| AllVentTM is
a product of premium quality designed exclusively for use in
deep cathodic protection anode systems.
AllVentTM has openings placed in
a strategic pattern to allow 360° venting ability without
a loss of pipe strength. Vertical slits placed with precision
cutting wire produce openings 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) in length
with a width of .006 inches (.015 cm). With proper installation,
AllVentTM will vent throughout the
life of the deep groundbed.
AllVentTM is of prime importance when sealing is required on
the deep anode system. In addition to venting, AllVentTM can
also be utilized as a conduit for adding water should the system
AllVent'sTM slots are parallel
to the longitudinal centerline of the pipe. Center-to-center
spacing is 6 inches. Each slot has been placed 1 inch (2.54 cm)
in circumferential distance from the preceeding slot, allowing
for a 360° venting
ability. Maximum pipe strength is maintained by placement of
openings in this pattern.
- Place end cap on bottom end of the first AllVentTM joint
to be inserted.
- Add AllVentTM joints by gluing
couplings together until the length of the discharging anode
column is achieved.
- Add solid pipe until ground level is reached.
- Add clean water to pipe to facilitate sinking as needed.
Do not allow mud to be sucked into the AllVentTM system.
- Maintain surface cap on top of AllVentTM system
during backfill installation.
- 24 hours after backfill installation, remove surface cap
and finish the system as required.
AllVentTM is available in ten or twenty-foot
lengths and has a nominal inside diameter of 1 inch (25.4 mm)
with an outside diameter of 1.32 inches (32.3 mm). Special diameters
can be produced upon request.
