The ARI K-020 Kinetic air valve for sewage discharges air during the filling or charging of the system and admits air to the system during system drainage.
The valve is specially designed to operate with liquids carrying solid particles such as sewage and effluent. The valve’s unique design guarantees complete separation between the liquid and the sealing mechanism and provides optimum work conditions.
The valve is specially designed to operate with liquids carrying solid particles such as sewage and effluent. Provides separation of the liquid from the sealing mechanism. The air gap separation is sustained under pressure up to 16 bar by conical body shape.Kinetic component – the valve must discharge air at high velocity during filling of the system and admit air during its drainage.
The valve should be designed to prevent premature closing and discharge air up to 0.8 bar (11 psi) differential pressure.
Guarantee complete separation of the liquid from the sealing mechanism by creating an air gap at the top of the valve.
The air gap is achived by a conical body shape that maintains maximum distance between the liquid and the Sealing Mechanism; while obtaining minimum body length.
Funnel-shaped lower body ensures that the residue sewage matter will sink to the system and be carried away.
The valve may be flushed through a ball valve at the valve’s lower part.
Reliable operation reduces water hammer incidents.
Dynamic design allows high velocity air discharge, preventing premature closing.
Lightweight, small dimensions, simple and reliable structure.
All inner metal parts made of stainless steel. Standard steel body – baked FEB 250 Micron coating.
Available with a Stainless Steel body or rilsan and enamel coatings.
Flanges are available in BS/ISO/ANSI standards.
Working pressure range: 0.2-16 bar. (3-230 psi).
Available in 3″ (80mm) – 4″ (100mm).
Drainage outlets enables removal of excess fluids.
