At Orbital Fabrications we have over 35 years’ experience in building gas control equipment and installing gas delivery systems for the distribution of inert special gases and fluids.

A VMP (Valve Manifold Panel) is a gas control panel typically used for inert process gases. The Valve Manifold Panels (VMP) take high pressure bulk gases and distribute them to various locations at the desired flow rates and pressures. They are widely used in many applications and industries including semiconductor, pharmaceutical and R&D applications.

The Valve Manifold Panel (VMP) offers a wide range of configurations depending on purity, flow rates, delivery pressure and more. A single panel can range from a single point of use gas stick up to 20-way arrangements. 

These leak tight gas delivery systems can include isolation valves, filters, pressure reducing regulators & gauges, mass flow meters/controllers, transducers, heat transmitters, excess flow valves as well as pneumatic ESO (emergency shut off) valves. 

Our integrated approach delivers high performance manufacturing and
installation solutions for our clients

Orbital Fabrications has an engineering department with project dedicated engineers ready to assist with design and component selection, ensuring your gas delivery system is a success.

Utilising software such as Solidworks, our engineering team has the expertise and knowledge to facilitate design, component selection and safety requirements for any gas delivery system along with project managing the installation.

We offer the following services:

  • Product design to your P&ID
  • Conceptual design
  • 3D modelling and manufacturing drawings
  • Feasibility studies
  • Value engineering for existing systems
  • Product configuration and optimisation

Whether you need a fully detailed design created from your gas schematic/P&ID or you would like a value engineering exercise with current projects, our engineering department can offer the expertise required for a successful gas delivery system.

Safety will always be the most important factor when working with any process gas.

Orbital Fabrications has extensive knowledge and a complete understanding of the associated dangers of using special gases within industry.

With this in mind, we always strive to deliver the best gas delivery system solution for each application, offering peace of mind and reliability to employers and end users.

Fully Tested and Certified

All gas control equipment is fully tested using one of our three helium mass-spec leak detectors, where leak rates down to a level of 5×10-10 mbar l/sec can be detected.

When resistance to positive pressure is a concern, we subject the final assemblies to a stringent pressure test, either in the form of a functional snoop test or a pressure drop test.

Assemblies can be tested safely within our Cambridgeshire facility to bottle pressure and beyond. To find out more about our expertise in gas delivery systems contact a member of our team today.
