Automatic Anti Vacuum Valves

Description Dimensions
A compact valve designed for use with hot water heaters to C

prevent a vacuum forming in installations where there is the

potential of the draw off rate exceeding the rate of flow to
the inlet, this can occur in properties with multiple outlets
below the base of the hot water heater.

The valve contains a check cartridge which under normal

conditions is held closed by the system pressure, when a
vacuum condition exists the suction will cause the check
cartridge to open and air to flow through equalising the
pressure within the hot water heater.
