AGF Manufacturing has introduced its COLLECTANDRAIN Model 5450 Self-Maintaining Auxiliary Drain. The Model 5450 is the latest in a line of heated auxiliary drain cabinets and includes all the benefits of the original Model 5400. The new cabinet features the ability to self-maintain the drain level and allow for maintenance to be better regulated.
The COLLECTANDRAIN line includes a series of auxiliary drains in several configurations to meet and exceed NFPA 13 and 25 standards addressing drainage recommendations for dry and pre-action fire sprinkler systems. COLLECTANDRAIN heated cabinets are temperature-controlled to prevent freezing and include integrated NFPA 25 signage on a lockable cabinet.
Model 5450 incorporates a unique feature designed to prevent the auxiliary drain from filling beyond the safety level of the cabinet by automatically shedding condensation from the drum drip in small amounts. After a certain level of condensation has accumulated in the auxiliary drain, additional condensation will spill into a drain trap that is designed to allow it to drain from the system automatically without tripping the dry valve.
