APCO ARV Air Release Valves for Clean Water

APCO Air Release Valves (ARV) for clean water release air pockets that collect at each high point of a pipeline. Air buildup increases resistance by 10 to 15%, which makes the pump work harder and use more power. Installing an ARV valve each high point of the pipeline prevents excessive power consumption and associated costs.

Key Specifications

  • Available valve sizes: 1/2" to 6"
  • Body materials: cast iron or ductile iron
  • All APCO Air Release Valves are 100% Hydrostatically factory tested to ANSI/AWWA C512 standards
