Kinetic Air Valve with Sluice Valve
KINETIC OPERATING PRINCIPLE: In the development of the Kinetic Air Release Valve hydrodynamic principles have been applied to produce a unique patented feature. Tow moving parts, the ball (float) seals the orifices but positively remains open during the exhausting of air. This valve is immediately closed when the water rises in the valve to lift the ball to the orifice seat for a drop tight closure. The kinetic air release valve as designed so that when the large orifice is open the ball in such a matter that a resultant pressure on the ball is downward and increase as the exhausting air velocity increase. Thus, air at any velocity can be discharged without the possibility of the valve blowing shut or collapsing the ball (float) even when the air is moving at its critical velocity.
