What it is made up from:

› See our levels of product page

Description and applications:   

Ideal for insulating  Ball valves, and the handle protrudes outside the insulation for quick and easy valve adjustment.  The Snake Bite is designed for the larger spots on a pipeline.  Eg.  Flanges, hammer union connections, Inline Ball valves, Check Valves, and / or cam lock fittings.  Basically, anywhere you need to have quick access without having to deal with the other insulation, you can use our Snake Bite

The Snake Bite  has straps permanently attached . These are fixed for ease of installment, so as to eliminate the need to use other components to fasten the insulation to the valve, or hammer unions.     . 

Installation instructions.  Lay the SnakeBite  down the length of the valve, fold it around the valve and attach using the straps and buckles.  Do not overtighten the straps, as the tighter they are installed, the less Insulation value you have at that point. 

Typical applications:

  • The SnakeBite is widely used to insulate ball valves, check valves, hammer unions.  The straps are installed, and are easily fastened into place using the galvanized spring loaded clips.  
  • Can be used independently or in conjunction  with the SideWinder™, or the Original Snake product
  • Compliments to heat tracing.  Temperature is good to 202®F, or 96®C.  This is an ideal application.
  • Ideal for applications   where you need quick and easy access, without disturbing any other insulation that is being used elsewhere.   We can make product to suit your required lengths
