The immediate function of a manifold in a water supply system is to distribute a single water flow into several equal or different pressures. On the two opposite sides of the unit there is a 3/4" threaded connection (female thread on one side and male thread on the other side) for connection to the mains and connection of the "combs" to each other. The free end of the manifold is fitted with a plug or an additional plumbing device such as a diaphragm shock absorber or manifold elbow/tee to install an air vent, thermometer, remote thermostat gauge or drain faucet.
There are valves (headwork) on the outlets that allow smooth opening and closing of the water flow on each individual branch. Smooth adjustment of water opening and closing avoids water hammer in the system. The valves are adjusted by means of plastic knobs "winglets". There are two metal plates on the top of each wing, which can be changed to indicate what kind of water the valve is responsible for (cold or hot) and for which specific device.
Outlets in diameter 1/2" are provided with seats for 1/2" Eurocone-type connectors for connection of metal plastic or PEX pipes in diameter 16 mm with wall thickness 2.0 mm.
If it is necessary to connect a plumbing fixture to this manifold using a threaded connection and/or a flexible inlet, we recommend installing a "Eurocone-Flat" adapter, which protects the gasket from being cut by the edges of the thread.
When installing the manifold, it is necessary to securely fasten it using special manifold fasteners and/or pipe clamps with a rubber seal of the appropriate diameter. A poorly secured switchgear assembly can lead to leaking connections and damage to the pipework.
The hot stamping process manufactures this manifold.
The manifold is made of high quality brass CW617N and has a nickel coating of at least 7 microns, making it suitable for use in drinking water systems due to the reduced lead content in the alloy, as well as in other environments that are not aggressive to the materials manufacturer.
The use of a manifold in water supply systems eliminates unnecessary control and shut-off valves. The manifold ensures that the water system has the same pressure for the consumers.
The manufacturer of this manifold is MasterProf.
