A saddle clamp is a device that allows for the installation of irrigation water HDPE pipes quickly and securely. These devices function whether the irrigation water supply is under high or low pressure. An irrigation water pipe must be fitted with a saddle clamp and then secured in place. The saddle clamp is attached to the pipe through a pre-drilled hole. The saddle clamps appendix hole size determines the size of the drilled hole.
A pipe union is a type of fitting used to connect two pipes without causing any harm to the pipes. Pipe unions are capable of readily disjoining two pipes. They are widely used in the pipe fitting industry. The majority of pipe unions are made up of two pipes joined together by a third component. To provide a secure connection, all three are threaded.
A foot valve is a sort of check valve that is often located at the bottom of a pipeline or at a pump (hence the name). Foot valves function similarly to ball check valves, but they have an open end with a shield or screen covering it to prevent debris from entering the line.
Foot valves keep the suction line between the tank and the pump set primed by preventing oil from returning to the main tank. Foot valves offer a better level of safety than check valves, which may be situated closer to the pump set.
