D-26SB | Underground Air Valve System for Wastewater
A specifically designed gear box operated horizontal sliding disc valve – situated at the base of theD-26 SB assembly – allows for the air valve disconnection and maintenance from ground level. This shut-off valve is equipped with a safety mechanism enabling disconnection and removal of the D-26 air valve from its subsurface housing, even when the system is under pressure. Since service and maintenance operations of the unit are performed entirely from the surface, there is no need for safety considerations associated with confined space entry.
The D-26 Combination Air Valve combines an air & vacuum component and an air release component in a single body. The valve is specifically designed to operate with liquids carrying solid particles such as wastewater and effluents. The combination air valve discharges air during the filling or charging of the system, admits air into the system during drainage and at water column separation and releases accumulated air from the system while it is under pressure and operating. The valve’s unique design enables the separation of the liquid from the sealing mechanism and assures optimum working conditions.
