Brand: Bermad
Category: Air Valves, Wastewater Combination Air Valves
Size Range:



Inlets: 80-100mm - Flanged

Outlets: Female Threaded BSP

Product Description

BERMAD C80 is a high-quality combination air valve for a variety of sewage and wastewater networks and operating conditions. It evacuates air during pipeline filling, allows efficient release of air and gas pockets from pressurized pipes, and enables the intake of large volumes of air in the event of network draining. The elongated - body and lower float - is designed to reduce the contact between the fluid and the upper mechanism. With its advanced aerodynamic design, double orifice, and Surge Protection device (optional), this valve provides excellent protection against air and gas accumulation and vacuum formation with improved sealing under low-pressure conditions. C80 is designed to facilitate longer periods of operation without maintenance and it is easy to maintain.

Features & Benefits

  • Straight flow body with large diameter automatic orifice: Higher than usual airflow.
  • Aerodynamic, full-body kinetic shield: Prevents premature closing without disturbing air intake or discharge.
  • Dynamic Sealing: Prevents leakage under low-pressure conditions (0.8 psi; 0.05 bar).
  • Elongated body design: Prevents solids from making contact with the valve’s operating parts.
  • Compact, simple, and reliable structure with fully corrosion-resistant internal parts: Lower maintenance and increased life span.
  • Two service ports: Enabling back flushing and drainage.
  • Threaded Side outlet (3"; DN80) for connection of Surge Protection (SP) or Inflow prevention (IP) devices.
  • Certified to the Australian functional standard for air valves (SAI AS4883).
  • Factory approval and Quality Control: Performance and specification tested and measured with a specialized test bench, including vacuum pressure conditions.

Additional Features & Accessories

  • Surge Protection (code SP): Smoother operation, preventing damage to the valve and the system.
  • Inflow Prevention (code IP): Prevents intake of atmospheric air in cases where this could lead to damaged pumps, required re-priming, or disruption of siphon.
  • Drainage Valve (code Z).

Typical Applications

  • Pumping stations: Air relief and vacuum prevention.
  • Non-Clean Water Pipelines: Protection against air and gas accumulation and vacuum formation at elevations, slope change points, and road/river crossings.
  • Wastewater Treatment Plants: Air relief, protection against air and gas accumulation, and vacuum formation.
