Depth of Burial Valves should be buried below the frost line to prevent freezing. Where combination air valves are used, those in a single body are less likely to freeze than those in separate bodies. Freezing Suitable insulation and electrical heat tape should be provided in areas prone to freezing. Frozen air valves will not operate and can be damaged. Thermally activated relief valves (typically supplied in 3/8 or '/2 in. 19 mm or 13 mml diameter) can be installed on the valve body t o release water and reduce the possibility of damage from freezing.

Inspection When inspecting air valves, isolate the valve by closing the shutoff valve before putting hands and fingers into the valve outlet. If the air valve should suddenly close, hands or fingers could be injured or lost. Pressurized air can also be trapped between the shutoff valve and the air valve; therefore, any removal of air valve bolts, plugs, or covers must be done with extreme care to release trapped air slowly and prevent serious injury. Pipe1ine Fi I I ing Thread protectors and packing material should be removed from air valves prior to filling the pipeline.
