Energy Saving and Environmental Improvement
Treating oil-contaminated condensate with a high-quality auto drain trap for saving energy
As to discharge of condensate generated fr om an air compressor, problems of high air loss and high oil content have been
identified, which leads to energy loss and environmental problems,
preventive measures are needed.

Damage caused by condensate
Incomplete discharge of condensate generated from an air compressor can cause shortened life and failure of an air compressor, air dryer, receiver tank, production facilities, and so forth.

What’s the sure way to discharge condensate?
regarding an oil injection compressor, condensate causes frequent clogging of a drain trap that lowers efficiency, affects air quality, results in high energy loss due to air loss, and contaminates water because of high oil content. Installation of a semi-permanent drain trap and oil-water separator, which discharge condensate only without energy loss, can maximize efficiency in terms of operation and maintenance.
