Full Encirclement Saddle

Full-Encirclement Reinforcing Saddles are used to provide reinforcement for branch outlets when the code dictates further strength may be required. Although full-encirclement reinforcing saddles are designed to fully encircle the run pipe, saddles are not designed to be pressure retaining. All full encirclement saddles come with a vent hole to expel welding gases. Every full-encirclement reinforcing saddle is shipped with proper mill test documentation. We offer five types of encirclement weld saddles to suit your customer needs. May be offered with side bars or beveled sides. If beveled sides are specified, a backing groove and backing strips are provided.

All Steel Forgings saddles are made from top-quality steel that meets all standard legal specifications for measures like strength and corrosion resistance.
