A Professional Air Flow Laboratory


The A.R.I. air flow laboratory is unique (the only one of its kind in the region) and is designed for testing air valves. The air flow lab was designed and
operates according to the ISO 17025 global standard and was adapted to meet the ISO 9001 quality standard and the ISO 14001 environmental
standard. Bench test assessments are carried out according to worldwide testing standards as well as the European standard EN 1074. The initial
calibration for the air flow lab was based on results from the CESAME (France) High Pressure Test Bench used for flow calibration and testing.
This lab calibrates large diameter gas meters based on the principle of the ORIFICE PLATE.

The A.R.I. air flow laboratory performs assessments of air flow rates during intake and discharge, air flow tests for air valve premature closure as well
as a vacuum bench test which tests the flow rate for air intake into air valves when the pipeline is under negative pressure.
These tests are carried out and calculated in accordance with international standards for moisture and temperature variables.
The air flow laboratory tests all types of air valves (air release, air & vacuum, combination, non-slam, one-way etc.) that operate on water and
wastewater systems and are in the diameter range of 1/2 to 12.

The air flow laboratory employs 4 air storage tanks, each one with a volume capacity of 10 cubic meters, plus an additional 10 cubic meter air tank
that is employed as the working tank.
The air is stored at 13 bar of pressure and enables testing of air valves up to 12 in diameter and, with an additional compressor, enables automatic
air valves to be tested at a pressure of 16 bars.

The air flow laboratory is computerized; therefore, once the characteristics of the tested air valves are entered in the computer and the air valve is
connected to the test bench, the test is run. At its conclusion, the test reports are immediately available on the computer without further processing.
The air flow lab is open to invited guests and trainees, who are able to view the testing and receive the results in real time, either viewed on a large

INTRODUCTION

Innovative Valves for Liquid Transmission Applications


A.R.I. Flow Control Accessories is among the world leaders in the development, manufacture and distribution of liquid transmission accessories.
A.R.I. engineers have developed a wide range of sophisticated valves made from various types of metals and composite materials. The valves are
designed for a variety of applications. Our engineers are working constantly to broaden the range of products, improve and enhance existing product
lines and develop new product lines. We incorporate the highest standards of quality control in compliance with Israeli and international standards.
Most of the A.R.I. products are protected by registered patents. A.R.I. operations, development and marketing systems comply with the requirements
of the international ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 standards and are certified as such.

The A.R.I. Commitment


A.R.I. is committed to respond to the needs of a changing market. To do so, we strive for a high standard of quality, innovation and advanced
technological development as our principal objective.
At A.R.I., we focus on providing products with longevity and minimal maintenance. We offer a comprehensive warranty, excellent service, consulting
and training for each customer at the plant, in the field or at any installation site, as necessary.

Air Valves
The A.R.I. line of automatic air release valves and the automatic air release components of A.R.I. combination air valves are based on the rolling seal
technology. The A.R.I. patented sealing mechanism replaces traditional configurations that incorporate a ball float closing against a round orifice.
While the system is under pressure the A.R.I. rolling seal mechanism, with its aerodynamically-designed float, releases air in large quantities, often
greater than in traditional valves. They also provide for the soft dynamic closure of the valve. This concept of a rolling seal mechanism enabled A.R.I.
to develop small, lightweight, cost effective air valves.
The self-cleaning feature of the rolling seal mechanism greatly reduces the possibility of clogging, leaking and the adhesion of suspended particles to
the rolling seal surface.
The valve body and interior components are made of corrosion-resistant materials. This ensures years of corrosion-free and maintenance-free
operation, even under extreme environmental conditions.
The A.R.I. line of products also includes a wide variety of air & vacuum and combination air valves. They are made of the same quality materials as
the automatic air release valves and provide the same level of quality and assurances.
These valves are offered in dimensions of 1/2 to 1 (automatic air release valves) and 1" to 12"(air & vacuum and combination air valves). They
provide solutions for various applications in all industrial fields. These products are lightweight, have a compact profile and are offered at competitive
prices.

Air in Liquid Transmission System


The quantity of free air must be controlled in liquid transmission systems. The presence of air/gas bubbles and pockets can be beneficial or
detrimental to the transmission system under different conditions. The absence of air, such as exist under vacuum conditions, prevents suitable
protection for the transmission systems.

Damage caused by the presence of air in the system


1. Air blockage in the line causes unstable flow of the liquid and, in extreme circumstances, a total stoppage of flow.
2. High head losses, resulting in large energy losses.
3 The impact of surge, as a result of the presence of air in the system, can cause damage to pipes, accessories and connectors.
4. Erroneous readings of water meters and automatic metering valves.
5. Extensive damage to impeller systems in water meters, flow regulators, sprinklers and sprayers.
6. Pitting and increased corrosion in metal components of the systems.
7. Safety risks to operators increase due to the possibility of high energy bursts in locations where there are concentrations of compressed air.
EnC-intrWTR/SWG-11 7

Damage caused by the absence of air in the system


Vacuum enhanced problems and damages:
- Suction of mud and dirt through faulty connections, cracks in pipes and accessories, etc.
- Suction of seals and gaskets, inline fittings, and other internal accessories of pipes.
- Uncontrolled suction of injected chemicals into the system.
- Pipe or accessory collapse.
- In some cases, the absence of an air cushion can increase the damages of surge and slam phenomena.
INTRODUCTION
Using A.R.I Air Valves to Control Air and Prevent Damage
There are three principal types of air valves used in liquid transmission applications:
Air & Vacuum Valves
Automatic Air Release Valves
Combination (double orifice) Air Valves

Air & Vacuum Valves automatically discharge air at high flow rates during filling of the system and admit air at high flow rates during draining, at
water column separation, and in cases of down-surge in the system.
Air & vacuum valves are known also as: large orifice air valves, vacuum breakers, low-pressure air valves and air vacuum valves.
Automatic Air Release Valves release air entrapped in the system while under pressure. The air release flow rates of the automatic air release valves
are lower than those of the air & vacuum valves. They are also known as: air release valves and small orifice air valves.
Combination Air Valves include both air & vacuum and automatic air release components in one unit. They perform both functions:
- They discharge air at high flow rates during filling of the system and admit air at high flow rates at drainage or water column separation, AND
- They release entrapped air while the system is under pressure.
Combination air valves are also known as double orifice air valves.

Installation and Location


It is highly recommended that a basic review be made before selecting the appropriate air valves and determining their sizes and locations:
- The chemical composition of the liquid that passes through them.
- The possibility of extreme pressure changes such as up-surges and down-surges.
- Analysis using ARIavCAD software for efficient design of the system (software available from A.R.I).

Typical installation locations:


- In pump stations.
- At locations where pressure drops.
- At peaks along the line.
- At locations of large convex slope changes
- Along line segments without air valves.
- Near isolating valves on the line.
- On filter setups.
- Before flow meters and automatic devices.
- At line ends.
INTRODUCTION
Recommendations for the Determination of the Required Diameter of Air &
Vacuum and Combination Air Valves
To determine the diameter of air valve required, the first essential step is to define the task that the air valve must perform and the level of protection
that the valve must provide.
The principle tasks of an air valve are:
1 - The controlled or free discharge of air during the line filling stage:
A. Controlled discharge The air valve diameter is determined in order to limit flow / filling speed.
B. Free discharge The air valve is used to discharge air during line filling, but is not used to limit flow / filling speed.
2- Intake of air to prevent negative pressure (vacuum), down-surge and/or cavitation:
A. When the line is drained through drainage valves with a defined location and size.
B. When the line bursts at predefined or not defined points along its length; it's bursting up to a pre-determined size of burst in the pipe and the free
drainage of water out of the line through the burst.
C. When there is water column separation consequential to extreme changes in the regimen of water flow through the pipe.
The required air flow rate and the air valve diameter are determined in accordance with the objective sought when installing the air valve
and as explained below:
- If the purpose of the air valve is only to limit filling speed the required air release speed is equal to the filling rate (for the system), which is a
function of the required filling rate.
- If the purpose of the air valve is to protect the system in the event of an burst, which splits the pipe across its entire cross section, with
consequential free flowing drainage of the line, the accepted method is to determine the required rate of air intake according to a burst analysis
based on one of the flow equations, such as the Hazen Williams equation:

Burst Analysis
The burst analysis is based on the Hazen Williams Equation:

Q B =KC H W D 2 . 63 ( h f / L a c t ) 0 .5 4 a nd L a c t = ( h f 2 +L hp 2 ) 0 .5
Where, in our case:

Q B = Air intake flow rate requirement for vacuum protection at full diameter pipe burst m /sec 3

K = Unit constant = 0.278 for metric units


C H W = Hazen Williams Coefficient for the pipen- no units
D = Diameter of pipe m
h f = Elevation change between the two ends of the pipe segment being analyzed m
L a c t = Actual length of the pipe segment (not its horizontal projection)- m
L h p = Length of the horizontal projection of the pipe segment - m

Given that the results of this analysis are often extreme, the common practice is to supply air at a percentage of the calculated results.
EnC-intrWTR/SWG-11 9

A.R.I. does not recommend using the Burst Equation.


- If the purpose of the air valve is to protect the system during drainage through a defined drainage valve or at pipe rupture, it is recommended to
use the drainage and rupture analysis based on the orifice equation.
INTRODUCTION
Drainage and Rupture Analyses
Air intake flow rate requirement at drainage through a drain valve or a rupture is:

1. Q d = C d ( D d 2 / 4 ) ( 2 g h) 0 .5
For drains or ruptures whose equivalent diameters are greater than 30% of the pipe diameter:

2. Q d = MC d ( D d 2 / 4 ) ( 2 g h ) 0 .5 a nd M = {1/ [1-(D d / D p ) 4 ]}0.5


Where:

Qd = Air intake flow rate requirement m2/sec

Cd = Orifice coefficient 0.6 is a common default value

Dd = Drain valve or rupture equivalent diameter - m

g = Gravitational acceleration 9.81 m/sec2

h = Elevation difference between the air valve and the drain valve or rupture m

M = Correction factor
Dp = Diameter of the pipe m

Here, the initial Qd was calculated with no losses. After the initial calculation of Qd , we calculate the Hazen Williams friction head loss, hf due to
this initial Qd:

3. h f = Q d 1. 852 L a ct / ( K 1 .8 5 2 C d 1 .8 5 2 D d 4 .8 7 ) and
L ac t = ( h 1 2 + L h p1 2 ) 0 .5 + ( h 2 2 + L h p2 2 ) 0.5 + (h n 2 +L hp n 2 ) 0.5

Where:

hf = Hazen Williams friction head loss due to the initial Qd - m

K = unit constant = 0.278 for metric units

L ac t = Actual total pipe length between the air valve and the drain or rupture m

h 1 , h 2 , h n = Elevation change of each of the pipe segments between the air valve and the drain or rupture - m

L h p 1 , L h p 2 , L hpn = Length of the horizontal projection of each of the pipe segments between the air valve and the drain or rupture - m

Now, we calculate the new h by subtracting hf from the initial h:

4. N e w h = h - h f

Use this New h in either equation 1 or equation 2 above (depending on the size of the drain valve or rupture, relative to the pipe diameter),

and calculate the final Q .


d

Given that the air valve diameter required must be calculated separately for each separate air point in the system, the scope of the calculation work
required is very considerable.
To solve this problem, A.R.I. has developed a unique program ARIavCAD. The ARIavCAD program determines the diameter and the location
for each air valve and selects from the range of valves manufactured by A.R.I., the most appropriate air valve for installation at each point. Use of
the ARIavCAD program is highly recommended. For further details, please contact the A.R.I. Service Department.
INTRODUCTION

Check Valves
One-way or check valves are liquid direction devices that allow one-directional flow in the pipeline.

Check valves have various uses such as:


- Controlling directions of flow of liquid in systems in which there are different sources of supply.
- Preventing reverse flow into pumps when pump operation stops.
- Maintaining down-stream pipe pressure in case of a pressure drop at the supply source.
- Preventing drainage from high to low areas.

There are various types of check valves:


- Swing-type check valves, check valves with top covers, check valves with a tilting disc, dual-leaf check valves, wafer type check valves, spring-loaded
check valves, etc.
All one-directional valves are built from a basic combination of a body (straight or angular) connected to piping and to a one-way sealing mechanism.
The valves are distinguished from one another by the structure of the body and the various sealing mechanisms.
The purpose of the various types of check valves is to provide solutions and adaptations for various applications.
The R&D, engineering and manufacturing divisions of A.R.I. worked together to develop a basket of check valves for a variety of applications. They
meet the needs of designers, installers, users and maintenance personnel.
A.R.I. check valves are adapted for industry, wastewater, desalination, hot water, contaminated water, seawater, agricultural and gardening
applications, potable water, water treatment systems, municipal lines and oil installations on offshore platforms.

Top-cover type check valves are designed to contend with aggressive


environments and solids-laden liquid:
1. The body and cover are cast from a variety of corrosion-resistant materials which cover a wide range of chemicals.
2. The body has a barrel-shaped structure that allows unrestricted flow.
3. A sealing mechanism incorporates a disc that opens fully even under low flow rates and swings up and out of the flow path (full flow). These two
properties:
- enable for the flow of solids-laden liquids without blockage or stagnation, AND
- ensure particularly low head losses (in the range of only a few centimeters), resulting in large energy savings.
4. The top cover provides access for inspection and maintenance without the need for dismantling the valve from the pipeline.
5. The sealing seat assembly is accessible for replacement without dismantling the valve from the line.
6. The internal configuration inhibits cavitation.
7. The shaft that hinges the disc extends from the body of the valve. It serves for mounting counter weights which regulate the closing time of the
disc, and greatly reduce the effects of slam and surge.
8. The enhanced bearing assembly is unique and the shaft sealing is reliable and long-lasting.
9. The hinged arm is connected to the disc by two pins that prevent premature wear of the sealing assembly.
10. A variety of structural materials are used in the sealing mechanism, the disc, and the sealing seat.
11. Interior and exterior coatings are resistant to corrosion, chemicals and to UV.

Typical installation locations:


- In pumping stations for raw wastewater.
- In pumping stations for untreated water.
- In desalination installations.
- In chemical process piping systems to regulate the direction of flow.
- Dividing the pressure between the two ends of long pipe segments in which there are large differences in elevation between the ends.

Non-Slam Disc
The built- in throttling device on the Non-Slam disc of the D-060
HF NS Combination Air Valves will allow for the graduated opening
and closing of the disc orifice.

Advantages:
1. The orifice size of the disc can be adjusted to control and throttle
the discharge of air during pipeline filling and during the return of
the water column after separation.
2. The controlled discharge of air will reduce surge effects and
provide for a silent closure of the air valve.
3. The closure of the orifice can be determined by running a surge
analysis or by a decision taken in the field.
4. The orifice throttling device allows for a wide range of options
from 100% open, partially open, partially closed to 100% closed.

D-070-VB
Water Supply

PN 16

Vacuum Breaker Valve


Description
The D-070 VB Dynamic Vacuum Breaker is a unique air valve,
operating without a float and utilizing the rolling diaphragm
principle. When vacuum (down-surge) occurs, the dynamic vacuum
breaker reacts quickly to admit large volumes of air into the water
system, thus impeding down-surges and, consequently, all pressure
surges in the line.
The D-070 VB valve allows for air intake only, without discharging
air into the atmosphere.
The valve is normally closed when the line is not operating, thus
preventing the infiltration of debris and insects into the water
system.

Applications
- Pumping stations, deep wells, and distribution lines.
- Systems prone to slam and local and system surges.
- Sites that require a combination of means to reduce water hammer
or surges.
- Sites that require an vacuum breaker with a low profile due to lack
of space.

Operation
With a reduction in line pressure, during drainage, shut-off or water
column separation, the pressure in the valve is reduced and is lower
then the outside atmospheric pressure. The vacuum created will
cause the rolling diaphragm sealing assembly to rise up into its open
position, opening the lower chamber large orifice and allowing the
intake of air from the atmosphere into the system.

Main Features
- Working pressure range: 0.2 - 16 bar.
- Testing pressure: 25 bar.
- Maximum working temperature: 60 C.
- Maximum intermittent temperature: 90 C.
- Internal components are corrosion-resistant.
EnC-D070VBWTR-11 99

- Prevents slam and reduces water surges in the air valve and the
pipeline.
- Prevents the intrusion of debris and contaminants into the system.
- Valve is lightweight and small for easy installation; its operation

- Valve coating: fusion bonded epoxy coating according to the

The built- in throttling device on the Non-Slam disc of the D-060 HF
NS Combination Air Valves will allow for the graduated opening and
closing of the disc orifice.

Advantages:
1. The orifice size of the disc can be adjusted to control and throttle
the discharge of air during pipeline filling and during the return of the
water column after separation.
2. The controlled discharge of air will reduce surge effects and provide
for a silent closure of the air valve.
3 .The closure of the orifice can be determined by running a surge
analysis or by a decision taken in the field.
4. The orifice throttling device allows for a wide range of options from
100% open, partially open, partially closed to 100% closed.

UFR
How Does The UFR Work:
1. UFR closed
When pressure on both sides of the UFR is equal, the spring
pushes the plunger to the closed position.

2. UFR starts opening


Leakage causes the downstream pressure to decrease - and the
plunger moves forward, pulling the rubber seal with it.

3. UFR opens
The plunger seal disengages instantaneously and the water batch
moves quickly forward and activates the water meter.

4. UFR closes again


When pressure on both sides of the UFR is equal the spring
pushes the plunger back to the "closed" position.

Two-directional discharge outlet cover
The D-023 combination air valve for wastewater is available with an
optional stainless steel two-directional discharge outlet cover.
One outlet is always open for air discharge while the other is closed
with a plug. Both outlets have a 3 female thread.
With this option, air can be discharged either in a horizontal or
vertical direction, depending on the installation. This option allows
for easy vertical air discharge from valves installed in manholes.
This cover is standard on all D-023 SB underground air valves and
is optional for all D-023 air valves, both stainless steel and epoxy
coated.

Combination Air Valve for Wastewater - Non Slam
The D-023 Combination Wastewater Non Slam accessory will
dampen surge and prevent slam. The non slam accessory provides
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, the large volumes of air are exhausted
slowly through the smaller orifice of the non-slam acessory. 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.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Control and Effect of Air in Irrigation Systems


Air in an irrigation system must be controlled because the presence of air bubbles and air pockets, or their absence (vacuum), can cause problems and damage
to the system.

Problems and Damage Caused by the Presence of Air Pockets and Air Bubbles in Water Pipelines
1. Uneven flow through the pipe sometimes even stopping water flow altogether.
2. High losses of water head and consequently, energy losses.
3. Water hammer damage to the pipes, accessories and connectors.
4. False readings of water meters and automatic metering devices (and consequent payment for water not supplied, virtual use of water above licensed
pumping limits, under utilization of available water supplies, inadequate supply of water to crops because plants receive less water than the volume measured
by the hydrometer or water meter).
5. Inadequate supply of water to agricultural crops caused by throttling of flows and accumulated pressure losses at system ends.
6. Extensive damage to impeller systems in water meters, hydrometers, sprinklers and sprayers.
7. Corrosion damage.
8. Physical risk - when large volumes of air are released at high velocity.

The Problems Exacerbated by the Presence of a Vacuum


1. Mud and dirt are sucked into the system through drippers.
2. Seals, drippers and other accessories are sucked into the main distribution lines.
3. Uncontrolled entry of chemicals and fertilizers injected into agricultural and landscape irrigation systems.
4. Vacuum-induced collapse of pipes and accessories (sub-atmospheric pressures).
5. Increased risk of surge and slam conditions during the release of air pockets.
6. Cavitation damages..

Control of Air in Irrigation Systems Using A.R.I. Air Valves


There are three main types of air valves installed in irrigation systems: air & vacuum, automatic air release and combination (double) valves.
Air & Vacuum valves discharge large quantities of air from non-pressurized pipes and are used mainly when filling a line. These valves also make it possible
to admit large quantities of air when lines are drained and at water column separation. Air & Vacuum valves are also known as: kinetic valves; large orifice
air valves, vacuum breakers, low-pressure air valves and air-relief valves.

Automatic air release valves continuously release relatively small quantities of air from a pressurized line. The automatic air valve is also known as an: air
release valve; small orifice air valve and as a pressure air valve.

Combination air valves fulfill the tasks required of both types of valve air & vacuum and automatic. In other words they discharge or admit large
volumes of air when filling or emptying a system and continuously release small volumes air when the line is pressurized.
Combination air valves are also known as double orifice air valves.

The Range of Advanced Air Valves from A.R.I. Flow Control Accessories
A.R.I. is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of air valves. A.R.I. engineers have developed a range of advanced composite material air valves, specially
designed for use in agricultural and landscaping applications.
Technologically, the product range is based on the A.R.I. patented rolling seal mechanism, which replaces the old system that uses the valve float to seal air
valve orifices. The rolling seal mechanism and the aerodynamically designed float, in this line of air valves, provide much greater efficiency (larger orifices)
and have better resilience to withstand dynamic valve closure.
The new sealing mechanism enabled the development of small, lightweight air valves with a superior cost / benefit ratio. The width of the SG-10 automatic
air valve from A.R.I. is a mere 87 millimeters; it stands no more than 140 mm high and weighs just 330 grams. Despite its small dimensions, the area of air
orifice in this valve reaches 12 mm, which permits the release of 152 cubic meters of air per hour and can withstand pressures of up to 10 bar.
The valve's integral self-cleaning mechanism prevents blockages, leaks and particles from sticking to the sealing faces.
EnC-RCMAGR-11 13

The DG-10 model valve is just 180 mm wide, (including the protruding drainage funnel) 209 mm tall and weighs only 1.1 kg. With 12mm of automatic
orifice area and 804 mm of kinetic orifice area, intake and release of air is very efficient even more efficient than much larger and much heavier air valves,
which are overwhelmed and slam closed at lower differential pressures. The valve's integral self-cleaning mechanism prevents blockages and leaks and
particles do not stick to the sealing faces.

The R&D team at A.R.I has also developed the AV-010 air & vacuum valve to provide solutions for agricultural and landscaping irrigation systems. The
product is manufactured from composite materials and is available in 3, 2, 1 and 3/4 sizes. It is lightweight, compact and very competitively priced.
RECOMMENDATIONS

Calculating the Number of Valves Required for Installation


at Different Points in a System
Most irrigation systems on individual farms have relatively uncomplicated conditions and decisions can be based on the following table:

Model Suitability W. Pressure Diameter Air Volume m3/h


DT-040 Landscaping 10 Bar 1/2, 3/4 24
DG-10 Agriculture 10 Bar 3/4, 1 47

+ Landscaping
AV-010 Agriculture 10 Bar 2 190
+ Landscaping
AV-010 Agriculture 10 Bar 3 390

To calculate the number of DG-10 (Barak) air valves required in an irrigation system, two criteria must be considered:
- The need to protect against vacuum damage (achieved by admitting air into the system)
- The need to discharge air from the system when it is filled with water

Air discharge requirements are usually lower than the air intake requirements for a line because the rates at which lines can be filled are generally
lower. Diagram Number 1 can be used to establish air discharge requirements during line filling. In Diagram Number 1, it can be seen that one
DG-10 valve is enough for pipes with a diameter of up to 8 (and sometimes up to 10).
This diagram is based on the release of air with a differential pressure of 0.4 bar.

The number of 2 DG-10 air valves required during the filling


of a line according to line filling rate (with a pressure differential
of 0.4 Bar) and pipe diameter.

Vacuum protection demands are usually higher, and this is particularly true when the line has acute angles of ascent and descent and / or when the
pipe has a large diameter. Diagram Number 2 is based on the Hazen Williams friction loss equation; a Hazen Williams coefficient of 110 and a
negative pressure differential of 0.4 bar.

of 0.4 Bar)
RECOMMENDATIONS
Critical Velocity Required for Transporting Air Bubbles

At the point where the rate of water flow drops below the critical velocity for air movement, air valves should be located at these critical points.
Installation of air valves is particularly important along long horizontal sections of line because flow rates are too low to carry air pockets and bubbles
to the downstream air valves. Installation of air valves is also important on long descending sections of pipe in which the flow of water must overcome
the opposing flow of air (flowing naturally to the high spots). See: Graphs describing critical speeds.

Calculating the Number of AV-010 Air & Vacuum Valves to be Installed in a Sub-surface Dripper
System

An AV-010 air & vacuum valve, used to prevent vacuum conditions as low as a negative pressure of 1 m, must be installed in every sub-surface drip
system to prevent suction of dirt into the drippers and subsequent blockages.
An AV-010 air & vacuum valve must also be used to prevent the formation of a vacuum in dripper system laterals and thereby prevent their collapse.
If the dripper-irrigated field is relatively flat and has no significant topographical changes, planning of air valve location will be based on the systems
working pressures and flow.
If the dripper-irrigated field contains substantial topographic changes, calculation of the AV-010 air & vacuum valve numbers and locations will be
based on the maximum drainage flow or on the flow of fluids during a burst the size of the pipe diameter, or the larger of the two

SG-10-V
Characteristics of Water Systems Used in
Agriculture and Landscaping:
- High frequency changes in flow characteristics.
- Water treatment in the field (filtration).
DG-70
- Chemicals and fertilizers are injected into the irrigation system.
- Often necessary to use fragile and often complex equipment and
instrumentation.
- Large differences in the characteristics and materials used in pipes,
connectors and accessories.

Installation at Pumps
It is recommended to install a DG-70 dynamic air valve directly
after the pump and before the pumps check valve. Water pumped
from an independent supply such as a well, stream or reservoir
requires the intake of air into the pump and suction pipes. This air
will continue to disperse in the system during pump operation.
Mode of Operation: When the pump begins operating, large
NR-040 volumes of air are discharged through the air & vacuum orifice of
the air valve. The water flow raises the float, closes the orifice and
opens the check valve. When the pump is shut down or ceases
to operate for any other reason, air, admitted through the air &
vacuum orifice, acts as a vacuum breaker. It protects the pump,
connectors, accessories and seals from damage caused by sub-
atmospheric (negative) pressure.
The small automatic air release orifice continues to release air while
the pump is working and the line is pressurized. At its location
before the check valve, it protects the sealing face of the check valve
from cavitation damage caused by the presence of small air bubbles
DG-10 1 in the water.
It is recommended to install a SG-10 air valve on the pump to
provide pump protection.
It is recommended to install a DG-70 air valve after the pump check
valve when the pipeline, upstream of this point, remains level or
drops below ground level. This air valve will allow for the intake
of air (at water column separation) when the pump is shut down
and the check valve closes. It also will discharge air when the water
column returns.

Installation in Locations with Changing


Pressures
It is recommended to install a 1 DG-10 air valve in areas with
fluctuating pressure pressure regulation valves, pressure release
valves and at changes in pipe diameter. These are the areas where
air pockets form and might migrate into the line. As the pipe is
filled, these areas can become problematic if not provided with
an adequate air release system. If pressure fluctuations are not
too extreme, the SG-10 air valve will be sufficient when installed
DG-10 2 downstream and close to these sensitive areas (close to an accessory
or disturbance).
EnC-INSTAGR-11

Installation at the Highest Points in a Line


It is recommended to install a DG-10 air valve at all the highest points
in each line where flow velocities drop below the critical velocity for
air movement (See: Graphs section below).
The air & vacuum component, installed at line high-points, discharges
air as the line is filled and admits air during line drainage, regardless
of whether the process is controlled or not (pipe burst or collapse).
The automatic air release component releases air accumulating at
high points when the line is pressurized during regular operations.
Where the topography is relatively flat, the line has shallow slopes
and the high points are relatively close, then the SG-10 automatic air
release valve can replace the DG-10 valves at some of the high points.
INSTALLATION GUIDE

DG-10 2 Installation on Long Lines


On long lines, it is recommended to install DG-10 or SG-10 valves
every 500 meters to 800 meters. It is also recommended to install
DG-10 valves on both sides of long sections of horizontal pipe.

Installation Close to a Main Line Valve


DG-10 2 When the line is pressurized and an isolating valve is closed, it is
recommended to install an air valve before the isolating valve in order
to release air. Installation of the air valve will protect the valve plate
against cavitation damage caused by small air bubbles. During line
fill, if a valve at the end of the line is closed, slowing down the filling
process, it is recommended to install an air valve before the isolating
valve on lines with large diameters and high flow rates.
The installation of a DG-10 air valve after an isolating valve will also
protect the line from negative pressure (vacuum) conditions caused
when the valve is closed suddenly and assist in controlling the filling
process when the isolating valve is open.

DG-10 2 Installation Where a Line Crosses Under a


Road or Ditch
It is recommended to install a DG-10 air valve wherever a large
diameter pipe, with sharp upward or downward angle changes,
crosses under a road or ditch. When the crossing point is wide and/or
deep, install the air valves at the uppermost point of the angle change
on both sides of the road. If the crossing point is short and shallow,
it is sometimes possible to install one DG-10 valve on the uppermost
point of angle change on the downstream side of the crossing point.

Installation Before Water Meters and


Automatic Regulators
It is recommended to install a DG-10 air valve on the upstream side
DG-10 1 of a flow meter and automatic flow regulator. Given that the water
flow regulator is a special type of isolating valve, it is recommended to
also install another DG-10 air valve on the downstream side after the
regulator.
Air can flow at velocities up to 29 times faster than water flow. The
fast-moving flow of air through a water meter or through the unit
that measures flow in the automatic regulator will spin the impeller,
used to measure flow, at very high velocities These instruments, which
cannot differentiate between water and air, will register very high flow
volumes that do not, in fact, exist. Another problem created under such
conditions is the inadequate supply of irrigation water to the fields
caused by these air-related inaccurately recorded high flow rates.
Water both cools and lubricates as it turns the impellers inside the
measuring equipment. Air moving through the measuring unit at
high speed causes the impeller to overheat and prevents water-cooling,
resulting in high temperature damage that can even melt the plastic
impeller. Installation of an air valve before the measuring equipment
will protect the meter from heat damage and false readings.
INSTALLATION GUIDE
AV-010 2 Installation at the Main Line Control System
It is recommended to install a combination DG-10 air valve directly
DG-10 2
on the vertical pipe at the main line control system. This will ensure
control of air in the water supply and protection for the other
accessories in the control system and protection for the water meters
further downstream.
Install an AV-010 Guardian model air valve after the tap on the
lateral line feeding the dripper lines.

Installation on Filters
It is recommended to install a DG-70 air valve on sand media filters
and a DG-70 air valve on screen and disc filters.
Filtering efficiency - air flowing through an automatic back flush
filter system disrupts the filters hydraulic functioning, creating
differential pressures in the filter. Consequently, the filter system
DG-70 flushes frequently, wasting water and lowering system efficiency.

If the lateral line is long, install a number of Guardian valves along
the line, with emphasis on the highest points in the field and along
the line. Guardian valves are required to prevent negative pressure
(vacuum) in the line which can cause the drippers to suck up mud
and dirt when flow stops.
