Level sensed condensate drain

01 April, 2016

The NUFORS-CR level sensed condensate drain, available from Jorc, is claimed to remove all types of condensate from compressed air systems up to 100 m3/min without the requirement of electricity.

The NUFORS-CR removes condensate from compressed air systems without using electricity. The discharge process is automatic and is based on a newly developed 2/2 way level controlled valve principle that operates a direct cylinder valve.

The condensate drain is said to be ideally suited in applications where power is not available, too expensive or not reliable. The integrated stainless steel strainer protects the valve, optimising the discharge performance. The condensate level can be viewed through the sight port that offers a visual monitoring.

Commercial benefits

• Competitive ‘true green’ solution.

• No operating costs.

• No electricity required – install and go.

• Condensate viewing sight port optionally available.

• Operating pressure up to 16 bar.

• Reduced stocking costs – 1 model covers 100 m3/min.

• Suitable for any type of compressed air system.

• No complicated sizing charts required.

Technical advantages

According to Jorc, some of the main technical advantages of the NUFORS-CR level sensed condensate drain include:

• Compact design.

• Successful draining of condensate due to large orifice (also heavily emulsified condensate).

• Incredibly easy and quick to install and to service.

• No complicated external control air balance line required.

• Integrated strainer.

• Top- and side inlets available.

• Test feature.

• Robust aluminium housing.

• Direct acting valve construction for a reliable condensate discharge operation.
