Instrumentation Manifolds

PANAM Instrumentation Valve Manifolds offer a safe and economic method of installing instrumentation to control and measure the pressure and flow of liquids or gaseous media. They are ruggedly manufactured, and precision machined to the exact dimensional tolerance to ensure ease of installation and application.

Two-valve Manifolds

PANAM Two Valve Manifolds are designed for connecting system impulse lines and transmitters. The two-valve configuration allows for easy isolation, calibration, and block & bleed for gauges, pressure switches, and static pressure transmitters. They are ruggedly manufactured, and precision machined to the exact dimensional tolerance to ensure perfect installation and application. These two valve manifolds combine the functions of a tee, a calibration valve, an isolation valve and all tubing and fittings into a single compact unit thus reducing the number of fittings and space required for installation. They are available in both A105 Carbon Steel and 316 Stainless Steel (Monel, Inconel and Alloy available upon request) and are rated for pressures as high as 6000 psi.
