MrPEX Stainless Steel manifolds achieve the highest level of long term corrosion resistance by using a bright annealed high-grade stainless steel with high nickel content. This creates a stable material structure with low levels of ferrite and magnetism. To eliminate the possibility of contact corrosion, all fittings connected to the manifold are nickel-plated.
The manifolds are fully assembled, ready for mounting, the supply side feature adjustable flow-meters for flows up to 1.45 gpm per loop, and the return side has balancing on/off valves, in accordance with DIN EN 1264-4. The adjustable flow-meter allows for a positive shut-off and the manual plastic cap on the return valve can be removed to accommodate a valve actuator. The return balancing valve disc is designed to enable exact adjustments of small flows while still being able to handle large flows with minimal resistance. The combined branch Cv value is 1.64 gpm and the manifold body accommodates flows up to 14 gpm.
