Compressed air drains offer value and performance
Published:  12 December, 2017

HI-LINE INDUSTRIES, an established UK manufacturer of high-quality compressed air purification equipment, has launched its new HTD condensate drain into the UK market. Featuring an isolation valve for strainer cleaning to 250 micron, the latest-generation HTD offers a 100% ED rated solenoid coil and multi-voltage timer controller to ensure automatic compressed air system drainage.

Hi-line says although condensate drains are possibly the most inconspicuous components in a compressed air system, they are among the most important and these compact yet innovative products have to function with extreme reliability for the system’s filters and separators to do their job effectively. Moreover, compressed air drains prevent moisture carry-over, which can wash away lubricant on motors and bearings found in tools and machinery, leading to premature wear, higher maintenance and greater expense.

Hi-line says its HTD is a fully automatic (no maintenance) drain offering a high performance-to-cost ratio and described as Britain’s best value autodrain, the HTD is based on a high-quality, 16-bar rated brass valve body which is precision machined to fine tolerances. High pressure variants at 40 and 80 bar are also available to order. The valve orifice bore is 4mm in diameter, thus allowing the largest piece of dirt, metal or scale to be removed along with the condensate.

At either end of the 2/2 way direct-acting valve can be found a ½” male and ½” BSP female connection. The coil is available in 24, 100 and 240V versions, and is 100% ED rated to offer long service life and facilitate operation in temperatures up to 60˚C.
