As part of our range of spares and accessories, we offer various orifice fittings (unions, brass plates, other fittings) and many customers take advantage of these when carrying out installations and maintenance.
Machined orifice plates have proven difficult for customers to source (so, of course we can help, this is what we’re here for). They are often in brass, but we can also do then in stainless steel and other alloys for special applications.
Perhaps COVID-related, perhaps just because of poor customer service by our ex-supplier, but we have struggled badly over the last six months to securely obtain flat-faced unions within which to machine our orifice plates. Therefore we have taken the decision to move forwards, once existing stocks are depleted, with stainless steel orifice unions.
Our new style of orifice unions are finely cast and well-machined 316 stainless steel, complete with PTFE seal and BSP threads (1/2″ to 2″ generally from stock, but 1/8″ to 4″ available).
The even better news is that, for the stainless unions, we will be able to keep the pricing the same as the less attractive galvanised malleable iron.
