Asahi/America Introduces the Tapping Saddle for Air-Pro(TM) Compressed Air Piping System
Asahi/America, Inc., introduces the new tapping saddle for their Air-Pro(TM) Compressed Air Piping Systems. Designed specifically for the Air-Pro system, the new tapping saddle allows for the installation of the system with no drops! The drops are installed after the system has been hung by simply using the tapping saddle welding it in place with electro-fusion process. The saddle can be installed at any location, under any pressure, reducing the number of required welds in half vs traditional drop methods.
The Air-Pro tapping saddle is available in 11 sizes from 2x1 to 6x2 and is rated at 150psi.
Air-Pro Compressed Air piping system is available in sizes ½" to 12" with socket, butt and electro-fusion fittings in a variety of styles including tees, reducing tees, 90s, 45s and more. Air-Pro systems are safe and reliable, offering fast, low-cost installations.
The Air-Pro System is engineered for continuous operating pressures from 150 to 230 psi. Air-Pro Systems use specially-engineered Solvay Eltex TUB 124 blue high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin, which is extremely ductile, light-weight and corrosion-free. Additionally, Air-Pro Systems are chemically resistant to compressor synthetic oils and mineral oils that traditionally attack glued systems. Air-Pro is color-coded blue up to 4", and black from 6" - 12" for easy identification of compressed air lines.
