How often should I drain my tank?



It is recommended that you drain your tank daily, whether it is manually or automatically. Water build up in your tank can cause the bottom of your tank to rust forcing you to invest in a new tank. If you find yourself forget about draining your tank, you should look into purchasing an electronic drain valve. There are three different types of drain valves:

Electronic Timer Drain is a cost-effective electronic drain valve (EDV) that is designed to automatically discharge condensation using an easy to operate built-in timer. Offered in a variety of outlet pipe and orifice sizes, this compact and reliable drain valve can meet system demands easily. Ultra bright LED lights alert the user when the power is on and the valve is open.

• Our Electronic No-Loss (ENL) Drain Valves offers an environmentally friendly way to remove condensation from compressors up to 50,000 cfm. These leak-proof, low-maintenance drains eliminates air loss and clogging while saving you hundreds of dollars in energy costs a year. This type of drain valve can attach to a wide variety of compressors and accessories, and their lightweight, compact design makes it easy to use them in confined spaces.

• The newly enhanced PNLD II units are heavy-duty industrial drain valves that remove condensate without wasting compressed air. The pneumatically-powered PNLD II requires no electricity, pre-settings, or manual intervention. Designed to complement all compressed air systems including compressors, filters, water separators, dryers, coolers and receivers, the PNLD II is easy to install and will not clog.
