S-050 | Automatic Air Release Valve "Segev"
The S-050 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. In spite of its compact and light weight structure, the S-050 series Automatic Air Release Valve has a 0.0186 Inch2 orifice that enables it to release air at high flow rates and is not exposed to obstruction by debris.
- 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 – 250 psi).
- Available in sizes: 1/2", 3/4", 1" - NPT – male threaded connections.
