These saddles fit steel, cast iron and ductile iron pipe in diameters from 2" to 16" and can be ordered with boss tapping from 1/2" to 2" IP sizes. The saddle portion is ductile iron. The straps are steel and are flattened to increase the area in contact with the pipe de - creasing the possibility of pipe damage. The saddle is nylon coated and the steel straps are plated to resist corrosion. Extra wide 304L stainless steel straps are optional. A large diameter nitrile O-ring seals the outlet boss and is cemented in place. When properly installed, the double strap saddles have a maximum working pressure of 250 psig and the single strap 125 psig.
