is designed to be installed in the water line
just prior to the inlet of the hydropneumatic tank it serves.
This mechanism is a venturi that draws air into the water line
through the air inlet / check valve combination to continually
charge the water with air. Excess air in the tank is relieved
through an AVC assembly or an optional air vent installed in the tank.
Micronizer is shipped with the indicator arrow set at 15 degrees
on the dial. This slightly closes the larger of the two open holes
inside to create a pressure differential that allows air to be drawn
into the water line. The amount of air drawn in and draw time is adjusted
with the adjustment knob.
Do not assume a 30 degree setting means a 30% suction time.
Properly installed and adjusted, Micronizer will draw air for 30 to 50% of the
pump run time. For example, if the pump run time is one minute, a suction can be
felt at the air inlet hole for 20 to 30 seconds.
