Bronze Saddle – BR 1B/BR 2B and BR 1S/BR 2S

HYMAX service saddles, available in bronze and ductile iron, are used for making convenient, dependable service line connections on water mains. Different styles are available for use on virtually every type of pipe. All utilize an O-ring contained in a dimensionally controlled groove to eliminate creep and possible seal blowout. 

HYMAX ductile iron or bronze saddles feature strap configurations and saddle body shapes that allow nearly 360° pipe contact for a strong grip that resists movement. Large wrench surfaces on the saddle’s boss support tightening loads during corporation valve installation. Availability includes AWWA taper threads (CC) or AWWA IP threads in 3/4” through 2” tapping sizes.

  • Heavy bronze body provides high strength at critical stress points and corrosion resistance 
  • Standard bronze straps are flattened to provide greater gripping surface. Optional 304L stainless steel straps are available. Strap threads are rolled for strength and quick installation by allowing nuts to spin on easily 
  • Stainless steel washers and fluorocarbon-coated stainless steel nuts are used with optional stainless steel strap 
  • Thick tapping boss is precision-machined for pressure-tight connections that resist pull-out or breakage
  • Available for pipe sizes from 4” through 12” for single strap styles and 4” through 24” for double strap styles
  • Maximum working pressure is 200 PSI for both styles
