Product Spotlight – Sidewinder®

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 to record and analyze fusion joint data.
