Swagelok reports that its Modular Platform Components (MPC), together with new configuration software, make it easy to develop and assemble complete process analyzer and sample-handling systems using an ANSI/ISA 76.00.02-compliant miniature modular design.





MPC's interface controls the dimensions and location of the sealing surfaces to allow change of just one element of the system without modification of the entire system. The system meets all requirements of the specification for the 38.2 mm footprint. With this new approach, system designers can reduce the size, weight, and flow path volume of their process analysis and sampling systems.

The modular platform components consist of surface mounts, including shut-off, needle, metering, toggle and check valves, as well as filters, substrates, and manifolds. The configuration software allows users to place components on a computerized layout grid; identifies all the additional flow connectors necessary to build the fluid system, and generates a bill of materials and assembly diagram. www.swagelok.com

  • Reduced size, weight, and footprint

  • Reduced layout time and costs

  • Easy assembly, installation, and maintenance
