Manifold Valves Make Maintenance and Repair Easier
As challenges are faced in the system’s layout and design, one aspect that is often overlooked is the system’s maintenance and repair. Having to change a valve can be difficult, especially if you have to remove the fittings, tubing, wiring harness, and especially if the valve is buried in your system. Using a manifold mounted valve can make the process much easier, quicker, and more serviceable. When there are multiple valves in the system, you should consider accessibility for the maintenance and replacement of the valves.
Manifold Valves Save Time
Manifolding valves is a good option, especially when you have multiple valves in your system. Mounting the valves directly to a manifold allows for simple maintenance by removing just two screws and disconnecting the valve, as opposed to disassembling fittings, tubing, and the wiring harness. Manifold valves should conveniently be located in the service panel on an exterior face of your device.
Manifold Valves Reduce Leak Points
Other advantages of manifold mounted valves vs. individually ported valves are that there are less leak points, there is less internal volume, and since there is no tubing or fittings connecting the ported valves the system is much cleaner.
