The hydraulic manifold gathers the valves in one place and allows making connections between them. The hydraulic manifold block compact nature is a great advantage, as it decreases in the number of connections and therefore leakage risks. The valve assembly time in the hydraulic manifold is relatively less compared to the conventional type. The type of material used for the hydraulic manifold block affects weight, working pressure and price. Cast iron, steel and aluminum are among the most widely used material chose according to the varying requirement. The solid manifold block is drilled for fluid flow path according to the valve specification then internal thread is machined to house the cartridge valve in the specific cavities directly into the manifold block. Generally, only the control part is apparent. The cartridge valve is small in size comparing to the ordinary conventional valve. The hydraulic test manifold will give efficient usage and compact floor space occupancy
