The 8 inch Aura PVC Pipe Cap is used for ventilating vapors and particles from a PVC pipe. This Vent Cap can be used for both commercial and residential applications. These Caps protect any PVC piping from precipitation, debris and wildlife while allowing optimal airflow.
These Pipe Caps have an all-aluminum construction. In addition, the round design is aerodynamic to withstand wind speeds up to 200 mph.
The AV-8-PVC is 8 inches in diameter and designed to fit over PVC pipes of the same diameter. This allows for easy installation without damaging the roof. The vent is engineered to work passively by using the Venturi Effect. When the wind blows against the outer louvers this creates an upward draft which allows air to freely flow in and out of the vent.
The 1/8 inch louvers are designed to prevent rain, snow, insects and animals from entering inside the vent.
These static PVC caps are available in an array of sizes. These sizes vary from 3 inches to 12 inches. We offer powder coating to match the color of any application. For any questions, please e-mail us at [email protected] or give us a call at 1-800-ROOFVENT.
The Aura PVC Vent Cap is an excellent choice for exhausting gases and vapors. For radon exhaust systems, the Aura PVC Vent Cap's superior exhausting optimizes the CFM for the in-line fans. As a result, this eliminates backpressure traditionally caused by using T-fittings or two 90 degree elbow fittings
Even the smallest breeze can create exhaust ventilation so that air is drawn out of the gravity vent. This movement of air is proportional to the wind speed and is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM) In addition, the round design is aerodynamic to withstand wind speeds up to 200 mph. This is much more efficient compared to a typical wind turbine vent, which is open to the sky; Thus allowing rain and snow to get inside when it is not in motion.
