AS-Schneider VariAS-Block with swivel adapter

AS-Schneider, an industrial valve manufacturer with operations in North and South America, recently developed a customized manifold based on its VariAS-Range for a company from the crude oil industry. The VariAS-Block is equipped with a swiveling adapter. This enables the position of the whole pressure hook-up to be flexibly varied, making the valves and pressure gauge easily accessible. The measuring instrument is mounted directly on the VariAS-Block.

The customer required a ball valve with block & bleed function for measuring pressure in a pumping system. This had to have an additional test connector. In addition, the position of the connected pressure gauge was to be flexibly adjustable for ease of reading. A previous solution with several ball valves did not satisfy these requirements.

AS-Schneider therefore developed an individual solution based on the VariAS-Range. The forged double block & bleed valves with one-piece valve body replaced conventional installations consisting of several individual valves. The valve specialist fitted the VariAS-Block with a swivelling adapter at the input. This enables the position of the whole pressure hook-up to be flexibly varied, making the valves and pressure gauge easily accessible. The gauge is mounted directly on the VariAS-Block. The primary isolation is carried out by a ball valve, and a separate test port with a fitted test point is integrated into the VariAS-Block. The test port is shut off by means of a needle valve. A small vent valve is fitted for bleeding.
