Air Valves

arv1a_pARV-1″- A Automatic Air Valve

 

 

Description
This valve is designed to efficiently extract air trapped in pipes, filters, tanks and other places where unwanted air might cause problems. The valve has one seal, which expels both kinetic and residual air automatically, and this function is not affected by water pressure.Its exclusive Y-shaped discharge outlet design allows a much greater air flow than in other valves of this type, in both the intake and the discharge processes. Due to a perfect fit, the valve is totally sealed even at very low pressures. Simple in design, with a total of only 5 parts, it’s easy to disassemble for maintenance and cleaning when needed. The body is red in color, making it very visible. The base is 1″ male BSP.

Performance
The valve performs three functions:

  • It extracts the air from pipes as the pipeline fills, and when water reaches the inside of the valve, the float rises and seals the discharge outlet.
  • It exerts continuous automatic control, eliminating any residual air pockets reaching the valve, as the float immediately drops, partly or totally opening the discharge outlet. The internal water pressure does not prevent this function from being carried out.
  • It prevents pipe collapse, because, at the least decrease in pressure, the float drops, opening the seal and allowing outside air to enter the pipe.

 ARV1KARV-1″-KA Kinetic and Automatic Air Valve

 

 

Description
An economical and effective valve designed to extract and induce air from pipes, large filters, tanks or any other similar equipment which should work under water pressure without the presence of air. An exclusive double seal system, one for kinetic performance and another for automatic control, together with its low density float, makes this valve completely watertight as the pipe is being pressurized or emptied, no matter how slowly these operations are carried out. A new inner design allows the float to resist the air stream even when it’s faster than sound in the outlet. The valve will only shut by means of water.  The outlet elbow feature with built in filter prevent foreign objects from entering the valve. The base is 1″ male BSP.

Performance
The valve performs three functions:

  • It extracts larger volumes of air from pipes as they fill. This stage ends as water reaches the inside of the valve, raising the float and closing the main discharge outlet.
  • It exerts continuous automatic control, eliminating any residual pocket of air that might reach the valve, as and when this happens, the float drops, partially or totally opening the discharge outlet. This function will not be prevented from being carried out regardless of the water pressure.
  • It allows air to be induced into the pipeline when the pipeline empties of water preventing a vacuum effect and thus protecting the pipeline from collapsing.
