New instrumentation manifolds

Published:  13 June, 2007

Parker Instrumentation has launched a range of instrumentation manifolds meeting the stringent new ISO 15848 standard for fugitive emissions. Available in double-block-and-bleed configurations, in either monoflange or low-profile flange-ended forms, the new manifolds provide process instrument interfaces to help processing organizations enhance their LDAR (leak detection and repair) programmes.

Published in 2006, ISO 15848 parts 1 and 2 (defining a classification system and qualification procedures, and production acceptance test of industrial valves, respectively) specify new ultra-low standards for emissions, which are attracting the attention of oil, gas and chemical/petrochemical organizations worldwide. The standard is mainly used for process valves, but is now starting to be widely considered for instrumentation-sized components as well, especially on environmentally sensitive projects.

"Interest in ISO 15848 is progressing from the process valve to the instrumentation arena, and we are delighted to enter the market early in the cycle", says Parker Instrumentation's Kevin Ballard.  "With increasing environmental regulation, we expect the demand for ISO 15848 compliance, which effectively sets a 'zero emissions' standard, to soar in the coming decade."
