The American Wheatley AS Series air scoop operates on the premise that air will rise in the piping and then into air scoop, being directed to the top opening and out of the system through an air vent or to an expansion tank. Since proper operation of this type of air separator is also dependant on velocity, sizing this type of air separator is a function of proper flow rate. This type of air separation is best suited for residential and light commercial applications. American Wheatley AS Series air scoops are readily available from stock.
