ELYSEE metric tapping saddles

Connecta metric tapping saddles

ELYSEE Metric Tapping Saddles are designed to provide the ultimate solution for branch lines from main pipelines. Manufactured from premium grade plastic and fitted with a strong rubber seal to create a leak proof connection the ELYSEE Tapping Saddles are ideal for both agricultural and industrial applications. With anti-rotational ribs moulded in the base of the tapping saddle to prevent rotational or lateral movement the Tapping Saddle maintains a clear, full bore to allow maximum flow. This is in contrast to other tapping saddles with an insert to reduce rotational movement. Also, this allows the installer to drill the branch line hole after the tapping saddle is fitted, making the ELYSEE Tapping Saddle extremely Easy-to-fit. CONNECTING VALUE.

Benefits & Applications

  • Manufactured from robust, durable materials the ELYSEE Tapping Saddles are designed for extended life and reliability in agricultural and industrial applications.

  • Anti-rotational ribs moulded into the tapping saddle base prevent movement on the pipe creating a more reliable and leak-proof connection.

  • Connection entrance hole can be drilled after the tapping saddle has been installed creating an Easy-to-fit connection.

  • Excellent UV and chemical resistance for both agricultural and industrial installations.

  • Frequently used for lateral line derivation from mainline pipes, for high pressure conveyance of water, irrigation, gaseous fuels, compressed air, certain chemical solutions, slurries, and effluent.

Technical Information

Sizing - How do you determine whether your pipe is Medium Density? What size tapping saddle should be used on what size pipe?

ELYSEE Metric Tapping Saddles are designed to suit metric Medium Density polyethylene pipe. This means that the size of the pipe is given by the outside diameter and will therefore correspond to the appropriate size fitting.

Installation Instructions

STEP 1: Initial Tapping Saddle Assembly

For an easy installation we recommend you insert the bolts into the bottom half of the tapping saddle and then place the rubber O’ring into its moulded position in the top half of the tapping saddle before installing onto the pipe work.

STEP 2: Installing the ELYSEE Metric Tapping Saddle

Firstly clip the bottom half of the tapping saddle onto the pipe with the bolts facing you. Secondly, take the top half of the tapping saddle and place the moulded bolt holes over the bolts facing you. Gently push the top half over the bolts until the bolts appear through the moulded bolt holes and you tapping saddle fits tightly onto the pipe. Next take the nuts provided with your tapping saddle and screw them onto the bolts facing you. Screw these nuts until they are just touching the tapping saddle. You can then adjust the positioning of the tapping saddle to exactly where you need. At this point there will be no compression and the anti-rotational ribs will not have bitten into the pipe meaning you can still adjust the position of the tapping saddle. Once you happy with the position then tighten the nuts with a socket or crescent. In this stage the O’ring will be compressed and the anti-rotation ribs will lock into the pipe.

YOU NOW HAVE A LEAK PROOF, RELIABLE PIPE CONNECTION...CONNECTING VALUE
