Valves are customisable with options such as a variable throttle device to give adjustable venting control, inflow and outflow check device for one-way airflow and flanged outlet for piping away facility.

Why use air valves?

Air release valves are used in pressurized pipe work systems to vent off unwanted air within them. Trapped air rises and collects within the high points of the system. As air vented water fills the valve, raising the float until the valve seat is pushed back against the orifice closing it off from atmosphere again.
