S-015 S-016 | Automatic Air Release Valve
The S-015, S-016 series automatic air release valve releases accumulated air from the system while it is under pressure. The presence of air in a water system can reduce the effective cross sectional flow area resulting in increased pressure loss and deceased flow. Unwanted air may also cause water hammer and metering inaccuracies, while hastening corrosion.
- Single chamber air valve, directly operated by the flow medium.
- Releases entrapped air from pressurized systems.
- The valve's rolling seal mechanism design enables a one size orifice for a wide pressure range. (3 – 928 PSI).
- Available in sizes: 3/4", 1" - BSP / NPT – male threads.
