Air and dirt in a system causes problems such as reduced heat transfer, unnecessary faults and wear and noise. But also lead to disruptions of the system and reduced pump performance. Higher energy consumption and an unreliable system are the consequence.
Where do air and dirt come from?
Air particles and gases are always present in the water of heating and cooling systems. They are generally a consequence of activities performed
(maintenance, draining and filling etc.), micro-leaks, diffusion and chemical processes in the water.
Dirt is caused by corrosion processes, maintenance to the system or failing system parts. It can accumulate and cause blockages. The use of filters is not ideal because these do not trap smaller particles, silt up, cause high flow
resistance, need regular maintenance and require replacement of components.
Air and dirt in a system lead to:
• Shortened system-life due to corrosion.
• Reduced comfort due to less heat transfer
• Cavitation and magnetite damage pumps.
• Disruptions of the system.
• Loss of image for installers and component
With air and dirt separators these adverse
factors are reduced as much as possible.
Flamco has the answer
The new Flamcovent, Flamco Clean and Flamcovent Clean Smart air and dirt separator range removes even the smallest microbubbles and minuscule dirt
particles from the system water. They are close to maintenance-free and the flow resistance is negligibly low, which saves energy.
• Up to 60% better performance compared to conventional air and dirt separators.
• Extremely low flow resistance resulting in the best energy conservation possible.
• Standard flow velocities up to 3 m/s.
• Consistent performance throughout its service life.
• Low maintenance.
The new and proven standard
The Smart air and dirt separators are smart products in every aspect. And just as in other innovations from Flamco, their new technology delivers
optimal performance. Just like the Smart range with connection sizes up to 2″, the proven effectiveness makes them future ready and the new standard in air and dirt separation.The new and proven standard The Smart air and dirt separators are smart products in every aspect.

High separation performance with energy conservation
The separation element combined with the return flow ensures excellent air and dirt separation and at the same time saves energy because of the negligible flow
resistance. An exceptional rate of at least 40% of the air and dirt is separated per cycle while using only 10% extraction of the main flow. Inside the chamber of the separator the water velocity is heavily reduced down to less than 1% of the main
flow. This efficiently separates microbubbles and dirt particles by allowing the air particles to automatically rise to the air release valve at the top and the dirt
particles to sink to the bottom to the dirt collector. A supermagnet additionally contributes in trapping ferrous particles.
Conical air chamber The air chamber of the Flamcovent Smart and Flamcovent Clean Smart is conical in shape and fitted with an elongated float for extra distance to the venting valve. This reduces the chance of contamination of the valve seat to a minimum.
Floating dirt particles collected in the upper entrapment chamber can be drained away periodically with the drain valve
