Tapping Saddles for Hot Tapping

 
402 Double Strap Service Saddle

IFT Service Saddles provide a quick, dependable means of tapping pipe for branch connections of 1/2” through 2-1/2”. Use of economical JCM Service Saddles eliminate problems common to direct taps, such as leaking threads or split pipe, and 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 increases with a 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.

The 402 and 406 saddles, with their wide bodies and large sealed outlet areas, provide an excellent means of repairing holes, pin holes and leaking 3/4" and 1" direct taps.

412 Carbon Steel Tapping Saddle

Built-in benefits make these heavy fabricated steel sleeves increasingly popular for making larger taps on all types of pipe. By placing the design emphasis on eliminating problems inherent with older pipe and field installations, IFT 412 Tapping Sleeves have taken the complexity out of tapping larger pipe.

Built in range assures proper fit on more than one class of pipe - reducing inventory requirements and the chance of not having the right size sleeve. Ease of assembly eliminates extra equipment, time and specially trained personnel. Ready availability means taps can be made with out long delays - even taps on special sizes of pipe - or services requiring high pressure flanges.

   
415 Concrete Cylinder Sleeve
The IFT 415 Tapping Sleeve, for Concrete Steel Cylinder Pipe, is the standard in the industry for fast safe taps on Concrete Pressure Pipe. Designed to meet the AWWA M-9 Manual, the IFT 415 is the leading sleeve preferred by PCCP tapping contractors. These fabricated tapping sleeves are designed to reinforce the pipe and provide for easy installation, while providing maximum safety. There are many unique features and options available on these sleeves. Unique to these sleeves are the following: Separate body and tapping outlet, broad cross section gasket, gusseted pressure plate, combination gland/draw flange, load bearing set screw, grout seal assembly, and an epoxy coated waterway.
   
432 All Stainless Steel Sleeve SALE

EXTRA BOLTING POWER...The true tapping sleeve design of this sleeve incorporates replaceable, self-aligning bolts, which facilitate the conversion of high bolt torques to high gasket pressure, and it can be torqued to 125 ft. lbs. This increases gasket sealing pressure and pressure holding capability. The extra bolting power assures that the gasket will seal the full circumference of the pipe. This provides insurance against beam breaks in size on size taps. Molded in recessed bridge plate assures even gasket pressure throughout the range of the sleeve. Extra strength eliminates possible cracking of the sleeve or flange. Reduced weight speeds installation and reduces the load placed on the pipe. Extra width and heavier neck and body material provide extra reinforcement of the outlet and extra stability during the tapping process. All stainless construction provides extra corrosion resistance. The stainless steel flange, outlet and body join as one unit of similar metals for highest structural strength and corrosion resistance.

   
452 Heavy Stainless Sleeve
The IFT452 All Stainless Steel Tapping Sleeve incorporates the heavy duty design of the fabricated steel tapping sleeve with the corrosion resistance of all stainless steel. This heavy design utilizes a broad cross section, hydro-mechanical outlet gasket in lieu of the full body gasket. This outlet gasket provides a positive seal, which increases with an increase in line pressure. The IFT452 has been engineered for installations requiring higher working pressure, higher safety scrutiny, or longer service life than standard all stainless or cast iron sleeves, and is manufactured to provide the superior corrosion resistance in applications on mains which are not subject to beam breaks.
