Spirovent Jr series air eliminators made by Spirotherm include horizontal and vertical models with a complete range of sizes in 1/2" through 1-1/2" with sweat or threaded piping connections. They effectively eliminate nearly 100% of air from the water and help to maximize efficiency of the heating system, while reducing maintenance and operating costs. Brass body construction, rated 150 psi at 270°F. Made in the USA.
How it works
Lower portion of the Spirovent air eliminator’s body consists of a main chamber with piping inlet/outlet, which contains the Spirotube coalescing medium. Here, the water flow slows down, allowing the microscopic air bubbles coalesce and become trapped by the Spirotube. In this low-turbulence area, the bubbles rise freely to the top of the eliminator, where the air vent is located.
Upper portion contains a specially designed float-type air vent. As air accumulates at the top of this chamber, it pushes down the water level and the float, which, in turn, opens the air valve until most of the air is vented. Then the process repeats again.
Bottom of the air eliminator has a 1/2" FNPT outlet, which is used for connection of the standard diaphragm type expansion tank. This outlet is also the best location for the fresh water feeder line, since the oxygen concentration in such water is highest and is easiest to eliminate when entering directly into the Spirovent.

Why don't we show the price?
While PexUniverse.com reserves the legal right set its own product pricing, some
manufacturers require internet retailers to display a price at or above
manufacturer's established MAP ("Minimum Advertised Price").
Since our price for this product is lower then MAP, the manufacturer does not allow
us to display our lowest price until you place the product in the shopping cart.
This allows us to continue offering our lowest prices while staying consistent with
product manufacturer's policy.
This process does not require you to purchase the product - it can be easily
removed from shopping cart if needed.
We understand that this is an inconvenience and are continually working with
manufacturers to educate them on how MAP affects our customers.
