Functions of a 5 Way Manifold Valve

When talking about a 5 way manifold valve, you should have proper knowledge regarding its meaning and functioning. Techtube ensures that before purchasing its product, its customer should be fully acknowledged by the things ordered. So, let's begin. 


What is a 5 way manifold valve? 

The five-valve manifold has a built-in bleed valve that allows the technician to evacuate stored pressure through a tube to a remote site rather than venting directly at the transmitter. When both block valves are open, the equalizing valve is never allowed to open. 


This will allow process fluid to flow from the high-pressure side of the process to the low-pressure side of the process through the equalizing valve(s). Both the equalizing and bleed valves are closed during normal operation, whereas both the block valves are allowed to open.


Both the equalizing and bleed valves are opened during calibration 148. For gauge pressure applications, pressure transmitter 67 valve manifolds are also available in single block-and-bleed variants. Only the "high" pressure port of the transmitter is connected to the impulse line, with the "low" pressure port vented to the atmosphere.


Functions of a 5 way manifold valve

A five-way manifold valve combines an isolation valve and a vent valve into a single compact item. NPT (National Pipe Taper), BSPT (British Standard Pipe Taper), and BSPP (British Standard Parallel Pipe) connectors come in various diameters and thread types. In this modest arrangement, intimacy, device calibration or testing, and instrument venting are all included. 


The five-way manifold valve has a variety of uses, including pressure gauges, transmitters, and switches. The pressure instruments are connected to the manifold valve using 1/2-inch FNPT connectors.


As a manifold manufacturer and supplier, we have the following key characteristics:

  • T-bar to take a breather from the action
  • The lids are the same.
  • the gland adjuster bolt's nut
  • The bubble-tight shut-off on the spindle top ensures that the operator achieves a leak-free result while maintaining downstream safety.
  • Valve bonnet with a replaceable bonnet locking washer.
  • Filler for the glands to provide full sealing with the least amount of air adjustment.
  • Bonnet/body washers ensure precise atmospheric leakage and enable on-site bonnet refit with 100% resealing certification.
  • Anti-blowout spindle for short torque operation with high-quality micro reflector stem end for optimistic gland sealing.
  • For uniform loading reduction, pressure-tight sealing, and cold flow route restriction, use an anti-rotational point brush.
  • Use a screwdriver to change the gland grate refund.
