McElroy Manufacturing Inc. has brought hydraulic capability to its Pipe Stand line for 4-inch to 20-inch (200-mm to 500-mm) pipe to help align thermoplastic pipe more efficiently on butt fusion job sites.

The Hydraulically Adjustable Pipe Stand features hand-pumped hydraulic lifting, which gives the operator the ability to adjust the height of the stand while the pipe is still supported on the stand. The hydraulic-adjusting feature eliminates the need to remove the pipe from the stand so the chain and height can be adjusted by hand.

Like McElroy’s other line of pipe-handling tools, this further reduces the demand for extra equipment needed to maneuver and hold pipe in place, which saves time and boosts productivity.

“Designing products to better serve the needs of our customers has always been the driving force behind McElroy,” says Chip McElroy, president and chief executive officer of McElroy. “We’re excited to offer this new innovation which will help streamline fusion operations involving long lines of pipe.”

The Hydraulically Adjustable Pipe Stands are tough and durable with the ability to support 2,750 pounds of pipe. It is a well-crafted tool featuring soft rollers to protect the pipe and reduce scratching.

McElroy Pipe Stands can be upgraded so that they are hydraulically adjustable. Also available are a cylinder kit and a hand-pump kit. Each hand pump can operate on up to five pipe stands by hooking and unhooking to the pipe stand cylinder. They are compact, lightweight and portable. For more information, go to
