Condensate Management

Creation of compressed air also gives rise to water condensate. It is important to clean this compensate from oil and Hankison ’s Condensate Management products does that quite well. These oil separators have got the approval of German Institute for Construction Technique, Berlin and we are proud to offer these products.

Condensate Drains

Hankison condensate drains automatically discharge water, oil and oil/water emulsions from your compressed air system.


Snap-Trap®

Pneumatically-Actuated Drains

  • Float-activated pilot valve operates on demand allowing an air-powered piston to open a large discharge port.
  • Tested to over a million cycles
  • Level actuated — operates only on demand.

Automatic Electric Timed Drains

531, 532 and 533 Series

  • Highly accurate timer controls valve open and closed times.
  • A solid-state timer ensures accurate control of cycle times.
  • Adjustable “drain open time” and “time between openings”

Trip-L-Trap®

Pneumatically-Actuated Drains
  • Float-activated pilot valve operates on demand allowing an air-powered piston to open a large discharge port.
  • Tested to over a million cycles
  • Level actuated — operates only on demand.

HS Series

Oil Water Separators

  • Condensate…The Byproduct of Air Compression
    Condensate generated by lubricated type air compressors is comprised of atmospheric borne water vapor and lubricant from the compression process. Post compression, condensate is dropped from the air stream in the cooling, refrigerated drying and filtration phases of the air treatment process. Regardless of site conditions, it is virtually impossible to remain legally compliant with local discharge regulations without proper separation equipment.
  • Hankison HGS Series Targets Demulsible Lubricants
    “Gravity Separation” Condensate Separators are ideal for applications that use a single lubricant and rapidly separate in <5 minutes into 2 distinct layers. Excellent candidates tend to be proprietary PAO (polyalphaolefin) based lubricants marketed by compressor manufacturers. HGS Series Separators use a large tank of water that allows separable lubricant to float to the surface. Incoming condensate displaces cleaner water from the bottom to flow through a bed of activated carbon to remove trace lubricant to 15 ppm.
  • Hankison HPE Series Targets Emulsified Lubricants
    “Polar Extraction” Condensate Separators are ideal for applications that use multiple lubricants that don’t separate well. HPE Series separators have excelled in tough applications with mixed lubricants from a variety of compressor stations. HPE Series Condensate Separators use specially coated zeolite to establish a polar magnetic field that selectively targets positive and negatively charged lubricant molecules. Attracted to the charged surface, polar lubricant molecules bond to the opposite magnetic pole and are removed from the condensate. As water is neutral, it slips through the Absorption Module unimpeded to deliver <15 ppm to sanitary sewer.
