    Recognize this manifold?

    Trying to figure out what it is and see if there is a rebuild kit for it?

    The last guy at this plant left 2 of those behind I would be interested in what they are as well.

    They remind me a set of Tiff's I had years ago. (15+) The glycerin gauges are exactly like them. I tossed the manifold years ago because if you overtightened the valves just a bit you squashed the Teflon seat. Still have the gauges though.

    Talked to TIF recently. They still make rebuild kits for them.

    Mine was black and that was how the the TIF guy identified it.

    Snap on use to sale those TIFF units off of their tool trucks, they were painted red but were made by TIFF.

    Don't know if the Snap on man could help you out or not.

    I have a set hanging in the garage I've had since about 98 or 99. If I remember correctly they were purchased through United Refrigeration...

    Looks a lot like a Refco manifold.

    I've got a set in my garage too. They were touted as the best idea in manifolds at the time,,,,,,Valves were always "Loose" feeling. Guess they're still serviceable, just don't use them.

    Those are some of your first "combination" gauge set. The stems on those had rubber seals and always felt loose. The seats were flat, if I remember correctly, and both the seats and the seals would leak after a time. Coating them in refrigeration oil was necessary to keep them from leaking for a while.
