Novel manifold sets new standard for high-pressure instrumentation
Parker Instrumentation has launched a 3/8 inch (10 mm) bore double block and bleed manifold that will operate at up to 15,000 PSI (1,034 bar) cold working pressure. At these elevated pressures, instrumentation engineers today typically build systems from discrete valve and tube fitting components. Compared with these, the innovative new Hi-Pro 15KSI DBB manifold saves a great deal of space and weight, and greatly enhances integrity by eliminating numerous potential leak paths.
In addition, the Hi-Pro manifold is supplied as standard with threadless connections for tubing. At 15,000 PSI pressures, many instrumentation engineers currently employ 'cone and thread' style fittings for tubing connections. These components are time consuming to install and require an additional gland component if installed in environments subject to vibration.
Parker Instrumentation's manifold is supplied as standard with 15,000 PSI-rated MPI tubing ends that operate using the industry-standard compression sealing technique. These assemble in seconds by simply tightening a nut, and are inherently vibration resistant. The end connections are secured by means of Parker's proprietary Tru-Loc mechanism, to guard against any connector movement when disconnecting connectors or instrument.
