Barrel Unions
Barrel Unions

Barrel unions are utilised in quick dismantling joints, that can be installed into above ground HDPE pipe systems during initial installation, or cut into the piping later. These unions allow for fast disassembly and reassembly of pipe work sections that may need more access for servicing. Unions are available from sizes 20mm to 110mm with all unions made to SDR11 specifications and rated to PN10, which will cover most above-ground industrial piping systems. We also manufacture larger full pressure rated dismantling unions to order, up to SDR7.4 PN25 and 1200mm in diameter. For assistance with your project please consult with us further.
