Our Manifold Assemblies are supplied in fully assembled form for easy installation, allowing any compartment to be pumped or metered for bulk or hose reel delivery in a clean, safe and simple manner.
Each assembly comprises, for each compartment; our API adaptors and pneumatic manifold valves, a lightweight manifold, fabricated from extruded aluminum, and a guard bar that is interlocked to the vehicle brake system.
Product return system for safe and clean return of product to an appropriate compartment can be included as an optional extra. This feature is used when a multi-compartment tanker, carrying different products, is changing the type of product being delivered through a hose reel and the hose and manifold need clearing to avoid contamination.
Benefits of manifold systems:
Improves driver productivity
Eliminates the use of dry-break connectors and heavy jumper hoses
Reduces cross-over errors
Lower weight and envelope size compared to other piping systems
Product Return facility for 100% product retention
