Val-Matic has developed the most comprehensive line of water and wastewater air valves available. Air Valves perform two important functions in a piping system: they maintain system design efficiency and provide system protection. The exhausting and admitting of air during start-up, shut-down and critical conditions such as power failures or line breaks will reduce the potential for destructive surges and water hammer normally associated with uncontrolled air or a vacuum condition within the piping system.
