Boiler Orifice Union

The Boiler Orifice Union is a specially milled union for 1/2" and 3/4" NPT pipes. ChemWorld also provides 1" NPT unions orifice assemblies. They orifice unions are designed to work with boiler orifice plates. The purpose of a boiler orifice plate is to reduce the flow rate and to eliminate steam flashing over the controller conductivity probe. Without this steam flow restriction, false reading may be sent to your boiler blowdown controller, resulting in the steam boiler blowdown valve to power on/off repeatedly. Boiler globe valves may also be used in place of orifice plates.

ChemWorld also provides timed sample kits and continuous sample kits for sampling steam boiler water.

Improper control of your boiler blowdown controller will also increase blowdown rates, increased energy costs, and increase steam boiler chemicals use.
