wood boiler air bleeding problem

I have a energy king 35 gal. wood - hot water furnace. It is a closed system and feeds a heat exchanger for radiant heat. It is temp. controlled with a aquastat set at about 140 deg. I'm having trouble with air pockets and the pump is often air-locked. I need info on the best way keep the air bled out. I'm told by the manufacturer that it should be at about 12 psi. when at 140 - 160 degrees. The manufacturer wasn't able to make any suggestions on bleeding air from the system. They said to simply fill it with water and fire it up. Should I have a auto feed valve with a air bleeder? What is the best way to do it?

You will probably need to supply a diagram or two or a few pictures to get a worthwhile answer. otherwise you may get suggestions that are not acurate or practical for your application.
