Smart Guard POD 1800 & 4500

Smart Guard POD 1800 & 4500

$0.00
Pneumatically Controlled 0 - 230 psi, up to 1,800 & 4,500 cfm

The Smart Guard POD is designed to remove up to 400 Gallons of condensate from general compressed air systems per hour. The POD uses compressed air as its power source to operate. It is therefore ideally suited to apply on applications where power is not available or desired.

The operation is automatic and there is no compressed air lost during the condensate discharge cycle. The POD will save compressed air and electricity costs with models POD 1800 (up to 1,800 cfm) and POD 4500 (up to 4,500 cfm).

Benefits:

  • • Zero air loss during the condensate discharge
  • • No electricity required to operate the drain
  • • Suitable for compressed air systems up to 4500 scfm
  • • Simple to install
  • • Test feature

Advantages:

  • • No electricity required to operate
  • • Medium pressure up to 230 psi
  • • The valve is serviceable
  • • Available with optional heater

How it Works

1. Condensate enters the inlet and begins to fill the drains reservoir.
2. The operator begins to rise until it reaches a point where it opens the valve which allows air into the air chamber.
3. Once air enters the chamber it forces the valve seal to open.
4. Once the valve seal opens the condensate, drains until the operator drops to a level where the valve starts to close.
5. This stops the condensate from draining, without compressed air venting.
6. A precise calculated volume of condensate is maintained in the reservoir acting as a barrier. Against air loss.

Smart Guard POD Installation Diagram

POS Installation Diagram

Installation shown above is
typical for applications that
requires condensate enter the
side inlet. This type application
requires the use of a balance
line.
Installation above is typical
when the drain can be mounted
directly under the condensate source,
there can be no bends or elbows in
the pipe work running into the drain.
Filters and some receiver tank
applications allow the drain
to be installed this way.
Installation shown above can
be used when the condensate
must come in the side inlet, but a
balance cannot be run. The speed
control valve vents a small amount of
air in order to prevent an air lock of
the drain.
