VRTX100 Taco VorTech Automatic Air Separator. Taco’s family of air elimination products delivers the most complete and effective means of air removal on the market. The ultimate micro bubble separation of the 4900 Series Air Separator or the enhanced level of the VorTech® Air Separator eliminates the damaging effects and irritating noise caused by unwanted system air. Available in 3⁄4” – 2” sizes, they require no minimum run of pipe and have a convenient 1⁄2” tapping for easy installation of an expansion tank.

The Taco VorTech Air Separator is designed to provide an enhanced level of air removal in hydronic heating, cooling or combinational systems. Air is quickly and effectively separated and vented through a factory installed Taco 3⁄4” Hy-Vent® up to a maximum pressure of 150 psi and a maximum temperature of 240°. 

The VorTech Air Separator features a primary separation chamber where the process of air elimination is controlled and optimized. The specially designed tangential primary chamber creates a swirling effect, or “vortex,” similar to a tornado. This swirling effect forms a low-pressure area in the center of the chamber. Air is drawn toward this lower pressure, and then once there it moves freely upward and out through the Taco 3/4" Hy-Vent. Combined with the Bubble Breaker Cartridge and a downward direction change in the flow of water before exiting, air is quickly and effectively removed from the system.
