Manifolds Value are a combination of several valves in one body with multiple connections. This piece of equipment assists pressure instruments directly and indirectly in measuring and equalizing pressures, differential pressures, static, gauge, and variable in process instrumentation lines by bleeding, blocking, and calibrating.
Manifolds offer multiple functions all within one product and are available in many different styles for several applications.
There are two Manifolds Value mounting types that are important for your consideration. The two types are the remote mounting style and direct mounting style. As the name suggests, the direct mount style is where the manifold mounts directly onto pressure instruments. Direct mount valves typically use a combination of flange and threaded connections. Alternatively, remote mounting manifolds allow for installation away from the instruments using threaded connections exclusively.
HP Valves has 2-way, 3-way, and 5-way manifold configurations available with color-coded functions and pressure ratings up to 6,000 PSI. The color-coding functions are labeled as follows: red for drain, vent, and test, blue for isolate/block, and green for the equalizer valves.
