# How many degrees is a saddle bend?

## How many degrees is a saddle bend?

The saddle bend is similar to an offset bend, but in this case the same plane is resumed. It is used most often when another pipe is encountered. Most common is a 45° center bend and two 22-1/2° outer bends, but you can use a 60° center bend and two 30° bends.

### How do you calculate a saddle bend?

The steps to making a three bend saddle are:

1. Measure the height of the object to be saddled.
2. Measure the distance from the end of the conduit to be bent to the center of the object to saddle.
3. Place mark on conduit at distance to center of object.
4. Add 3/16″ to the distance for each inch of saddle required.

How do you find the center of bend on conduit?

The level or straight edge is then placed along the other side of the bend, similar to the placement for the first line. A second line is then drawn on the conduit along the edge of the level or straight edge. If the bend in the conduit is small, the two lines should cross. This point is the center of the bend.

When making a saddle bend where does your first mark need to be?

To recap: The first bend is made with the conduit mark at the customized “center of 22°” mark you made on the bender. Each of the other bends are made with the conduit mark at the normal arrow used for making a 90° bend with the toe of the bender pointed towards the center mark.

## What is a three point saddle bend in Conduit?

The three point saddle bend is a variant of the offset bend since it is an offset bend that returns to the original in-line run after clearing an obstacle. This bend is intended to bridge over obstacles such as existing conduit or plumbing running perpendicular to the intended conduit installation. 1.
