These special devices, manufactured for vertical turbine and deep-well pump installations, generally regulate the exhaust rate and closure speed of the airhacuum valve. It is important to note that the slowclosing and dampening devices are effective in suppressing water hammer only when placed near the pump. Figure 5-1 shows the proper location of an airhacuum valve with slow-closing device. Air-release valves can be used with time-delayed, power-actuated pump discharge control valves to release air in the pump column slowly under full pump pressure before the control check valve opens.
