Swagelok® Modular Platform Components (MPC)
ANSI/ISA 76.00.02-Compliant Design, 38.2 mm (1.5 in.) Platform
The Swagelok modular platform component system is a system for use within process analyzer, sample-handling, and fluid distribution systems. The Swagelok MPC system includes a complete selection of MPC series components and a complementary configuration tool called the MPC System Configurator.

Swagelok MPC Components
Swagelok surface-mount components are designed, manufactured, and
tested to the same stringent quality requirements as conventional
Swagelok fluid system components. They provide reliable Swagelok
performance and value in a compact, ANSI/ISA 76.00.02-compliant
Swagelok substrate flow components are made by butt welding two
elbows together, eliminating entrapment zones and the need for O-ring
seals between positions. This exclusive Swagelok design requires fewer
O-ring seals than other modular platform systems, easing assembly and
reducing the number of potential leak points.
- The components consist of a variety of Swagelok surface-mount
components, which are ANSI/ISA 76.00.02-compliant, and a large
selection of substrate and manifold flow components, which create the
fluid distribution system.
- The substrate layer provides the main flow path between the
surface-mount components.The manifold layer provides the flow path
between two or more parallel substrates. The substrate layer bolts over
the manifold layer to create the substrate-manifold assembly.
- Standard O-rings provide leak-tight seals between each
surface-mount and substrate flow component and between the substrate
and manifold flow components.
- An MPC series assembly provides a compact fluid-distribution
system with a reduced footprint for efficient use of component space.

MPC system component selection and the assembly process are
simplified with the use of the MPC System Configurator, a free
Windows®-based software program that can be downloaded. The Configurator
allows the user to create a customized system by defining, placing, and
connecting surface-mount components on a layout grid.
Once the layout is complete, the Configurator identifies the MPC
series flow connectors (including substrates, manifolds, seals, and
assembly hardware) that are necessary to build the complete system. A
bill of material is generated for ease of ordering components, and an
assembly diagram is produced to facilitate assembly.
Every Swagelok MPC surface-mount component is factory tested with
nitrogen at 1000 psig (69 bar) or at its maximum working pressure if
less than 1000 psig (69 bar). Seats have a maximum allowable leak rate
of 0.1 std cm3/min. Shell testing is performed to a
requirement of no detectable leakage with a liquid leak detector.
Cleaning and Packaging
All Swagelok MPC components are cleaned and packaged in
accordance with Swagelok Standard Cleaning and Packaging (SC-10).
