WASTE WATER
AIR VALVE DESIGN
An innovative design with a
large air gap between liquid
and sealing system ensures
top performance, even
when used with an impure
or particularly aggressive
medium.

The valve combines large


volume air discharge/
intake whilst filling/draining
a pipeline, with automatic
release of air/gas liberated
from the fluid.
Other design features and benefits
Funnel-shaped lower body prevents
accumulation of deposits at the bottom of the
valve.
Spring between the stem and upper float
compensates for slight pressure changes in
the line and maintains the air gap.
Large orifice in the automatic valve releases
large volume of air or gas when the line is
under pressure.
Lightweight construction offers easy handling.
Drain in the valves side gives possibility of
drainage and flushing from external clean
water source.
Stainless steel and polypropylene float system
provides high corrosion resistance.
Threaded opening on top of air valve enables
mounting of exhaust pipe and odour control.
Low sealing requirement, 0.05 bar.

During the charging of the line, air is released at


a high flow rate through the orifice of the kinetic
valve until the line is full.

During normal operation the kinetic orifice remains


closed, and the automatic orifice releases trapped
air in the line.

* The spring prevents unnecessary opening of the


automatic valve, thus the water level will not rise up
to the sealing system and discharge into the open.

During emptying of the line, the kinetic orifice


admits air at a high flow rate to prevent vacuum
damage to the system.

*In what form is the pipe profile submitted Excel table spreadsheet
AutoCAD Polyline profile drawing

*Liquid type Clear water


Wastewater (solids or aggressive elements)

Pipe filling velocity (including units, default 1.5 ft/s)

Preferred maximum spacing between air valves (including units, default 500 m.)

Preferred air valve body material (default stainless steel for wastewater)

Should manifolds (multiple air valve in a single installation) be avoided if possible?


Yes

No

Pipeline section data (section staring point must be described pump station, reservoir, elevated
reservoir, middle of the pipeline, etc)
Section: If there are no changes in pipe material, pipe diameter, and/or flowrate, and there are no booster
pumps along the line, the whole project is one pipe section. Different sections are determined by pipe
characteristics, flow changes and pressure enhancement. Most pipelines analyzed consist of only one
section.
