Remove Condensate with Minimal Air Loss
Removing condensate is important for maintaining the appropriate air quality level required by end uses. However, significant compressed air (and energy) losses can occur if condensate removal is done improperly.
Excess compressed air loss during condensate removal can occur due to several factors. The table below illustrates several condensate removal methods and the characteristics of each method.
Other Points to Consider
Drain the condensate often and in smaller quantities rather than less frequently and in larger quantities. Consider oversized condensate treatment equipment to handle unexpected lubricant loading and to reduce maintenance.
All drain traps should be inspected periodically, with parts repaired or replaced as required. If replacement is the decision, consider using zero loss drain traps.
