Condensate removal from gas piping systems is necessary to protect piping and equipment from possible damage caused by corrosion or water hammer. In addition, water lying in low spots in piping can restrict gas flow resulting in increased pressure drop within the system. In addition to all low spots, Varec Biogas drip traps should be installed frequently along horizontal piping runs for convenient removal of accumulated condensate.
The 247AT Series Drip Trap is suitable for the automatic collection and safe removal of condensate from the gas and used for working pressures up to 100 psig (688 kPa). For systems with lower pressure ratings, see the product data sheet for Varec Biogas 246AT Series Low Pressure Drip Traps with Electric Actuators.
