Saddle Fuse 4" Branch Saddles & Tapping Tees Onto All Main Sizes
The standard Sidewinder fusion machines saddle fuse branches, tapping tees and service fittings onto mains from 1 ¼" to 4" IPS. Two configurations are available: jaw clamping and chain clamping. For main sizes larger than 4" IPS, a chain extension kit can be added to the chain clamping models. Both Sidewinders are DataLogger® compatible for documenting the fusion process.

Choose the gauge option to best suit the fittings you plan to fuse. Lower pressure gauges offer smaller increments for a more precise pressure reading. Your fitting manufacturer can recommend the proper fusion pressures.
August 2018 amendments by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) for the provision of "clear and reasonable" Proposition 65 warnings in Title 27, California Code of Regulations, Section 25600, et seq ("Warning") placed responsibility for providing warnings on product manufacturers, producers, packagers, importers, suppliers, and distributors.
While nothing has changed with McElroy's products, the requirements for warnings have evolved. For specific chemical information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
