Val-Matic stainless steel wastewater air valves

05 June 2018

Val-Matic’s Stainless Steel Wastewater Air Valves perform two important functions in a piping system: they maintain system design efficiency and provide system protection. Exhausting and admitting air keeps the system from restricted flow reducing pumping costs and reduces the potential for destructive surges and water hammer that can collapse a pipeline.

The seamless cast stainless steel body prevents corrosion and increases integrity, which is lightweight to facilitate installation. The valve design provides ease of maintenance and years of trouble-free operation in the harshest conditions. 

The cast stainless steel bodies are recommended for severe service where hydrogen sulphide or industrial chemicals produce accelerated corrosion in iron.
