Pneumatic manifold fittings are used together to create a junction within a pneumatic system. This junction allows you to supply air to different systems, for example when using more than one tool. The manifold will feature a main central body which connects to the pipes and valves within the system. There is also a range of components, such as caps and connectors, that help with assembling the manifold and connecting it to the rest of the system, such as hoses and tubing.
Why use Pneumatic Manifold Fittings?
Pneumatic manifolds are used to save space within a system as they require significantly less tubing. Manifolds are also used to reduce loss of pressure. They enable shorter paths for the gas to travel, and therefore less time for the system to lose pressure as the gas travels.
