Air relief valves designed to remove air from process lines
LKUV-2 air-relief valves are designed for use when removal of air from a process line without loss of product is a primary concern. These provide solid safety, efficiency and low cost of ownership for processing where hygiene standards are essential.
LKUV-2 is a reliable, automatic air-relief valve which is installed vertically on the top of a pipeline or container or before the inlet for a pump, where the removal of air is required. Example 1: Bleeding of a pipe line where an air pocket has formed on account of the installation.
In this case the valve is installed at the top of the pipe. Example 2: Bleeding of a pipe on the suction side of a pump. The suction side is bled automatically, before the pump starts, establishing a vacuum.
Binding of air to the product will be prevented, and hence subsequent cavitation. In this case the valve is installed in front of the pump, on top of the inlet pipe.
LKUV-2 is a double-seated valve with a freely moving plastic ball. The ball, which is lighter than water, closes against the upper or lower seat, depending on the pressure conditions.
The valve body is in two parts and assembled by means of a clamp. The lower valve body has a welding stub.
