Ten Steps to a Leak-free Connection
Exclusive technical article
Innovative solutions for all standard connectivity and functional requirements from the process line to the instrument are available in Parker's range, as a result of an intensive innovation-driven development program.
A foundation of the range is the elimination of leak-prone taper thread connections, and with it any need for PTFE tape or anaerobic sealant - another common cause of problems in the field.
Parker's solutions in this area extends the scope of reliable compression tube fittings throughout the instrumentation chain, by integrating compression tubing ends onto valves and manifolds. Combined with accessories such as threadless piping interfaces, that convert a standard flange to a compression tubing connection, plant engineers have the means of eliminating NPT threads in any standard instrumentation application.
For standard double-block-and-bleed requirements, Parker offers manifolds in monoflange and flange-ended forms, providing 'one-piece' solutions that eliminate any need for system building using discrete valves (and all the additional connections and potential leak paths of that approach). These manifolds are now optionally available in new, ultra-low-emission, ISO 15848 compliant forms.
Parker's newest integrated manifold solution is the highly innovative close-coupled instrument mounting system (CCIMS). CCIMS provides a novel means of directly attaching a differential pressure flow measurement instrument to a process line. Parker is now releasing CCIMS variants for differential pressure level measurement applications, and for static pressure measurement as well.
