AUTOMATIC DRAIN VALVES

AUTOMATIC DRAIN VALVES

Cooling, drying and filtering your compressed air is only part of the air treatment process. In a 100 scfm system operating at 100 psig in ambient conditions of 70°F and 50% relative humidity, each 8-hour shift produces 2.5 gallons of condensate that must be drained from the system. Van Air Systems offers a variety of sturdy and economical options for draining condensate from your compressed air system. Automatic drains remove condensed liquid – usually a mixture of water and compressor lubricant — from compressed air systems. Our drain valves are commonly installed on air receiver tanks, drip legs, bulk moisture separators, coalescing filters, refrigerated air dryers, and deliquescent air dryers.

MOTORIZED BALL VALVES

Whether you need the simplicity of a basic valve or the flexibility of added features, the MDV Series is your solution. Choose from two models, plus different options and accessories to fit the level of adjustment and controls you need. For the most dependable draining, install the Van Air Systems MDV Series motorized ball valve. The MDV’s heavy-duty ball valve can manage virtually any fluid in a wide variety of applications. Depend on it for nearly any fluid service.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

>> Adjustable timers
>> Powerful motor
>> Full ported ball valve
>> Control by either a timer or float switch


SOLENOID ELECTRIC DRAINS

The inexpensive and reliable electric drain valve (EDV) automatically removes condensate from your air system. It has an integral strainer to prevent clogging and saves time and money by eliminating the need for manual draining. The EDV also eliminates the need for the wasteful practice of bleeding, or leaving cracked open manual drain valves. With adjustable valve open and cycle time settings, all EDV Series drain valves can be set for your operating conditions. The valve open time may be set for 10 to 60 seconds and the cycle time may be set for 1 to 60 minutes.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

>> Installed indoors or outdoors
>> Lexan enclosure
>> Maximum alloawable working pressure 230 PSID
>> Solid State Timer


PNEUMATIC DRAINS

The PDV-500 series drain valves are heavy duty zero loss pneumatic drain valves that save energy. With no electricity needed for operation, the PDV-500 Series is well suited for remote or portable applications and is safe to operate in hazardous areas. As a demand-operated drain, the PDV-500T automatically does the work of draining for you, eliminating the guess work of setting the cycle time of the timed drain valve. As condensate levels change, the PDV-500T automatically adjusts to drain as needed, without permitting valuable compressed air to escape. Designed with a full flow ball valve and proprietary pilot valve using a magnet and proximity switch, the PDV-500T will not clog. This unique pilot valve design allows the control air to be totally separated from the condensate, preventing any attraction of pipe scale. The ball valve eliminates the need to install a strainer. This means better dependability than competitive units. The see-through vessel allows visual inspection of the condensate. The test button, which is included on both the brass and stainless steel units, make it easy to check valve operation or manually drain the system. The Van Air Systems PDV-500T is a versatile draining system ideal for receivers, dryers, tanks, drop legs, pipes, and any equipment requiring regular condensate removal.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

>> Zero air loss
>> Non-clogging
>> No electricity required
