Subplates are also known as “mounting pads”, “sub bases” and “base plates”. Subplates give valves a mounting pad, and allow for many different port styles and locations to meet the design requirements of the system. Daman uses the term "subplates" to refer to mounting only one valve in a low profile (height) configuration. Manifolds are used to refer to applications where more than one valve will be mounted and is generally taller (height).
Daman subplates are available in aluminum or ductile iron with ports located either on the sides or on the back of the subplate.
