CEDEC Under Pressure Branch Saddle
Saddles with an exclusive connection system for installing PE service branching under pressure, on ductile iron and asbestos cement pipes for water pressure up to 16 Bar. These are also used with excellent results on polyethylene and PVC-O pipe networks. Protection of the pipe: a fundamental advantage of Torre saddles is that they do not damage the pipe if excessive torque is applied. The special thickness of the gasket and the design of the straps absorb any excesses during assembly. Especially important in installations on asbestos cement pipes.

Torre saddles are equipped with EPDM joints certified for use with drinking water under WRAS: “Water Regulations Advisory Scheme” and under ACS: “Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire”
Cedec branch tees are electrically insulated preventing galvanic corrosion, consequent to its materials composition. Straps incorporate weld free manufacturing techniques to avoid inter-granular corrosion.
Spatula Shut Off
To carry out the under pressure connection operation, water flow is interrupted by insertion of a stainless steel spatula supplied with each Cedec Drilling Equipment.
Exclusive Connection System
Cedec tee system is an exclusive design that enables PE service connection pipe to be directly joined to the saddle, being fastened by means of a floating clamp, that provides highest anchoring strength with minimum assembly effort.
Compact design of Torre® drilling tool and strap anchoring system, both enable to install Cedec branch tees in restricted access spaces in any vertical, horizontal or inclined position.
Capping off service connections
By loosening the nut and inserting the spatula, repair work can be carried out on the service connection network or tapping can be capped off by inserting a PE plug.
Saddles and straps alike are supplied in labelled boxes to make handling, storage and identification easier. Each box comes with a brochure including detailed assembly instructions along with an information sheet detailing the range of applications and the size of drilling cutter that should be used.
