The Best Condensate Drain Solutions for Compressed Air Systems

How can we help you?


Level sensed drains remove condensate from compressed air systems without discharging unnecessary loss of costly compressed air. The JORC level sensing drain options include an electronic zero air loss drain including an alarm feature, a magnetic zero air loss drain specifically for filter applications whereby the drain does not require electricity to operate and a pneumatic operated level sensed drain that also does not require electricity to operate.

Why use a Level Sensing Drain?

Level sensing drains are designed to remove condensation from compressed air systems without any unnecessary loss of costly compressed air.

Any compressed air system whether it is used in bottling, conveying, or vacuum packing, just to name a few, will accumulate condensate within its piping over time. This could lead to a depreciation of function, product, or the system itself.

The condensate needs to be discharged from the system safely and efficiently. The aim of level sensing drains is to nullify air loss and remove contaminants present in the condensate during discharge.

Unlike timer-based drains that open and close at specified time intervals, level sensing drains use internal sensors to determine condensate levels and choose the exact moment to discharge it.

Levels of condensate fluctuate in compressed air systems due to ambient atmospheric conditions and variations in system load. Level sensing drains prove to be the more reliable choice providing maximum service life for the system and the drain valve.

JORC Level Sensing Drains

JORC produces level sensing drains for virtually all types of compressed air applications. We offer a range of drains suitable for various applications, from compact models for limited spaces to larger ones for high capacity needs. We offer models for refrigerated dryers and filters up to 350 CFM as well as heavy-duty drains suitable for large capacity compressed air applications up to 17500 CFM. JORC level sensing drains are used to remove condensate separated liquid separators and are also installed under piston compressors to remove compressor lubricant.
