AUTOMATIC DRAINS
WHY USE AUTOMATIC
DRAINS ?
WATER ACCUMULATION

S
59

When compressing air, a compressor


draws in many other substances
including water vapor. The compression
process causes this water vapor to
condense and accumulate in receivers,
tanks and compressed air systems.
The most obvious place for this
condensate to accumulate is in the
compressor tank. In addition to
damaging the tank, this condensate will
also be entrained in the air flow and be
drawn into the compressed air network.
Removing this condensate from the
compressed air system is vitally
important, as even small quantities can
have a significantly detrimental effect on
downstream equipment.

COMPRESSOR OILS
In addition, compressed air is usually
produced from oil-flooded compressors.
This oil gets into the flow of air and can
mix with water vapor, liquid water and
other contaminants to form a thick,
viscous substance even more damaging
to downstream components.
For all these reasons, condensate
removal is crucial to any compressed
air system.

WHY AUTOMATE
THE DRAINAGE
FUNCTION ?
Automating the condensate drainage
function saves operator and maintenance
personnel time and eliminates the
possibility that removal will be forgotten
or overlooked. Automatic drains can also
help manage seasonal fluctuations in
condensate accumulation by varying

TRAPPING CONDENSATE
Due to the high costs of resulting damages, removing the condensate from compressed air should be a high priority.
There a three different ways to trap condensates:

Zero Air Loss Automatic Drain:


a sensor located in the condensate
collector triggers the draining of the
tank when a set value is reached

AUTOMATIC DRAINS
SELECTING THE PROPER AUTOMATIC DRAIN
Selecting the right automatic drain is a question of several criteria: environment, pressure, temperature, but the main goal should
always be to limit energy cost so a zero air loss drain is always preferable over programmable or float operated drains.

WHY A ZERO AIR LOSS AUTOMATIC DRAIN


IS ALWAYS THE BEST SOLUTION?

Valve operating time too long/operating intervals too short:


valve remains open although all the condensate has been
drained allowing compressed air to escape

If the control of a condensate drain is exclusively time-based,


it employs preset values for valve operation times and intervals.
However, since the amount of condensate in a compressed air
system changes constantly (summer/winter, maximum/part
load), the following problems can occur:

High switching frequency because the condensate collecting


vessel is too small: premature failure without the possibility
of servicing causing compressed air system to back up with
condensate

Valve operating time too short/operating intervals too long:


not enough discharge is drained causing compressed air
system to back up with condensate

S
59

Small valve nozzles are susceptible to contamination: valve


can no longer close causing compressed air to escape

The three following selection guides will help describe the main features of the
different automatic drains available

Magnetic core level control


The magnetic core level control employs fixed switching
points to operate the valve.
The magnetic core signal transmitter position is detected
by non-contact magnetic sensors:
Independent of the condensate type (oil or water)

MAGNETIC CORE
LEVEL CONTROL

Independent of the working pressure.


The collecting vessel integrated in the condensate drain is always used
at optimum efficiency. This results in a minimized number of switching cycles
and in a maximum service life of the drain valve. No calibration required.

BENEFITS
An electronic level controller continuously
monitors the level of condensate. When
the maximum level is reached the drain
valve opens and drains the condensate
from the compressed air system. When a
minimum level is reached, the valve closes
in time before compressed air can escape.
This prevents the loss of compressed air
Large cross-section diaphragm ensures
that contaminants are flushed out ensuring
a long service life and fault free valve
operation.

TECH TIP
It is strongly recommended to always
install a Y strainer (59.705) ahead
of an external drain. By trapping large
debris and sludge, this will prevent
costly malfunctions and extend the
life of the automatic drain.
