Press Release Summary:
Featuring bonnet lock pins to prevent accidental loosening, 2-, 3-, and 5-way manifold valves have pressure rating up to 6,000 psi at 200Â°F. R-type manifolds provide differential pressure of flow recorder to impulse tubing, while D-, T-, and H-type manifolds bolt directly to differential pressure instruments to eliminate need for piping, valves, and fittings. Incorporating full back-sealed bonnets that prevent accidental stem removal and blowout, each valve has 4.0 mm orifice.

New Manifold Valves Offer Convenient Method of Blocking, Bleeding and Calibrating Pressure Instruments
ERIE, PA - Innovative Pressure Technologies (IPT) introduces 2-, 3- and 5-Way Manifold Valves. These valves combine the function of a tee, calibration valve, isolation valve and all tubings and fittings into a single valve configuration, and are designed to connect a system impulse line and transmitter. R-Type manifolds provide differential pressure of flow recorder to impulse tubing. D-Type, T-Type and H-Type manifolds bolt directly to differential pressure instruments to eliminate the need for piping, valves and fittings.
Metal seated units feature a maximum pressure rating up to 6,000 PSI at 200°F (414 bar at 93°C). The pressure rating at maximum temperature for PTFE units is 4,130 PSI at 450°F (284 bar at 232°C), and for Grafoil units is 1,500 PSI at 1000°F (103 bar at 538°C). Each has a 0.156 in. (4.0 mm) orifice.
Each manifold valve features bonnet lock pins to prevent accidental loosening, and adjustable packing reduces the possibility of bonnet/body leaks. All stem packing is located below the stem threads to prevent galling, corrosion and contamination. Full back-sealed bonnets prevent accidental stem removal and blowout. Metal seat units feature a free swiveling ball end stem as standard to ensure bubble-tight valve closure without seat galling.
The special hardened ball seat is ideal for both gas and liquid service. Typical applications include:
o General plant service
o Pressure instrumentation devices
o Pressure equalization
o Block and bleed
