The Future of Manifolds

Designed to withstand a working pressure of up to 30MPa, our manifolds are compatible and interchangeable for use with all gases. Tailoring our manifold configuration to suit customer requirement is standard at CEFRANK. We’ve got a variety of manifolds to suit all gas applications. Here’s a look at our some of our most exciting developments.

CEFRANK Manifold

DC3 – Quick Repair

The DC3 manifold has been designed with angled pigtails that allow for quick and easy repair on-site. No need to remove or loosen cylinders, no need for special equipment. The broken or damaged part can simply be unscrewed and replaced with a new one, allowing for ultimate convenience both for the gas company and the end-user.

Long-life Acetylene

We have developed a state-of-the-art acetylene manifold of stainless steel construction. CEFRANK’s acetylene manifold is hard-wearing, rust-proof, and long-lasting. The spring-loaded manifold provides convenience for the end user and offers greater flexibility to incorporate disparate cylinder sizes. This manifold benefits from in-built two-way non-return valves, called flash arrestors and features stainless quick connectors for quick and easy installation.

DC-H2 – The Universal Manifold

The DC-H2 manifold is the jewel in the CEFRANK crown. A new product, this manifold has the potential for universal application. The first of its kind in the world, this manifold has a unique floating design, which allows its use on flammable, non-flammable and inert and special mixed gases.

Due to the isolating valves, allowing each cylinder to be cut off from the rest of the battery, this manifold can be used for even flammable gases which require this feature for safety. However, isolation valves are also useful for securing and protecting valuable specialty mixed gases.

Smart Design, Asset Protection

At CEFRANK we approach our design process with one major aim in mind, and that is protection. Protection in terms of safety to users, but also protection of customer assets. Our bundles house a number of high-value assets including cylinders and the actual gas. There are several features in our design that work to protect various elements of the cylinders and the sometimes very expensive gas contained within.

CEFRANK Manifold

  • During regulatory hydrostatic testing, the cylinder thread can often become damaged when using blocks or valves with threads made from hard metals like stainless steel. Our forged brass t-block components bear the brunt of wear and tear and are easily removed from the cylinder during testing.
  • Exclusive use of male nuts, which are much less vulnerable to damage throughout the life of the bundle increases durability.
  • No external welds means the manifold is far more resistant to damage and drastically minimises leaks.
  • Unlike the traditional single-piece manifold, our DC range allows for fast and cost-effective repair and replacement. Simply remove the damaged pigtail or component and replace it with a new one.
