Why use air valves?

Air release valves are used in pressurised 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, the float rises until the valve seat is pushed back against the orifice closing it off from atmosphere again.
