Many of Q Applied Systems customers in the HVAC industry may have correctly guessed that these pipes…
…are actually vacuum-relief vent pipes – albeit on a grand scale. The vents are located on the high points of an underground water transmission pipeline that stretches 94 miles from the Lake Skinner Reservoir in Riverside County to the Lower Otay Reservoir in San Diego County.
Check out this drone video of a local vent:
Air vacuum relief valves are located at the high points of the pipeline. The primary purpose is to vent large volumes of air pockets in the pipes. The stack heights are directly related to system pressures.
Above are examples of how “Q” is applied to many of the engineering formulas that you use when determining load requirements. Whether it’s the amount of heat required, cubic feet of dried air needed to meet moisture removal loads or the air ventilation rate needed; Q Applied Systems represents the necessary applied products and solutions to meet your system requirements. That’s why the “Q” is in our name!
