Redesigned and enhanced 400 Series two-valve, forged-brass manifolds have been expanded to more than 20 different configurations. A dynamic full-flow dual O-ring valve design allows for faster evacuation and charging, and angled hose hangers give users better access to the equipment. The manifolds work with a variety of refrigerants, including zeotropic and azeotropic. Other features include color-coded ergonomic handles, sturdy patented gauges with protective boots for resistance against vibration, pulsation and shock, and high-performance hoses.
