Combination Strainer / Air Eliminator
Air Eliminators and Combination Air Eliminator Strainers are designed to provide separation, elimination and prevention of air in piping systems for a
variety of installations and conditions.
Positive displacement and turbine meters, being volumetric measuring devices, cannot differentiate between liquid, air and vapour. Although the air
content, in most instances, is small when compared with the product, it will contribute to measurable error.
Large amounts of free air or vapour entrapped in a piping system, not only compromises meter accuracy but can lead to over-speeding of the measuring
unit, creating excessive wear or possible unit failure. To ensure accurate liquid measurement, it is necessary to remove all vapour and free all entrained
air from the system prior to entry into the measuring unit.
Over and above the standard Brodie version of Strainer / Air Eliminator, Soliflo also manufactures both a 3” and 4” version to suit requirements in
accordance with SANS 347 regulations.
