Description

The D-020 SB is a complete product package that combines the reliable and efficient properties of the A.R.I. D-020 combination air valve for wastewater with the added feature of a sub-surface valve that can be buried below ground. A specially designed horizontal sliding disc valve - situated at the base of the D-020 SB assembly - allows for the air valve disconnection and maintenance from ground level. This shut-off valve is equipped with a safety mechanism enabling disconnection and removal of the D-020 air valve from its sub-surface housing, even when the system is under pressure. Since service and maintenance operations of the unit are performed entirely from the surface, there is no need for safety considerations associated with confined space entry.
