September 2010

Tormarine represents the new WIN2000 Air Pipe Heads from Winteb. With its revolutionary design, these vent-heads are better, smaller and lighter than any other Vent-Heads in market. Instead of the usual cast-iron, welded hot dipped iron/steel constructions or stainless steel, WIN2000 are produced with seawater resistant aluminium DIN1725. Hence it will not corrode and requires no maintenance. Furthermore the WIN2000 have a space and weight saving design that is revolutionary compared to other Air Pipe Heads. For example: The dimensions of the DN 50 are ø 106 mm by 161 mm; its weight, an astonishing 2 kg.

WIN2000 innovative design enables it to have an above average volumetric flow, especially in the larger sizes. Winteb Vent-Heads use an O-ring sealed retaining ring. This way the PE ball, together with the O-ring, provide the best possible leakage protection.

  • Type 1, the most common, which is used for example in ballast tanks. This model is available in the following sizes: DN50/65/80/100/125/150/175/200/250 and DN450;
  • Type 1-B which has a larger anti-splash water shield and is recommended for tanks in which absolutely no water splashing is allowed, like fuel oil tanks. It is available in the following sizes: DN50/65/80/100/125;
  • And type "Small Flange" Connection which is model 1-B with a flange diameter which will not exceed the diameter of the Air Pipe Head itself. It is available in sizes DN50/65/80/100/125.
