PE Branch Connections / Saddles
Using our Branch Saddle system we are able to make live branch connections for new supplies and offtakes, for water or gas. Where the main remains operational and under pressure, a branch saddle offers the ideal solution to tap into the main, therefore avoiding the need for squeeze offs or flowstopping.
Available for use on up to 500mm diameter PE pipe our branch saddles are available with electrofusion jointing solutions.
The method allows significant time and cost savings as there is no need to disrupt supplies.
- Our Under Pressure T and Branch Saddle systems can be used under ‘live’ conditions saving time and cost
- Only a small amount of working space is required, therefore reducing costly excavations
