Raw Material Source Change and Pressure Rating Update for J6 Manifolds
To improve delivery of J6 manifolds, Swagelok has changed raw material sources. Effective immediately, the manifold body for all J6 manifold assemblies will change from an extrusion to bar stock. Material composition is the same, and there is no impact to product performance. The change results in a different visual appearance as shown in the image below.
As a result of the change, the width of the manifold will increase from 2.36 in. (60mm) to 2.44 in. (62 mm). This dimension is highlighted in the images below.
An additional update has been made to the pressure rating for the 1 in. size end connection listed in catalog MS-02-214. The catalog previously stated a maximum working pressure of 2000 PSIG (137 BAR) at 200 °F (93 °C) for 1 in. size end connections. The catalog has been updated to reflect the actual rating of 3000 PSIG (206 BAR) at 200 °F (93 °C). All other pressure and temperature ratings remain the same
