What are saddle clamps?
Grekkon Limited’s saddle clamps allow for fast, quick, and tight irrigation water HDPE pipes installation. Screw the saddle clamp on an irrigation water pipe into place. Whether irrigation water supply is under high or low pressure, these devices work. A pre-drilled hole on the pipe allows for the attachment of the saddle clamp. The size of the drilled hole depends on the hole size of the saddle clamps appendix.
Our saddle clamps consist of the valve body with packing nuts and an open appendix attached on one end. They have a sealing washer that rests between the pipe and clamp to prevent irrigation water leakage. The other side of the irrigation water supply pipe has saddle clamp brackets. Tightened to the valve with two bolts, the pipe remains sandwiched between them.
How they work
How to install a saddle clamp in an irrigation system
- Attach saddle clamps to the irrigation water pipe
Without a cut on the irrigation pipe, their use is convenient. Without the need for couplings or fittings to install, it is easy to work with
- Pipe addition
Once the clamp is placed, a similarly sized pipe in diameter or a smaller one on the open appendix is attached. This newly attached pipe is perpendicular to the existing one, to form a ‘T’ shape
- Size of the clamp
We supply and install them according to the size of the irrigation pipes in use. Because they are easy to assemble and disassemble, the farmer in future moves them with the irrigation system when necessary. Each is named according to the diameter size of the main pipe entry point, and the perpendicular open appendix. For instance, a saddle clamp with a 2” sized main pipe entry point, and a 50mm open perpendicular appendix is referred to as a 2” x 50mm saddle clamp
