Description and benefits

The slimline flanged tapping saddles are used to create branches in pressure-free or new drinking water networks.

They are manufactured in two different sizes: DN80 and DN100, which can be installed on polyethylene, PVC, fibre cement and ductile iron pipes with a nominal diameter from 100 to 350mm.

The main advantage of OPTIMQ slimline saddles is their neck-free design, which turns them into the flanged saddle with the smallest height on the market, sticking out only 30mm over the pipe. They are perfectly well suited for cases in which there is little space available in the trench, or when there are several couplings or accessories to be mounted on the saddle, reducing the mounting height on the scoring and the shaft height of the necessary drilling tool.

  • Saddle dimensions DN80 and DN100.
  • Compatible with pipes made of ductile cast, fibre cement, PE and PVC-O.
  • DN80-C slimline saddles can be installed on ductile iron pipes from 100 to 200mm, fibre cement pipes from 100 to 200-C, and PE and PVC-O pipes in sizes 160 and 180.
  • DN80-E slimline saddles can be installed on ductile iron pipes from 200 to 350mm, fibre cement pipes from 200-E to 350-D, and PE and PVC-O pipes in sizes 250, 280, 315 and 355.
  • DN100-D slimline saddles can be installed on ductile iron pipes from 150 to 200mm, fibre cement pipes from 150-C to 200-C, and PE and PVC-O pipes in sizes 200 and 225.
  • DN100-E slimline saddles can be installed on ductile iron pipes from 200 to 350mm, fibre cement pipes from 200-E to 350-D, and PE and PVC-O pipes in sizes 250, 280, 315 and 355.
  • Nominal pressure: PN16
  • Permissible working pressure: 16bars
  • Manufactured according to the European standard EN 545.
  • Ductile cast saddle body, blue epoxy-coating certified for drinking water. Epoxy-coating thickness between 250 and 500 microns.
  • EPDM rubber joint according to EN 681-1 standard for water pipelines.
  • The saddle is supplied without screws and nuts, since the installer will have to use the correct ones according to the length and the material.
  • The saddle is provided with a bag of pliers made of acetal resin to fix the screws and make the installation of the branch easier. Once the installation process is finished there is no need to take off these pliers.
  • Straps made of AISI 305 stainless steel and insulating EPDM rubber profile in blue.
  • The studs of the steel traps are made of A2 stainless steel and the nuts are made of A4 stainless steel.
