Improve your Air System Efficiency with Condensate Drains

As air is compressed, it is rapidly heated and cooled. This can cause condensation to build in the air tank. Make sure you drain your compressor regularly, and clear the drain valve of any debris buildup. John Henry Foster offers three “time proven” drains to handle all your system requirements: Drain-All, Water Hog and Nano Timer Drain.









Key Benefits of Zero Air-Loss Condensate Drains Are:

• Saves energy (no air consumption)
• Very resistant to clogging
• Removes risk of condensate carry-over
• Automatically adjusts to condensate levels
• Long service intervals with safe, easy maintenance

Condensate drains are possibly the least glamorous and most ignored component of a compressed air system but nevertheless, a most important part. No matter how much you spend on that fancy new compressed air system, not spending a little effort with your drain choice could cause you no end of headaches and increased operating costs for years to come.

Where there is compressed air, there is water. Condensation is the moisture that drops out of an air flow as it cools and is therefore a constant threat to cause expensive problems in a compressed air system. Condensate drain systems are necessary to keep water, dirt, wear particles, bacteria out of your system. The problems get worse if you operate lubricated reciprocating or oil flooded rotary screw compressors – which is just about everyone.

Compressor oil makes its way into the distribution system with the compressed air. The mixture of oil, water, and dirt tends to build up a sludge that will ultimately jam or clog production equipment, air tools and drains. John Henry Foster offers three “time proven” drains to handle all your system requirements: Drain-All, Water Hog and Nano Timer Drain.
