The current manufacturer approved
method of installation consists of using a block of wood and a sledge hammer. This
is dangerous and can cause fusion failure. Some crews scrape the pipe so the coupling can easily be pushed on by hand. Scraping the pipe too much eliminates a tight fit that coupling and pipe manufacturers specify for a successful joint.
The GMI Pusher hydraulically installs a coupling in just seconds. Our process ensures a solid installation with only one scrape of the pipe.
The GMI Pusher is easy to use. It can be powered by multiple sources including hydraulic quick couplings of a butt fusion machine. A 12-volt or 110-volt pump can be used, or even a hand pump. Consolidated supplies them all.
To handle various sizes of couplings and pipe, use the inserts from a butt fusion machine with the GMI carriage inserts. Most contractors already have inserts. But if not, inserts are readily available from your local CPS branch to buy or rent.
