Service Saddles provide a quick, dependable means of tapping pipe for branch connections, 1/2" through 2-1/2". Use of economical JCM Service Saddles eliminates problems common to direct taps, such as leaking threads, or split pipe; and the saddle reinforces the critical connection.
High pressure performance is assured by the broad, pressure activated gasket. Permanently set in a retaining cavity, the contoured gasket produces a positive initial seal, which improves with an increase in line pressure.
These service saddles are designed for maximum safety and performance. The wrap-around design, wide skirt, and wide straps, support and reinforce the pipe while providing excellent stability to the saddle. The heavy duty design of these saddles provides strength and mass for long term service.
Body: Ductile Iron ASTM A536 Straps: Models 401, 402 - Electro Galvanized Steel; Models 403, 404, 405, 402 - Bands, Bolts, Nuts and Washers are 18-8 Type 304 Stainless Steel. Gasket: Compounded for use with water, salt solutions, mild acids, bases. Finish: Models 401, 402, 403, 404 - Standard Shop Coat Primer: Heavy coat of corrosion resistant metal primer. Models 405, 402 - Fusion Plastic Coating: fusion bonded, high density blue plastic coating, 12 mils minimum thickness with a dielectric strength of over 12,000 volts.
The 402 Double Strap Service Saddle provides a simple, dependable means of tapping all types of pipe for branch connections, 1/2" through 2-1/2". With its wide body, large sealed outlet area, and heavy duty wrap around design, the 402 is also an excellent way to repair holes, pin holes, and leaking. ??The saddle is also exceptionally effective when making 3/4" and 1" direct taps.
Saddles, for pipe sizes 14" through 24", incorporate two fabricated wide electro-galvanized steel straps, which provide increased stability necessary for larger sizes of pipe.
