Stainless Steel Trim Standard
Stainless Steel Floats Guaranteed
Fully Ported Valves - No Restrictions
Designed For Drip Tight Seal At Low Pressures
Optional Backwash Kit Available
The Cla-Val Series 35WW Air and Vacuum Valve is designed to
perform two separate functions in a sewage or wastewater system.
First, it will allow large quantities of air to be exhausted from the
pipeline as it is being filled. When this air has been vented com-
pletely, liquid will enter the valve causing the float to seal tightly
against the seat. Secondly, if the line is being drained, the valve
responds to the loss in pressure and opens. This allows air to re-
enter the pipeline and prevents potentially damaging vacuum from
developing.
Note: The Series 35WW does not open under pressure to exhaust
small quantities of air which may collect at high points during
system normal operation. Model 34WW Air Release Valve is
required for this function. For both functions, select Model 36WW
Combination Air Release and Vacuum Valve.

Installation
Series 35WW Air and Vacuum Valves should be installed at
high points or at grade changes within the pipeline. Mount the
unit in the vertical position on top of the pipeline with isolation
valve below each valve in the event servicing is required. A
vault with adequate venting and drainage should also be
provided.
For regular cleaning to keep sewage equipment in good working
condition use the optional customer installed BWKT Backwash Kit
with back flushing hose and quick disconnect couplings.
Purchase Specification
The air and vacuum valve shall be able to automatically
exhaust large quantities of air during filling of a pipeline and
allows air to re-enter pipeline during the draining or when a
negative pressure occurs.
The inlet and outlet of the valve shall have the same
cross-section area. The float shall be guided by a synthetic
rubber seal.
The float shall be of all stainless steel construction and capa-
ble of withstanding maximum system surge pressure without
failure. The body and cover shall be concentrically located and
of cast iron and the valve internal parts shall be of stainless
steel or Buna-N

rubber.
The Air and Vacuum Valve shall be Series 35WW
from Cla-Val Newport Beach, CA, U.S.A.

Sizing Guide
When selecting valve size, consideration should be given to requirements for air
release due to filling conditions and for air inlet due to draining conditions.
1. Determine system fill rate. If fill rate can be controlled to a flow rate less than
actual system design flow during initial fill or refilling, then this rate can be used
for selection from the Step One Table.
2. Determine pipeline potential collapsing factor when draining.
A. Calculate rate of flow (using Hazen-Williams or similar formulas) for each
high point using the more severe gradient there.
B. Determine collapsing pressure (psi) of pipe being used by consulting manu-
facturer's literature. Use a safety factor of 4 to 1.
C. Using collapsing pressure and high point rate of flow, select valve size from
Step Two Chart which meets or exceeds flow (SCFS).
3. Use the larger valve size selected from Step One Table or Step Two Chart.
Step Two Chart
Note: The Series 35WWS (short body) should only be substituted for the standard
35WW when vertical clearance for the 35WW is not available.
