Press Release Summary:
Suited for deployment in systems that require gang mounting of solenoid valves, KIP manifold assemblies can integrate system components such as pressure switches, check valves, regulators, and gauges into one package. Maintenance or replacement of valves is accomplished by unplugging valve, and user does not need to disconnect pneumatic plumbing. Manufactured in materials such as brass, aluminum, and PVC, manifolds are available different port sizes.

Simplifying Pneumatic and Fluid Control Valve Installation with Norgren's KIP Range of Manifolds
Littleton, Colorado, USA - May 2004 - Norgren, the motion and fluid control specialist, delivers competitive advantage through its comprehensive range of KIP manifold assemblies. OEM's can achieve this advantage through cost savings due to reduced valve installation times, the minimization of system components and simplified repair and maintenance. Ideal for deployment in systems that require the gang mounting of solenoid valves the manifolds can integrate system components such as pressure switches, check valves, regulators and gauges into one package thus cutting down on the amount of pneumatic tubing and connections that are required this in turn reduces potential leak points within the system and increases machine reliability.
When it comes to the maintenance or the replacement of valves this can be done very easily and effectively by simply unplugging the valve. This means that the user doesn't have to disconnect pneumatic plumbing thus minimizing maintenance costs and reducing machine down time. Manufactured in a wide variety of materials such as brass, aluminium and PVC the manifolds are available for a number of different port sizes. Further information on the Norgren-KIP range of manifolds can be found at http://www.norgren.com/kip/.
