Combination Valves | Air Valves D-060 HF NS series

Description

The D-060 HF NS series Combination Air Valve has the features of both an air release valve and an air & vacuum valve.The air release component is designed to automatically release small pockets of air to the atmosphere as they accumulate along a pipeline or piping system when it is full and operating under pressure.

The air & vacuum component is designed to automatically discharge or admit large volumes of air during the filling or draining of a pipeline or piping system. This valve will open to relieve negative pressures whenever water column separation occurs.

Applications

  • - Water pipelines with anticipated conditions of surge and water hammer.
  • - On the peaks of water pipelines with steep slopes.
  • - At the points of water pipelines where water column separation occurs.

D-060-C HF - additional applications

  • - Water pipelines vulnerable to vandalism and/or water theft.
  • - Water systems found in remote areas.

D-062 HF NS and D-065 HF NS - additional applications

- Water systems with pressure demands of 25 bar and 40 bar (D-062 HF NS and D-065 HF NS respectively).

Operation

The D-060 HF NS series Combination Non Slam Air Valve is a surge dampening, slam-preventing, 3-stage combination air valve. The air valve provides high capacity vacuum protection and, at the same time, efficient surge suppression.

At sudden drainage and/or water column separation (sudden pump trips or valve closure, for instance), the air & vacuum orifice admits air at high flow rates, thus preventing vacuum.

As the water column and/or pressure wave returns, large volumes of air are discharged at high velocities, raising the non-slam disc, partially closing the air & vacuum orifice and allowing air to exhaust slowly through the smaller orifice of the non-slam disc.

This slowly exhausting air pocket dampens the slam of the returning water column, thus suppressing the pressure surge.

As the water flow arrives at a much slower rate, dampened by the slower air discharge, it buoys up the main float, gently closing the air & vacuum component of the air valve.

The S-050-C, S-052, S-015 air release component continues releasing air while the pipeline and the air valve are pressurized.
