44. What is float valve?


Used to control liquid level in tanks, operated by float, which rises with liquid level and opens the valve to
control water level. It can also remove air from system, in which case, air flows out of system in valve open
condition, but when water reaches valve, float inside valve raises to close the valve and stop flow of water.
Used in drip legs.
