The difficulty in making 90° horizontal or vertical connecting butt often means the need to put a long time and effort with the most commonly used welding equipments. It is here that a simple addition in the form butt weld saddle can help a lot of welders in many ways.
Understanding the butt weld saddle
In plain words a butt weld saddle is a saddle shaped metal joint that can be used to butt weld two pipes at around 90° angles. Usually, for joining two pipes in the 90° angle, a welder needs to manually cut multiple pipes at the right parabolic shape with the right tools in order to get the perfect joint or make multiple pipe cuts and weld it with T-joints. But with the use of the right dimensions, such joints can be made easily without the use of any kind of specialized equipments.
Saving effort and time
Unless a welder is highly experienced and has the most advanced welding and cutting equipment, making a 90° weld on a pipe could prove to be extremely time consuming and could also entail a lot of effort. However, with the use of this saddle, such welding can be done in a short duration and without putting much effort, if the right dimension is used.
