The condensate removal drain eliminates the risk of human error by providing a regular controlled system of draining – on time, every time - automatically. The analogue timer is programmable from 0.5 to 10 seconds on and 0 to 45 minutes off. All come standard with isolating ball valve, Y strainer for easy cleaning and coil and DIN plug (IP65). Suitable for draining ring mains, filters, separators, after coolers, dryers, receivers, drip legs and other compressed air systems. Threads conform to ISO 7.1 Sealing Threads.

  • What is a Condensate Removal Valve?

    The condensate removal drain valve and electronic timer combination (CRDV) are used to remove (blow down) condensate which accumulates in the low points of a compressed air line (ring main) or receiver. If left this liquid (oily water and rust particles) will cause problems for control valves and other instrumentation.

  • How does a Condensate Blow Down Valve Work?

    An electronic timer is plugged into the coil on a direct acting solenoid valve with ½” Bsp ports. The On and Off cycle are selected on the timer with the control knobs. 0.5 to 10 seconds ON and 0.5 to 45 minutes OFF. The unit continues to cycle through the set sequence as long as power is applied.A small in-line strainer / ball valve combination is mounted integral with the solenoid.

  • How long will my Condensate Removal Drain Valve Last?

    Like any valve this depends upon the maintenance of the assembly. Regular scheduled maintenance of the unit to clean the strainer is standard procedure. The only moving part is the armature and may have to be replaced in time.There are spare armatures available for the solenoid. The timer is IP65 environmental protection.

  • How do I install my Condensate Removal Valve?

    The blow down valve can be installed in any position. However with the timer face upright so it can be read is the normal position. Face the timer DIN plug down with the cable tailing away so that moisture will not track back up into the terminal.

  • What are typical uses of a Condensate Removal Valve?

    This type of valve and timer combination have many uses outside of condensate removal. However in a pneumatic (compressed air) system the units are installed on the base of the air receiver, the base of the air drier, outlets on the in-line air filters, droppers in the compressed air ring main and any other low points where condensate can gather. Without these units condensate buildup can be a major problem for your machinery.

  • How long will my product take to get to me? 

    This depends upon where you are based and the freight method chosen. If the express freight option is selected it is usually next day delivery to metropolitan areas in Australia for under 5kg. If free freight has been selected it will go by road freight which can be anywhere from 1 to 10 days depending upon your location. It usually averages 3 days.

  • What warranty do I get?

    All of our products come standard with a 12 month warranty. The good news is we have very strict quality controls and all valves leave our warehouse tested and inspected so there are rarely any issues. Many compressor manufacturers use our valves on their receivers so they are widely used and respected. Also once your valve is in and operating it will most likely continue to do so for a very long time.
