Connectra's 28CQ is built for tight spaces. In the ditch, on the piperack, wherever room is at a premium, the 28CQ is ideal. Its straight forward design makes training quick and operation easy, reducing maintenance costs and downtime. And with its quiet and durable facer motor the 28CQ can handle any job. Like all Connectra equipment you can expect low maintenance costs and a rapid return on your investment.


  • Two-clamp, lightweight design allows easy, in-the-ditch access.
  • Ball bearing facer is powered by durable electric motor.
  • Pressure gauge offers excellent control of fusion pressures.
  • Simple controls allow quick training and easy operation.
  • Ported for DataConnect or other competitive data recorders.
  • Rugged design with no “bells and whistles" means less maintenance expense.
  • Limited three-year warranty.


We offer a full range of accessories including mitered inserts and the 28CQ cart. The cart allows easy field mobility for the entire unit.
