An Air Release Valve is used to eliminate small air pockets that form at the high points of a pipeline and restrict flow. Air pockets reduce pipeline capacity and increase the amount of energy required to pump fluids.
AIR RELEASE VALVES
The Clean Water Air Release Valves (ARV) function to release air pockets that collect at each high point of a pressured pipeline, and are essential for pipeline efficiency and water hammer protection. Air Release Valves are available in a wide variety of orifice sizes and materials of construction to meet a wide range of applications.
