Air release valve

Air Release Valves or Air Relief Valve function to release air pockets that collect at each high point of a full pressured pipeline. An air release valve can open against internal pressure due to its internal level mechanism multiplies the float force to be greater than the internal pressure. The orifice gets opened by this greater force whenever air pockets get collected in the valve.

These valves are essential for pipeline efficiency and water hammer protection. These valves protect industrial and wastewater piping systems from damage by automatically eliminating air pockets, admitting air when appropriate to the application, and preventing vacuum formations from building up in the pipeline during filling or draining operations. Depending on the particular application, there are several configurations and a wide variety of materials to choose from.
