With a manifold flanged connection system, valves, fittings, and other parts are assembled by mating the flanges together, sealing them with gaskets, and securing them with clamps. This approach delivers several important advantages over traditional threaded systems. These are:
- You get right to the source. Unlike threaded systems, you can isolate the area you need to inspect, the part you need to replace, or the section you want to redesign and quickly remove the part(s) of interest. This process involves unscrewing the clamp bolts with a cordless drill (also a nut driver or even flathead screwdriver will work) and removing the part(s).
- You get back in the field immediately. Since you’re not spending time unthreading the entire system, you’re saving valuable minutes, often hours. This means you are up and running and not sitting in the shop.
- We really mean immediately. Manifold flange fitting use gaskets to provide a secure sealed connection so thread imperfections don’t exist. This means no complicated application of pipe tape or use of pipe sealant which requires a full day to cure. You can immediately pressurize your system and get right back in the field.
- It’s leak-free by design. The gasket and clamp system ensures a tight connection versus the leak vulnerabilities of threaded parts. Design matters, and manifold flange connections are designed to prevent leaks.
