The Brinkmann/Radleys StarFish Gas/Vacuum Distribution Manifold allows gas or a vacuum from a single source to be evenly distributed to up to five positions or vessels (Does not control or regulate gas/vacuum flow). Connectors feature leak-proofshut-off valves. Each water manifold contains a series of five shut-off valves that automatically open when a connector is plugged in and close and seal when the connector is removed. Consequently, reaction set-ups can be simply plugged in or removed from rapidly and without water spills. Typically two water manifolds are used in each system, one to distribute water to the condensers and one to collect coolant for recirculation or send to drain.
