PRODUCT FEATURES:

  • Reliable operation reduces water hammer incidents
  • Threaded discharge outlet allows connection of additional piping for venting and drainage
  • Dynamic design allows for high capacity air discharge while preventing premature closing
  • Body and all operating parts made of high-strength corrosion-resistant composite materials
  • Float and seal assembly are enclosed in a one-piece, easily replaceable unit - independent of the air vent body
  • Sealing assembly, with its unique patented rolling seal feature which allows gradual opening, closing and self cleaning, is contained in the one-piece float assembly
  • Simple and reliable reinforced nylon body is compact in size and light-weight
  • The light-weight feature is ideal for installation on plastic piping systems and other light-weight piping systems

    DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION:

    • The Pro Air Vent combines the features of both an air release and an air and vacuum vent.
    • This air vent will open to relieve negative pressures whenever water column separation occurs.
    • The air and vacuum component is designed to automatically discharge or admit large volumes of air during the filling or draining of a pipeline or piping system.
    • The air release component is designed to automatically release small pockets of air to the atmosphere as they accumulate along a pipeline or piping system when it is full and operating under pressure.

      APPLICATION:

      • At end lines
      • Before water meters
      • After deep well pumps
      • On strainers and filters
      • On long, constant sloped pipeline segments
      • Pump stations - after the pump and after the check valve
      • Downstream (after) and upstream (before) shut-off valves
      • At peaks along the pipeline and at peaks relative to hydraulic gradient
