Maintaining a steam boiler is essential for ensuring its optimal performance and longevity. At Oswald Supply, we understand the importance of having the right products to keep your boiler running smoothly. In this blog, we'll explore the key components needed to maintain your steam boiler and how they contribute to its overall health.



  • Gauge Glass Gaskets:

One of the most critical aspects of boiler maintenance is ensuring accurate water levels. Gauge glass gaskets play a vital role in this process by providing a tight seal between the gauge glass and the boiler. This prevents steam or water leaks that could compromise the accuracy of the water level readings. Our selection of gauge glass gaskets ensures a secure seal, helping you maintain precise water levels in your boiler.



  • Gauge Glass Washers: 

In addition to gaskets, gauge glass washers are essential for maintaining the integrity of the gauge glass assembly. These washers create a tight seal between the glass and the surrounding components, preventing leaks and ensuring accurate readings. By replacing worn or damaged washers regularly, you can prevent costly leaks and maintain optimal water level control in your boiler.



  • Gauge Glass Nuts:

Gauge glass nuts are used to secure the gauge glass assembly to the boiler. These nuts play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the assembly and preventing leaks. Our selection of gauge glass nuts is designed to provide a secure and reliable connection, ensuring that your gauge glass remains firmly in place.



  • Gauge Glass Valves:

Gauge glass valves are used to control the flow of water or steam in the gauge glass assembly. These valves allow operators to isolate the gauge glass for maintenance or repair without shutting down the entire boiler system. Our range of gauge glass valves includes high-quality options that provide precise control and reliable performance, helping you maintain optimal water level control in your boiler.



  • Boiler Brushes:

Regular cleaning is essential for preventing scale buildup and maintaining efficient heat transfer in your boiler. Our selection of boiler brushes is designed to remove deposits and debris from the boiler tubes, ensuring maximum heat transfer and efficiency. Whether you need brushes for cleaning fire tubes, water tubes, or gauge glass assemblies, we have the right tools for the job.



  • Cast Iron Water Column:

Designed for low-pressure applications (<15 PSI), the cast iron water column is a crucial component for steam boilers. With dimensions of 16” x 4” x 3-1/4” and tappings including (2) 1-1/4” and (5) 1/2”, this water column will help to ensure proper water level control, the cast iron water column helps prevent damage to the boiler and maintains optimal performance. Its durable construction and reliable functionality make it an essential part of any steam boiler maintenance regimen.


  • Water Gauge Set:

A water gauge set is an essential component for monitoring water levels in steam boilers. The set typically includes fittings, valves, and gauge glasses, providing a comprehensive solution for accurate water level measurement. By maintaining proper water levels, steam boilers can operate efficiently and safely, minimizing the risk of damage or downtime.




With the right products and regular maintenance, you can keep your steam boiler in top shape for years to come. At Oswald Supply, we offer a comprehensive selection of gauge glass gaskets, washers, nuts, valves, and brushes to help you maintain optimal performance and efficiency.
