Comments about 1-1/2" Cast Iron Vortech Air Separator:
I have a 1940's vintage radiant system in the ceiling of the first floor. I have never been able to get out all the air no matter how many "tin can" style bleeders I added until I installed this unit. Not a single sound from the system and the circulator is quieter than it has ever been. Should have done this years ago.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Air Separator
from Buffalo, NY
Comments about 1" Cast Iron Vortech Air Separator:
Installed this unit with an expansion tank below. After purging all the zones, I fired up the system and could hear some air still left within the zones "whooshing" around the pipes/elements and while sitting there nex to the air seperator you could pin-point where the air was and hear it travel through each zone. Once the air got to the Taco Air Separator the hy-vent on top began to work, small "hiss" noises indicated that indeed it was removing the air from within the system. It took about 10min to fully remove all the air from two zones (1st floor and 2nd floor). Yes ALL the air was gone, no more noise, no more 'wooshing' or 'guggling' within the lines. The entire system was pretty noisy for years and after many, many purges I thought it was just as good as its gonna be. Not true, this Air Separator was the perfect solution! Great part, easy to install, easy to work with. Seems very strong/study and should last for years and years!Very happy with purchase from Supplyhouse, during the order I found the same part for a buck less and they price matched it, great service from Supplyhouse!
No More Banging!

Comments about 1-1/4" Cast Iron Vortech Air Separator:
We bought our house 4 years ago and it is the first time we had hot water heat. Every fall, winter and spring, we would know every time the heat kicked in by the banging in the system. An HVAC person bled the air in the system and that helped a little bit. After researching the Supply House web-site, I decided to buy this unit. What a pleasant surprise... no more banging pipes. Supply House was quick to process and ship the order so I could have it in time for winter. I will definitely do business with Supply House again.
Seems to work well.
I used this air separator on a new install, I filled my boiler and started circulating water and I could hear it releasing a lot of air very quickly. Fells and looks like it is built very well.

Should have installed this one to start
By Tool man Tim
from Spokane, WA
I replaced my failed Bell $ Gossett air eliminator with this one and have been impressed with how well is functions. The B&G would leak water out of the vent and this one is dry as a bone. It quieted my hydronic heating system so much it is hard to tell it is working.
I would buy this product again
from Roanoke Va
Great product!!! My boiler has been noisy for several years due to air in the system. The heating system was bled many times without success. I have even talked to plumbers who could not resolve this problem. After installing this product the sytem has been completely quiet. I highly recommend this product.

Love the fact that there is no issues with length of pipe needed in between unit and circulator, for those of us who have limited space issues. Love that they come with the hy-vent installed, it is a extremely effective in removing unwanted air.
oops I ordered the wrong item
from Roanoke, VA
Comments about 3/4" Cast Iron Vortech Air Separator:
After receiving this unit I realized that my heating system needed the 1.25" unit and not the .75". I have installed the larger unit and it works great. I would highly recommend this unit for anyone having air problems in their heating system.
The vortech air speparator effectively removes air from the hydronic system. The included taco hy-vent is made of heavy gauge brass, has a large valve, and can easily be disassembled for maintenance. When I first installed this unit and recharged the system, I could hear the valve hissing as it removed air. The spirotherm air eliminator may be a little better design, but this vortech unit does very well for the price, and it performs much better than a traditional air scoop.
Excellent air eliminator
from Wesort ma.
