MANIFOLD VALVE DESIGN IMPROVES ERGONOMICS AND RELIABILITY

Emerson Automation Solutions has introduced a new manifold product family for its Rosemount pressure transmitters. Manifolds equalise or shut off pressure at the transmitter, and also provide the critical mounting mechanisms required in many installations. The Rosemount R305 integral and R306 in-line manifolds have been designed to offer significant improvements on these basic functions.

The most important improvement for both is a new pressure-lock valve design, which simplifies high-pressure operation, increases safety and enhances reliability.

The R305 is designed for both differential and gauge pressure applications and mounts directly to any Rosemount coplanar transmitter for a complete solution. This halves the number of potential leak points with traditional bi-planar transmitter setups. Two-, three- and five-valve configurations are available.

The R306 is designed for in-line pressure transmitters for gauge and absolute pressure applications. When an R305 or R306 is selected with a transmitter, the components are fully assembled and high-pressure leak-tested at the factory. This allows the transmitter to be installed right out of the box, saving time and money.

“Pressure transmitter manifolds often don’t get much attention, but users understand how vital they are for effective operation,” says Scott Nelson, Vice-President and General Manager for Emerson’s Rosemount pressure products. “Emerson takes all these elements seriously and introduced this improved offering to make this critical operation easier and safer for technicians who work with these products every day.”
