The TOP-FLO® 60ARV air relief valve is a great way to evacuate the air from your system without the risk of product loss.
The valve will not allow air to enter into the line or container under vacuum but will automatically let air escape when you’re introducing the product. Some of the applications for this valve include, but are not limited to, mounting it on top of a pipeline at high points in the line where air may get trapped and cause air/vapor lock. On top of the suction line prior to a pump to aid in priming the pump, and even on top of a vessel to evacuate the air during the filling operation. The 60ARV air relief valve has a maximum pressure rating of 150 psi @ 275° F. The material of construction is 316L stainless steel body, polypropylene ball, FKM elastomers with 304 stainless steel clamps. The standard finish is 32Ra ID/OD. The valve base comes in 1-1/2”, 2”, and 2-1/2” tri-clamp. Click here for more information.
The valve must be mounted in the vertical position in order for it to work properly and the product density must be 1.0 or higher. If you’re designing a system and would like advice on the proper use or position for this valve, please contact us today and we would be happy to help you.
