Cla-Val Air Release Valves for Water Systems, and Combination Air Release and Vacuum Breaker Valves protect your piping system by automatically eliminating air pockets and preventing vacuum formations from building-up in the pipeline during filling or draining operations. Excessive air in a system can dramatically reduce capacity and increase power demand as pumps work harder to maintain desired flow. In extreme cases, excessive air or vacuum formation can cause line breaks. The best way to protect your piping system from these negative conditions is to utilize Cla-Val air valves in the locations most likely to experience air or vacuum build-up: high-points in the pipeline, adjacent to pumps, in long pipe runs and at deep well installations.
There are several configurations and a wide variety of materials to choose from depending on the particular application. Whatever your requirements are, Cla-Val has the air valve you need to achieve the most from your system.
