Never Freezes - Never “Dries” Out!

The Air-Trap™ allows liquid condensate to drain from the HVAC equipment and simultaneously prevents air from entering or escaping from the equipment.

Typically, HVAC equipment is fitted with “P” traps that require water, or another liquid, within a standpipe to prevent gas from entering or leaving the unit. As a result, the “P” traps are susceptible to freezing - expansion - bursting. At other times, the traps dry out allowing gas to escape or enter the HVAC equipment. The Air-Trap™ never requires addition of water to prevent unwanted air leakage.

FCN-Series Operation

HVAC Air-Trap FCN-Series Negative Pressure Waterless HVAC Condensate Trap - Perfect for Ductless Mini-splits

When condensate IS NOT present, the ball sets tightly against the seat.

HVAC Air-Trap FCN-Series Negative Pressure Waterless HVAC Condensate Trap - Perfect for Ductless Mini-splits

When condensate IS present, water pressure moves the ball away from the seat.
