Quite often, the hydraulic engineer gets some confusion on the eventual use of conventional double chamber air valves or opting for the newest single chamber design. We would like to draw some highlights on the benefits for the plant user when selecting compact single chamber air valves as follows:
- full-unobstructed bore thanks to no chambers; * Rib guided float along the single chamber body; * Avoids a premature closing by flooding; * The Rapid Filling Prevention (CSA patented) avoids premature closing; * Float Resilient back seat O ring; * No need of manual valve for plant maintenance thus avoiding the typical disadvantages of cavitation, bore reduction, turbulence, packing service and space * less inner parts and seals; * much lighter design; *
Therefore, we would strongly recommend for single chamber air valves due to their versatility, flexibility, less weight and space and longer life span.
