Full Description The effects of air and vacuum pockets present in a liquid piping system can negatively impact not only pump, meter, and control valve operation but can also be responsible for pipeline breaks and collapses. Choosing and installing the correct air valve is critical to all liquid piping systems. This manual provides essential information for selecting, sizing, locating, and installing air valves in water, wastewater and reclaimed water pipeline systems. This revised second edition includes information pertaining to wastewater applications including scouring velocities for larger piping systems, and information on an inflow preventer device installed to protect from malicious tampering, freeze and flood, and to prevent the entry of contaminated water into the potable water distribution system. Operators, technicians, and engineers will use this manual to understand the design, use, application and maintenance of air valves.

An improper lceation ean render the valve ineffective, The following guidelines are recommended for the general location and corresponding types of air valves, However, there may be other lacations where valves may be deemed necessary.

The vertical axis is the elevation of the profile stations relative to a specified horizontal datum. Description No. A high point is defined by the hydraulic gradient and is fonsidered the upper end of any pipe segment that slopes up to the hydraulic gradient or runs parallel to it.

Airfvacuum valves or combination air valves can be used on the draining side of mainline valves tw facilitate draining of the pipeline. Increased Downslope.

Combination air valves should be considered at. Air valves mounted on these types of pumps may require special consideration in selection because of the violent changes in flow rate during pump cycling.

An antisiphon valve is designed to vent air during startup, close tight during flowing conditions, and open to break the siphon during reverse-flow conditions using a flow paddle.

Product Detail

The safe operation and efficiency of a pipeline are dependent on the continual removal of air from the pipeline. This chapter includes an explanation of the effects of air and the sources of air in a pipeline. Therefore, when water is pressurized, its capacity to hold air is greatly magnified. The bubbling in soft drinks occurs after they are opened because the pressure over the fluid is reduced, and the excess carbon dioxide gas rapidly escapes. Once out of solution, air will not readily return to solution and will collect in pockets at high points along the pipeline. Air comes out of solutions in a pipeline because of low pressure zones created by partially open valves, cascading flow in a partially filled pipe, variations in flow velocity caused by changing pipe diameters and slopes, and changes in pipeline elevation. An air pocket may reduce the flow of water in a pipeline by reducing the cross sectional flow area of the pipeline and may, if the volume of the air pocket is sufficient, completely air bind the pipeline and stop the flow of water Karassik,
