Compressed air is compressed and discharged at elevated temperatures in a saturated state. As the air cools through aftercoolers, dryers, or pipelines, the water vapor condenses into a liquid form which then mixes with the normal oil carryover from the compressor. The condensate becomes contaminated by the oil and must be treated before expelling it into a sewer system or onto the ground. The oil must be separated from the condensate and only the condensate can be expelled. The oil must be reclaimed and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.
CTS Eliminator II
The CTS Eliminator II separates oil contamination from condensate before being expelled. The condensate becomes contaminated by the oil and must be treated before expelling it into a sewer system or onto the ground. The oil must be separated from the condensate and only the condensate can be expelled. The oil must be reclaimed and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. The CTS Eliminator II has been designed as an effective and reliable means of treating lubricant contaminated compressor condensate. Untreated condensate can have detrimental effects on the environment and is illegal to dump into sewer systems or onto the ground.
The Troubleshooter was designed to effectively separate emulsified compressor condensate to levels of 15 PPM or less without premature element failure and backup spillages. The unique delivery system and the increased media's ability to absorb up to four times the amount of oil that standard activated carbon can hold sets this eliminator apart from the competition. The Troubleshooter is the most economical and efficient way to separate emulsified, slowly demulsible, or high volume condensate loads. Determine the highest cfm flow possible with the application, then make your selection of the appropriate unit size.
GD PAK Series
The process of compressing air typically produces a substantial amount of condensate that contains air compressor lubricant carryover. Without an oil-water separator in your compressed air system, this condensate/lubricant mixture will go down the drain and quite possibly find its way into the surrounding groundwater. The GD PAK System has been engineered to provide the most effective and user-friendly oil-water separator on the market.
The DS1 Mechanical Drain is a pnuematically designed drain that automatically removes liquid, oil, and water contaminates from compressed air system components. The design, which includes an efficient bowl size with a large quiet zone allows for no re-entrainment of liquid back into the air system. The metal bowl is also compatible with all compressor lubricants.
The EvacuatorTM is the most reliable demand drain solution for large condensate loads in a compressed air system. The EvacuatorTM is available in a 52 oz. pneumatically operated version or a 27 oz. or 77 oz. electronically managed system version. The electronically managed system incorporates microprocessor based electronics for self-diagnostics, error correction and host computer communications capabilities.
No Air Loss Condensate Drain
The NA750 is the ultimate high pressure demand operated drain.The unit is fully automatic -no electricity is required. Its low profile gives you the advantages of installing it in areas where the vessel to be drained is only a few inches from the ground. A unique air valve design uses a magnetic force to ensure both a positive opening and closing that will prevent air loss.The magnetic force is positioned away from the condensation level to prevent any attraction of metal particulate. An innovative ball valve support and positioning system prevents the side loading problem which otherwise would cause premature sealing failure around the valve stem. The ½” ball valve ensures that scale and rust will exit the vessel. The NA750 will not clog which eliminates the need for a strainer.
Gardner Denver pneumatically operated condensate drains are designed to ensure that manufacturing processes and products do not become contaminated by ensuring that liquid oil and water condensates are discharged from the compressed air stream. The SMD-TMD-BMD Series features a no air-loss actuated design which operates on demand. The discharge port closes before any compressed air is lost. Air powered pistons are used for positive opening and closing of discharge port.
Automatic Electric Condensate Drain
Gardner Denver AED Series Automatic Electric Condensate Drains are designed to ensure that manufacturing processes and products do not become contaminated by ensuring that liquid oil and water condensates are discharged from the compressed air stream. Drain installation is typically a part of a complete Gardner Denver air treatment system.
Electronic Timed Condensate Drain
Gardner Denver's DS3 Series Electronic Timed drains are ideal for small or large condensate loads. The DS3 Series consists of two products — the mini and the general. The Mini is ideal for smaller filters. The General is better suited for larger filters, refrigerated dryers, receiver tanks, and other general purpose applications. Both drain valves feature state of the art electronic timers and brass valve bodies, which come standard. The general model is available in corrosion free stainless steel and high pressure. The DS3 can also incorporate the optional Gardner Denver "4-Port" controller which automatically controls four independent solenoid drains due to the need to have electric timed drain valves operating at various intervals.
Motorized Valve Condensate Drain
When pipe scale, contaminants from deliquescent dryers or other large particles present in your condensate keep plugging or holding open your common drain valve, it's time for the DS4 Motorized Valve Drain from Gardner Denver. This valve is designed to handle all types of contaminants without clogging or sticking open. It consists of a ½" full-flow ball valve which will perform one full rotation in 7.5 seconds. Battery backup will provide continued operation in the event of a power failure which is something that is not available on most competitor units.
