Water Cooled Traps

Product Announcement from Nor-Cal Products, Inc.

Water Cooled Traps-Image

Water cooled traps protect mechanical pumps and other downstream components from condensable process gasses and their by-products. They can extend or eliminate preventative maintenance intervals and pump overhauls. Nor-Cal's unique water cooled traps have up to three coils of corrosion resistant 316 stainless steel tubing to provide a large surface area. Internal baffles combined with the coils create a perilous path for the gas flow, maximizing resident time and increasing contact between the gas and the coils. Depending on the application, house water or refrigerated water can be used to achieve the required temperature to cause by-products to pass from gas to solid phase. A thirty to fifty psi water supply is required. Anticipate a 2 gpm flow rate.

The two-piece trap body and 304 stainless steel construction allow these traps to be easily cleaned. For proper sealing, apply a light coating of Krytox lube when cleaning or replacing the O-ring. Standard finish is beadblast. Electropolish finish, right angle configurations, larger body sizes and CF or ASA flanges are also available. Call for pricing. Quick Disconnect Fittings immediately shut off water flow from both directions for single handed, no-spill removal of the trap from the system for preventative maintenance or O-ring replacement. Available as an option.

Options available for this product:

  • ISO Body Flanges
  • Quick Disconnect Fittings
