The JAD2 is a high efficiency in-line air separator combined with a dirt trap, suitable for use on heating and chilled systems. In sealed heating systems free and dissolved air cause a number of problems. Micro-bubbles form on the pump suction as a direct result of localised pressure drop. This directly affects the liquid displacement of rotary pumps, reducing the flow capacity and therefore the efficiency of the system. The presence of micro-bubbles and dissolved gas can reduce the liquid displacement of a pump by 10 to 45%. Heat will also allow dissolved gasses to be drawn out of solution, following Henry’s law, placement of this equipment is important to guarantee effective operation. Corrosion is a process that is difficult, if not impossible; to stop once it has begun. Corroded metal becomes dislodged and becomes water borne debris. This debris, along with other contaminants in the system, clogs heat exchanger channels, fouls filters and causes excessive wear in circulating pumps. Effective removal of free air and debris is essential for increasing the operational life of the system as a whole.
