          Great replacement for older style

                Comments about Industrial Automatic Air Vent:

                We needed to replace our air vents on our Bryan boilers. We bought the 6 pack to save a few $$. After starting to replace them, we noticed we needed more than we were expecting. We ordered another 6 pack. These are great and they are working just the way a Honeywell product should! I would recommend these for boilers as well as our older York Air cooled chillers use these as well.

                      This vent is my perferred in its size. I have now used it for 10+ years. It is easy to install and easier to service. since it can be isolated from the system and serviced without having any other isolation valve (it is self-isolating). It is well made and relatively reliable.

                            Leaks around the section where the unit rotates.
                            Good idea, poor function.

                                              I use the auto air vent in line with my water air conditioner. This water a/c is an old system which requires lots of tlc. The auto air vent keeps all the water lines at the required/optimal pressure. The most important part? That I found you through the internet! Thank God you guys are around to help old people like me! Thank you!

                                                        Yes, it is.
                                                        I installed a tank less on-demand water heater in my home. Unfortunately, the bathrooms are 60 feet distant from the heater, so it took 4 or 5 minutes every morning to get hot water (which was very wasteful).
                                                        To solve the problem, I installed a recirculation pump on a timer using a 1/2" Cu pipe bypass loop. But, it stopped working from time to time because air bubbles would accumulate in the recirc pump and it became ineffective. Once I installed this device at the HIGHEST POINT in the recirc loop, my troubles were over.
                                                        When I brought the system back on line, the device automatically expelled air and has been working flawlessly ever since.
                                                        Is this what you had in mind? Ask questions, and I'll try help.

                                                        That is correct, when water is not raising the float (closing the valve),
                                                        the valve is open to atmosphere and will allow air to flow into system.

Thats what I need.I need somthing to let air in my tank when I am pumping from it, and something to let air out of the same tank as its filling.

                                                        The manufacturer believes no, because you do not want to let air in the system from a vent.

                                                        But, there is a possibility that at the moment when the air vent is in the open position to release air and exactly at that time liquid is pumped out of the tank, then it is working as a vacuum breaker and the tank is filled also with air through the open air vent. So from that, we can say that it would not work reliably as a vacuum breaker.
