SARCO Air Vents
The removal of air from a steam system is essential for efficient operation. Air can lower the steam temperature, insulate the heat transfer surfaces, and react to form extremely corrosive acids. Spirax Sarco Thermostatic Air Vents, when installed at points where air collects, will quickly, efficiently, and economically purge the steam system. They discharge air at full bore on startup and open during normal operation whenever air collects, regardless of the steam pressure.
