G3/8 x 230 Vac Drain Valve

Drain valves are a crucial part of the compressed air system. Condensate drain valves remove condensate from the air system without losing excessive compressed air and without shutting down the system. Condensate can have harmful effects on a system when not removed. For instance, moisture can wash lubrication from air tools and production equipment causing downtime and maintenance; an inconsistent supply of dry air can cause production quality problems; and excessive rust and scale can form in the air distribution system. Also, water can back up into the compressor and wreck the machinery, air dryers can become overloaded, and in-line filters can be destroyed.

These drains incorporate a solenoid valve and an electric timer. The timer  has two settings: time between valve openings  and amount of time the valve stays open. The drain comes with an electrical cord that can be plugged into a wall outlet. By matching these two settings to the amount of condensate a system produces the condensate can be removed from the compressed air system. The goal is to set the timer long enough to empty all of the condensate but not so long that compressed air is wasted.
