APCO AVV Air/Vacuum Valves

APCO AVV air/vacuum valves are designed to let the air in or out of the pipeline through a large venting orifice. They are used to exhaust large quantities of air from a pipeline when it is being filled and remain closed until the pipeline needs to be drained. The AVV valve opens immediately when the liquid begins to drain to prevent vacuum from occurring and damaging the pipeline.
