The I.S.T. rotary manifold T06 connects one or two supplies with up to 18 outlets. Thus, tank groups, mixers etc, can be interconnected to 1 or 2 filling devices. The fully piggable version of the T06 allows for a pigging process from the tank up to the filling device. The manifold is also available with dry break couplings. These couplings shut both sides of the line after disconnection of the couplings.
1 x 6 and 1 x 12: The compact solution for a filling unit. With central outlet and access port
Here's the space-saving and operationally reliable solution for distribution problems: on the I.S.T. rotary manifold 1 x 6 or 1 x 12, fixed I.S.T. sliding couplings are arranged round a central pipe nozzle, from which an 180° elbow projects. Switchovers are performed by rotating this elbow. A pneumatic cylinder activates the locking devices. Sensors ensure accurate positioning. The 1 x 12 rotary manifold operates fully automatically by pneumatic drive or manually. The smaller 1 x 6 model can only be operated manually.
2 x 12: For two filling units. Now with unrestricted rotation
On the fully automatic 2 x 12 rotary manifold, an elbow and an S-pipe rotate on the radius of the I.S.T. sliding couplings. A separate pneumatic motor moves the pipes, the positions of which are monitored by sensors. The control unit co-ordinates all paths of travel. The rotary manifold is protected by a wire mesh guard - or with shatter-proof PMMA type guards on request.
