Saddle Outlet Fusion
In Socket Fusion, the outside diameter of the pipe and the inside diameter of the fitting is heated and joined
together. With Saddle Outlet Fusion, the fusion welds are in the wall of the pipe as well as on the curved
outside diameter of both the pipe and fitting. This makes it ideal for installing branch lines off the main,
manifolds, insertion of the gauges, etc. These connections can even be made after the main lines have been i
nstalled. The use of saddle outlet connections when building manifolds saves fabrication time and money.
They also have lower pressure losses than standard reducing tees.
PESTAN produces Saddle Outlet Fusion fittings. PESTAN Fittings are made from PP-RCT resin.
This is the same high performance material used in PESTAN Mechanical Pipe.
In addition to the outstanding performance characteristics of the resin, the fittings are manufactured with a wall
thickness and pressure rating that exceeds the ratings on the pipe. The additional thickness of the fitting minimizes
heat transfer and the need for insulation of the fittings may be reduced or eliminated in certain applications.
CT Piping Solutions offers fusion training to installers via local representatives or through our affiliates. Trained
and registered installers are critical for a successful piping system and are required for that system to be covered
under the PESTAN warranty.
