Condensate enters the drain through one of two inlet connections. As condensate is collected and the translucent reservoir fills, a stainless steel float mechanism rises. When the condensate reaches a design level, the float mechanism actuates an isolated magnetic trigger assembly. The trigger assembly directs control air to the valve actuator, which in turn opens a full-port drain valve.Condensate will then exit the unit. As the float drops, the trigger assembly closes the control air line and the valve actuator closes the ball valve. The drain is then returned to the collection mode.
