- Low cost
The RCM–1 and RCM–2 Air Distribution Manifolds answer the need for high quality low cost manifolds. Using quality valves and a machined manifold insures pressure tight integrity, ruggedness and a long dependable life. The unique vertical mounting scheme conserves scarce shelter wall space without sacrificing convenient access.
The only difference between the RCM–1 and RCM–2 is the full-scale pressure gauge calibrations. These are 1 psig and 15 psig respectively.
The manifolds provide nine ports, each with an 1/8 inch npt male barbed fitting allowing a single dehydrator to interface up to eight antennas. Optionally, a single manifold can parallel two dehydrators while interfacing up to 7 antennas.
Individual valves combined with the pressure gauge permit quick identification of a leaking antenna or dehydrator. Isolation of the leaky system permits normal operation of the remaining antennas.
