AV2000 Air Vent
The AV2000 air vent is used on industrial steam applications up to 650 PSIG for the removal of air and non-condensable gases from process equipment, vessels and piping. The air vent should be located at a high point in the system or vessel and can be installed in any orientation.
• Welded stainless steel thermal element
• Hardened stainless steel seat and valve plugs for extended service life
• Integral strainer to protect from contamination
• Steam pressures up to 650 PSIG
• Special Subcool Options Available
How It Works
The thermostatic air vent contains a welded stainless steel thermal element that expands when heated and contracts when cooled. When air and non-condensable gases are present, the valve is in the open discharge position. When steam reaches the air vent, the element expands and closes the valve off tightly.
Installation and Maintenance
The air vent should be located at a high point in the system or vessel and can be installed in any orientation. An isolation valve should be installed to facilitate removal and replacement without system shut-down. Unit is seal-welded and non-repairable.
