From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In engineering, a manifold is a wide pipe, or channel, into which, or from which, smaller pipes or channels lead.
Various types of engineering manifolds include:
- Exhaust manifold, an engine part which collects the exhaust gases from multiple cylinders into one pipe
- Hydraulic manifold, a component used to regulate fluid flow in a hydraulic system, thus controlling the transfer of power between actuators and pumps
- Inlet manifold or "intake manifold", an engine part which supplies the air or fuel/air mixture to the cylinders
- Manifold (scuba), in a scuba set, connects two or more diving cylinders
- Manifold chemistry, an apparatus used in chemistry to manipulate gases
