Pneumatic manifold fittings are essential components that help distribute compressed air or gasses efficiently and effectively. They are used together to create a junction within a pneumatic system which allows you to supply air to different systems and connect multiple pneumatic components such as cylinders, valves, actuators, sensors, and tools to a single supply source.Pneumatic manifold fittings play a crucial role in managing the flow of compressed air and gasses through the system, enabling smooth operation and control of your pneumatic devices.
Why use Pneumatic Manifold Fittings?Pneumatic manifolds are used to save space within a system as they use require significantly less tubing. Manifolds are also used to reduce the loss of pressure. They enable shorter paths for the air or gas to travel, and therefore less time for the system to lose pressure.Things to consider when choosing a Pneumatic Manifold FittingNumber of inlets and outletsInlet and outlet typeMaterialOperating temperaturePressure range
Key Features of Manifold FittingsMultiple PortsManifold fittings come with multiple ports, allowing several pneumatic components to be connected simultaneously. Common configurations include 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, and even more complex designs, depending on the specific application's requirements.Compact DesignThese fittings are designed to be compact and space-saving, making them ideal for installations in confined spaces or applications with limited room for pneumatic connections.VersatilityPneumatic manifold fittings come in a variety of materials, such as aluminium, stainless steel, and plastic, making them suitable for a wide range of industries and environments, from industrial automation and manufacturing to pneumatic tools and automotive applications.
Key Benefits of Manifold FittingsSimplified SystemsBy consolidating multiple connections into a single fitting, manifold fittings simplify the overall pneumatic system design, reducing the number of fittings, tubing, and potential leak pointsEasy to maintainBy centralizing connections through manifold fittings maintenance tasks are simplified. It makes it easier to troubleshoot, replace or reconfigure pneumatic components.Leak ReductionWith fewer connections, the potential for leaks is significantly reduced, improving the overall reliability and safety of the pneumatic system
