Instruments Valves and Manifold History

06/14/2016 8:09 AM

Hello everybody!

We are currently writing some “white paper” regarding manifold and instrument valves(Link Removed) and we are searching for information about their history, operation, final application etc.

Surfing on internet is very hard to find such information. No one has indication about how to choose an instrument manifold, why there are so many shapes, the meaning of a functional diagram instead of another etc.

Does anyone of you have information about history of the valves attached on pressure measurement instruments and the evolutionary process related on them?

For example the name of company and year they start to produce this solution, or what was the state of the art before manifolds coming.

Is there some literature about instrument valves, manifolds and/or pressure measurement systems?

Thank you in advance for you cooperation

Some link to the products....

White paper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_paper Wikipedia "A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that informs readers concisely about a complex issue and presents the issuing body's philosophy on the matter." It sounds like what you are doing is homework. A big part of doing homework is learning how to search the internet.

You might try contacting manifold and instrument valves manufacturers and asking them.

"The original poster is a <...manifold and instrument valves manufacturer"

Not for long if this is an example of their skill level.

Could be their marketing department asking the question, which would make more sense.

True, but would you want to deal with people who have no clue and just regurgitate what they have been fed by total strangers on an anonymous web site?

Hence my lack of providing a detailed answer for the poster's questions.

Is this phishing for a white paper an annual event ?

Same question posted on a different forum about a year ago.
