Condensate Drain Valves

Condensate Drain Valves

Where there is compressed air there is water which means that condensate management is a critical step in supplying clean, dry compressed air to your tools, equipment, and processes. General Air Treatment Drain Valves are suited for any air reservoir tank, air/water separator, compressed air filter, air dryer, or drip leg where the removal of condensate is required. Email us your questions so we can help you find the right drain valve for your application then place order through our web site with confidence.

Types of Drain Valves

  • Zero Air Loss Drains
  • Automatic Drains
  • Timed Drains
  • Float Drains

FD Series - Float Drain - No Electricity Required

In the process of generating and distributing compressed air, moisture condensation is inevitable. It usually contains oil and other contaminates which can sometimes be particularly aggressive. The FD Series automatic drain has been specially designed to deal with the problem of discharging condensate of this type from the system, reliably and without wasting valuable compressed air. The construction of the auto-drain prevents solid particles from being deposited on the valve seat which could otherwise become obstructed.

The FD2000 begins operation when condensate collects in the bottom of the drain. The float lifts and triggers the drain lever. Drainage ceases when the condensate level falls back to the minimum level. A manual drain valve is also incorporated.

Also Note: aluminum body, float and lever in stainless steel, manual drain valve in brass, oil-resistant gasket

CDE Series - Large Capacitance Zero Loss Drain

The “CDE” discharges only condensate and is protected from solid particles by an extended surface internal filter. The combination of a robust, high capacity aluminum body with ingenious design and high quality internal components, guarantees precise, reliable operation at working pressures up to 290 psi and compressed air flow rates up to 2650 cfm.

Other Characteristics: Alarm Light, Drain Test Button, Pre-Wired, 5.5 Foot Cable

CDE1610 - Small Capacity ZERO Loss Drain

The CDE1610, with non-corrosive FRP body, discharges only condensate, not air. The valve is solenoid operated, and has a large diameter orifice. Careful design and component selection ensures precise and reliable operation with working pressures up to 232 psi and compressed air flows up to 212 cfm. Excellent for filter applications! (inlet connection can be changed to mount horizontally or vertically)

DVA Series - Automatic Drain Valve

The “DVA” Automatic Drain Valve is designed to drain condensate from anywhere that condensate collects.

A full ported solenoid valve is electrically timed by a solid state adjustable timer to provide “Off Time” operation from 1 to 60 minutes, and “On Time” operation from 1 to 10 seconds.

DVA-2Tx3/4C8 3/4" 225 175 120

SCE Series - Timer Controlled Fluid Drain

The “SCE” unit is designed for the safe and efficient drainage of condensate moisture, oil, water, etc.

The Timer can be supplied for three different voltages, and provides adjustable “Off Time” operation (1-40 minutes), and “On Time” operation (1-20 seconds). The Solenoid Valve has a brass body, stainless steel internals, and the coil type depends on the power supply voltage. The Ball Valve is constructed entirely from chrome plated brass. The Filter seal is ensured by an O-ring inserted under slight pressure (for SCE/16) or by a gasket (for SCE/50).

ZLD Series - Zero Loss Drain

Electronic condensate drains of the Zero Air series feature:

  • Non-wearing magnetic-core level control for optimized and loss free discharge of condensate
  • Integrated dirt screen between level measurement and drain valve to protect the diaphragm valve with alarm monitoring
  • Diaphragm valve with large cross-section and condensate pilot control for extended service life
  • Potential-free alarm contact on ZLD013 and ZLD023

ZLD-023 1/2" 232 140 120

SCM Series - High Pressure Float Drain - No Electricity Required

The SCM40 has been designed in order to discharge the oil-mixed condensate from the distributing pipes of high pressure compressed-air systems. While obtaining high opening and closure powers, it makes possible the discharge of liquids, including viscous liquids, which could deposit inside the condensate separators of compressed air. The construction design is such that it does not allow the solid particles to deposit on the discharge orifice, therefore eliminating blockage problems. A separate drainage valve allows manual discharge.
