Air vent valve

  1. 1. AIR VENT VALVES
  2. 2. AIR VENT VALVE WORKING PRINCIPLE  When liquid is pumped through the system at startup, the initial air inside the piping is pushed into the air vent by the pressure of the flow. The float remains in the lower part of the air vent, allowing the valve to remain open and continuously discharge air.  After the initial air venting, liquid flows into the air vent. The float rises with the rising liquid and closes the valve.  If air enters the air vent while it is closed, the liquid level drops and the float lowers, allowing the valve to open and discharge air once more.
  3. 3. AIR VENT VALVE PURPOSE  THERE ARE MAINLY TWO REASONS 1. The pockets of Air accumulating at a high points can result in a line restriction (A) Increases Headloss (B) Extends Pumping Cycle & Increases Energy Consumption (C) Promote corrosions of Pipe &Fitting (D) Pressure Drop Higher then Pump Capacity & Stop all flows
  4. 4. AIR VENT VALVE PURPOSE 2. To lead water hammer
  5. 5. AIR VENT VALVE WORKING METHOD  It’s a small orifice valve & will continuously release accumulated air during system operation. As air from pipeline enter the valve during system operation it displaces the water, allowing the float to drop. The air is then released into the atmosphere through a small orifice. As the air is vented it is replaced by water, raising the float and closing the valve orifice. As air accumulates , the valve will continue to cycle in this manner to remove collect air
