In-Line Air Separators
The AC models of air separators deliver all the quality and performance you expect from Taco products. They are built to last with shell, heads and ANSI flanges with ASME constructed for 125, 150, 250 and 300psi working pressures all while providing outstanding performance in the field, up to a maximum operating temperature of 375˚F. The AC product line is available in standard sizes from 2” through 20” to meet the needs of a broad range of applications with custom unit sizes available up to 36” pipe size.

Features & Benefits
Air trapped in the system can produce major problems such as reduced heat transfer, loss of system e ciency, pipe corrosion, pump damage, increased energy consumption and irritating noise. The highly e cient Taco air separator clears the system of free air and reduces un-dissolved sediment to save money, energy and component wear. Unlike many competitive models each unit is designed, constructed and tested to the requirements of Section VIII, Division I of the ASME pressure vessel code as standard. Designed for use in hydronic heating or cooling systems, Taco’s compact, highly e cient air
separator provides air separation while minimizing space requirements. Taco o ers these separators with or without strainers, in standard pipe line sizes from 2” to 20” with custom unit sizes up to 36” pipe size. The wide range of separator models have been developed for applications with owrates up to 12,500 gpm. This wide range of models allows optimum selections with reduced pressure drop requirements. The standard product is designed for working pressures of 125 psi at 375˚F. Optional 150, 250 and 300 psi maximum pressure units, 375˚F maximum temperature units are also available. Taco air separators are manufactured from carbon steel listed in ASME Section II. Consult the factory for higher working
