Why Guardian Air Vents

  • Corrosion-resistant reinforced UV protected composite materials – no metal parts to rust or corrode.
  • Ensures vent closure as water fills the system and ensures maximum protection of your irrigation system with proper sizing and placement
  • Optional Shrader Valve is ideal for measuring local line pressure.

Product Advantages

  • Ensures maximum protection of irrigation system with proper sizing and placement.
  • Ensures vent closure as water fills the system, remains open when air pressure reaches the following:
    • - 5 psi for ¾ and 1” Guardian
    • - 10 psi for 2” Guardian
    • - 8 psi for 3” Guardian
  • Large capacity vents dampen water hammer preventing pipes and fittings from cracking or bursting.
  • Made of corrosion-resistant reinforced UV protected composite materials - no metal parts to rust or corrode, no need for spare parts.
  • Guardian Air Vent with Shrader Valve is ideal for measuring local line pressure.

Applications

  • Commonly used downstream of valves, primarily at manifolds, to break vacuum caused by system draining.
  • On sloping terrain to prevent collapsing of pipes caused by vacuum when pipe networks drain. 
  • Upstream of valves for air discharge during system start-up.

Specifications

  • Maximum operating pressures:
    • - ¾” Guardian: 150 psi
    • - 1” Guardian: 150 psi
    • - 2” & 3” Guardian: 150 psi
