Rigid Conduit Manifold (RCM)


The Rigid Conduit Manifold (RCM) provides the interface from both the blue and yellow rigid conduit lines as well as the hotline hose. The RCM is arranged to have a blue and yellow side with the corresponding rigid conduits feeding the appropriate side and the hotline feeding both.

The supply from a rigid conduit may be blocked at the RCM with the hotline signal at each side. The two sides are isolated from each other with a crossover valve.

Each side of the RCM has a connection to the corresponding POD and Hot Stab (to supply the BOP Stack Accumulators).

Using the various isolation, selection and crossover valves supply can be sent from both rigid conduits and the hotline to both PODs and Hot Stabs; from any single supply to both PODs and Hot Stabs, or segregated by side with yellow feeding yellow and blue feeding blue.
