WATERMAN AIR VENTS protect irrigation and piping systems by releasing entrapped air as pipelines fill and by providing vacuum relief when lines drain. Installation of proper air relief is essential to the proper operation and longevity of piping systems, and the proper functioning of system pumps.
Installation of proper Waterman air vents can help prevent:
Impedance of flow due to air obstruction or head loss
- Inadequate flow to crops
- Water hammer and vacuum damage
- Corrosion and cavitation
- Danger to operators from air-blown parts
