Smith MeterTM Air Eliminator

Model AR
Specifications
Issue/Rev. 0.4 (3/06) Bulletin SS03032

The Smith MeterTM Model AR Air Eliminator separates and releases air or gas from petroleum or other liquids before they are passed through the meter. Complete elimination of air or gas is essential for accurate metering. Therefore, the Smith MeterTM Model AR Air Eliminator is a necessary part of a metering system when there is a possibility of air or gas being present in the flowstream.

Features
A wide selection of tanks and Air Eliminator Heads for proper application - See selection guide on Page 3 of this bulletin. Mechanical or Electrical Air Elimination Heads State-of-the-art electrical air elimination is now available. Code Conformance - Tanks may be supplied in conformance with the ASME Code Section VIII or other.

Model AR Air Eliminators

Applications
Air eliminators should always be installed as close to the meter as possible. The air release head should be piped to a convenient and safe point of discharge. Never pipe to the inside of a building. Provide the end of the air release pipe with a suitable flame arrestor. The air release line should have an open drip at the lowest point, discharging into a condensate drum or suitable container at atmospheric pressure. A valve may be placed in the air release line near the eliminator, provided the valve is always open except in emergency.

Principle of Operation
The air eliminators are horizontal pressure vessels with flanged end connections. The air eliminators perform by reducing fluid line velocity, allowing vapor bubbles to rise to the top of the vessel where they are expelled through the air release head.

Selection Guide
The selection of the correct size deaerator is of utmost importance and will result in the highest possible efficiency and metering accuracy. This selection must be based upon two factors: (1) the maximum flow rate, and (2) air and gas conditions. Air and gas conditions are divided into three categories as follows:

Dry pipe at supply end not over 40 pipe diameters long with length of at least 80 pipe diameters of liquid-filled pipe between the dry section and the air eliminator. The Smith DE Air Release Head is recommended for this service. See Bulletin SS03030.

Condition A (Minimum) Long exposed lines where temperature rise could cause vaporization. Possible suction leaks causing air to be drawn into the system. When valving from one tank to another introduces a section of dry pipe twenty pipe diameters or less in length provided there is at least seven times this length between the dry section and the air eliminator. Condition B (Average) Where it is possible for a gravity or pump system to run dry. Dry pipe directly before deaerator not over 60 pipe diameters long.

Condition C (Maximum) Dry pipe directly before deaerator over 60 pipe diameters long. Dry pipe at supply end not over 40 pipe diameters long but where wet pipe between dry section and air eliminator has several elbows or other fittings which would cause turbulence in the line. Same condition as B but handling fluid more viscous than gasoline. Any conditions where extreme air entrainment occurs, long dry lines, extreme turbulence, or where lines are blown dry by compressed air. The Smith DE Air Release Head is recommended for this service. See Bulletin SS03030.

First determine the maximum expected rate of flow through the deaerator. Then by a careful survey of the proposed installation, determine the category into which your particular problem falls and, by means of the chart below, select the correct air eliminator.
