Can Zimmerlin manways be supplied with fittings welded to them?
Zimmerlin manway covers can be fitted with various types of weld nozzles such as aseptic ferrules, tri-clamp ferrules, and standard ANSI type flanges. Weld-in style sight glasses such as our “KB” series, tri-clamp sight glasses like our “SSTC” model, and DIN SS type “Screw-on” sight glasses can also be fitted to Zimmerlin manway covers.
What is the standard finish on Zimmerlin manways and can customers specify a special finish?
Standard finishes vary for each type of Zimmerlin manway. For example, pressureless manways up to 24” diameter have a brushed finish with a 2B / pickled finish on the neck of the manway. Pressure manways have a standard surface finish of 2B / pickled on the ID & OD of the manway. Other surface finishes are available upon request.
Can Zimmerlin manways be supplied with an assist mechanism for easy lifting of cover?
A spring assist device facilitates opening and closing of the manway cover by reducing lifting force, helping to prevent personal and cover damage while ensuring smooth functionality.
