SS1VA/JAH Series

compressed air is used in many different industries including high-precision machinery and instrumentation. JA Series/G8 Rubber Valve Seat for Tight Sealing The standardized rubber valve seat allows for tight sealing with the precision ground float. After air is compressed it is cooled by an after-cooler or in a receiver tank.Free Float Technology AIR TRAPS For Air In today's world of automatation. blockage caused by oils and/or scale can be easily eliminated.

JA Series Discharge High-Viscosity Condensate With a large ( 5/8") orifice. JA Series/G8 Continuous Condensate Discharge The float adjusts quickly to changes in condensate flow adjusting the valve seat opening. 16. This condensate also occurs in compressed air distribution piping. the free float does not suffer from concentrated wear. leading to rust and fluctuation in highprecision machinery. Air traps protect your equipment and products by discharging condensate automatically. where condensate is formed from the air as water droplets. maintaining initial performance quality over a long time period. Discharges large amounts of condensate (up to approx. Long Service Life The hinge-less lever-less free float has one moving part allowing for simple operation.

These traps are made with durable steel construction for a long service life.

Long Service Life The hinge-less lever-less free float has one moving part allowing for simple operation. SS1VA Series/JAH Series Continuous Condensate Discharge The float adjusts quickly to changes in condensate flow adjusting the valve seat opening. flammable or otherwise hazardous gases. SS1VA Series/JAH Series Three Point Seating for Tight Sealing 2 Points in the Body The high-precision ground float fits securely on the threepoint seating creating a high-quality seal even for metal valve seats comparable to that of rubber. With infinite sealing surfaces. The SS1VA has all-stainless steel construction with a metal valve seat available for high-temperature applications. Condensate is the cause of many challenges resulting in rust and freezing in the pipes as well as a reduction in product quality. Drain traps for discharging condensate from both compressed air and inert gases protect your equipment and products by discharging condensate automatically as it forms while maintaining a tight seal. ensuring continuous rapid discharge without condensate backup. after air or other inert gases are compressed they are cooled. The JAH Series features cast steel bodies for high-pressure applications with tight-sealing provided by a rubber valve seat.
