Manifolds provide a convenient means for locating multiple valves in a centralized location. Benefits include lower cost, more compact design, less leakage, and simpler maintenance.
Manifolds come in two basic types. One is a single-piece design which supports all necessary valving and contains all the passages for an entire system. The other is the modular-block design. Each modular block usually supports only one valve and contains internal passages for that valves functions as well as flow-through provisions. It normally is connected to a series of similar modular blocks to make up a complete system. Both types have their advantages. Which is best suited for your system will depend on a variety of actors, such as application specific function, cost, space, and system longevity.
