Parker Hannifin, a motion and control technologies expert, has extended its range of distribution manifolds to meet customer requirements for lower pressure applications.
Dubbed the Air Header Distribution Manifold, the new, low pressure version is approved to operate at pressures up to 275 pounds per square inch (psi) and counterparts Parker’s Hi Pro range which can be used in applications up to a maximum cold working pressure of 6,000 psi.

Parker’s low pressure distribution manifolds are designed to distribute air from compressors to actuators on pneumatic instruments, such as steam flow meters, pressure controllers and valve positioners.
The new devices are designed for use with air only and are supplied with a number of lockable ball valves on opposite sides. The manifolds have been designed for use in the oil and gas and petrochemical industries.
The Air Header Distribution Manifolds are fabricated by coded welders and then they are non-destructive tested to guarantee full penetration welds, reducing the number of potential leak paths.
Parker’s Product Manager Jim Breeze said this product line expansion was due to customer demand. “They perfectly complement our range of high pressure distribution manifolds, offering and enhanced choice to customers,” he emphasised.
