measurement instrument accessories | manifold valves

The purpose of a manifold valve is to isolate or block the flow of fluid in the system so the process media may be isolated from pressure instrumentation. A block-and-bleed manifold is used to isolate or block the upstream process media from the instrumentation and allows the bleeding off or venting of the remaining fluid from the system on the downstream side of the manifold.
