air vent valve for water

To replace an air vent valve for water system, first disconnect the existing valve from the water line. Following that, disassemble the air vent valve and replace the O-ring and rubber washer. Replace the new air vent valve clockwise after applying Teflon tape to the threads. A small, circular device that allows water to exit while preventing air from entering is known as an air vent valve. It comes in a variety of styles and materials.

Air Vent Valve For Water Systems

When water begins to flow through the pipe, air within the system is pushed toward the apco air vent valve. This air reduces the water pipeline's effective cross-sectional area, resulting in lower flow and higher head loss. It may also cause corrosion and water hammer. As a result, it is critical to install an air vent valve in your water line.

Air can accumulate at a high point in the pipe in some systems. If there is no flow of water, the air pocket will expand. Using an air release valve will help to prevent this problem and keep your system running smoothly. While these valves are costly, they can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.

The volume of air vented through an air release valve is proportional to the working pressure in the location of the valve. As a result, the higher the working pressure, the more air that can be vented through the valve. As a result, it is critical to select the appropriate size air vent valve for the piping system. If the system pressure is 100 psi, a 1-inch valve with a 5/16-inch orifice will suffice.
