. Its front wheels rotate 360 degrees and its front axle pivots for easy handling on uneven terrain. All components can be integrated into a single unit for transport to and around the job site.
