When you first start up your hydronic heating or cooling system, you’ll find that many air bubbles are large enough to rise to the top on their own.
There is an automatic air vent that will quickly gather and release these bubbles. You won’t have to manually bleed hard-to-reach areas, such as the tops of risers, tanks, unit heaters, and horizontal lines near the ceiling. The result? Residential, commercial and, yes, even industrial systems start up in much less time with no aggravation. Known for its reliability, this unique automatic air vent can be found in millions of installations around the world. The name: Spirotop’s low profile and high-compression valve combine to give you a leak-resistant, high point vent that fits just about anywhere. Moreover, Spirotop resists dirt particles and sudden pressure shocks, which can cause ordinary vents to leak. When filling or draining a system, venting high points, or eliminating air locks, the Spirotop automatic air vent is the only choice for those who want reliable, problem-free results every time. Try a Spirotop. We think you’ll find it’s much more than an air vent. It’s a problem solver!
