Flanged tapping saddles from AVK

New range of flanged tapping saddles

09-10-2017

We are happy to introduce a new range of flanged tapping saddles complementing our existing range. The new range consist of “slim line” flanged tapping saddles, flanged tapping saddles for under pressure tapping as well as dedicated stirrups and shut-off blades.

The saddles are available for PE and PVC pipes with external pipe diameter 160-355 mm as well as ductile iron and fiber cement pipes with external diameter 100-350 mm.

The saddle is mounted by means of dedicated stainless steel stirrups, using two 55 mm stirrups for mounting on hard surface pipes and one 265 mm stirrup for plastic pipes. For under pressure tapping a special tilting shut-off blade is used for sealing under the tapping process.
 
The saddle heads are coated with min. 250µ epoxy coating and the main gasket sealing towards the pipe is made of drinking water approved EPDM rubber produced in our own rubber factory. The slim line tapping saddles are delivered with special bolt clams to help holding the bolts in place under installation. The stainless steel stirrups come with antifriction coated bolts and nuts to avoid galling.
