What is 2 way manifold valve?
2 Way Manifold Valve 2-way valve manifold is used for pressure transmitter. The typical 2-way valve manifold consists of 1 block valve and 1 drain or test valve. Then connect the drain valve connection to the pressure generator to give some test pressure.
Why do choke manifolds have two chokes?
In oil and gas production a choke manifold is used to lower the pressure from the well head. It consist of a set of high pressure valves and at least two chokes. The redundancy is needed so that if one choke has to be taken out of service, the flow can be directed through another one.
What is API 16C?
API SPEC 16C. January 29, 1993. Specification for Choke and Kill Systems. PURPOSE. This specification was formulated to provide for safe and functionally interchangeable surface and subsea choke and kill systems equipment utilized for drilling oil and gas wells.
What is choke line kill line?
Choke-and-Kill Line External conduit arranged laterally along the riser pipe and used for circulation of fluids into and out of the wellbore to control well pressure.
How do you isolate a 5 valve manifold?
5 Valve Manifold
- Check all valves HP,LP, the bleed valve and the equalizing valves are closed.
- Open the equalizing valves.
- Open the High Pressure block valve slowly, check for leakage from both the high pressure and low-pressure side of the transmitter.
- Close the equalizing valves.
What is a 3 way manifold?
by Editorial Staff. A three-valve manifold is a device that is used to ensure that the capsule will not be over-ranged. It also allows isolation of the transmitter from the process loop. It consists of two block valves – high pressure and low pressure block valve – and an equalizing valve.
What is the difference between 2-valve and 3-valv manifolds?
The 2-valve manifolds are designed for static pressure and liquid level applications; the 3- and 5-valve manifolds are designed for differential pressure applications. These manifolds are available in traditional and compact body designs.
What sizes do Swagelok manifolds come in?
These manifolds are available in traditional and compact body designs. Manifold connections include female Swagelok ® tube fittings, pipe ends (NPT and ISO 228/1), and flanges (MSS SP-99) in 1/2 and 3/4 in. and 12 mm sizes.
What are the different types of PEX manifolds?

What type of copper is used in copper pipe manifolds?
ProPEX Copper Manifolds feature a 1″ copper supply constructed of type “L” copper. These copper manifolds are available with or without stop valves. ProPEX stop valves allow the ability to isolate individual loops without shutting down the entire system.
