A manifold is defined as a piping
system fitted with several apertures for multiple connections used
to transport gas from one location to another. A complete manifold
system consists of cylinders, pigtails, end caps, extensions,
starter blocks and the manifold control system.
In medical, industrial and
laboratory environments there are two common situations where it
becomes inconvenient to change over to a fresh gas supply. The
first situation is one in which large volumes of gas are being
used in relatively short periods of time thereby requiring the
constant change over to a fresh gas supply. An equally frustrating
situation arises when the same gas is being used in multiple
locations (i.e. a large number of cylinders spread throughout
various rooms). In either case, the requirement to frequently
change cylinders becomes a major inconvenience. Gas Distribution
systems are specifically designed to provide an economical method
of gas system control by cutting down on the time required to
replace the cylinders. This is accomplished by connecting several
conveniently located cylinders or gas sources to a single manifold
There are two basic types of Gas
Distribution systems, manual and
traps are designed to remove water, oil, and organics from gases
employed in, but not limited to, gas chromatography. Refillable
moisture traps are constructed from polycarbonate tubing.
Lightweight, chemically resistant and of superior strength when
compared to traps manufactured from acrylic.
These traps actually remove the oxygen
rather than converting it to another form of contamination
Hydrocarbon Traps offer flexibility:
refill trap and remove extremely low levels of hydrocarbons.
Baldota sampling cylinders are designed and manufactured
to provide long performance life and maximum safety to the
user for the safe containment and transportation of samples of
gases and liquids.
The cylinders are available in different capacities and
cylinders ends come in 1/4" NPT-F and 1/2" NPT-F connections.
They are available in 316 and 316L stainless steel material on
request are available also Monel 400, carbon steel material,
