Ductile Saddle – DR 1B/DR 2B and DR 1S/DR 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.

  • Rilsan Nylon 11 fluidized bed applied, 10-12 mil thick coating is standard — superior corrosion resistance, non-conductive, and unique capability to flex with saddle as it is tightened to conform to pipe OD
  • Alloy straps are standard. Optional 304L stainless steel straps are available. Strap threads are rolled, for added strength and quick installation by allowing nuts to spin on easily
  • Washers are provided under each nut to protect the coating. Stainless steel washers and fluorocarbon-coated nuts are used with optional stainless steel strap
  • Thick tapping boss is precision-machined for pressure-tight connections that resist pullout or breakage
  • Available for pipe sizes from 2″ through 12″ and 16″ through 24″ 
  • Maximum working pressures to 250 PSI for single strap styles and 500 PSI for double strap style
