Low Pressure Manual Drip Trap – 246 Series

The 246 Series Low Pressure Drip Traps are designed for the collection and safe manual removal of condensate from gas.


The Varec Biogas 246 Series Drip Traps are designed for the manual collection and safe removal of condensate from gas. Condensate removal from gas piping systems is necessary to protect piping and equipment from possible damage caused by corrosion or water hammer. In addition, water lying in low spots in the pipe can restrict gas flow resulting in increased pressure drop. Varec Biogas drip traps should be installed at all low points in horizontal pipe runs for convenient removal of accumulated condensate.

The Series 246 Drip Trap is suitable for working pressures up to 5 psig (34.5 kPa). For systems with higher pressure ratings, see the  Varec Biogas 247 Series High Pressure Drip Traps.


The Varec Biogas 246 Series Drip Traps are designed to prevent gas from escaping while draining. The disc, ports, and “O” ring seals are positioned to block gas before opening the drain outlet ensuring that gas does not escape. Simple rotation of the 246 Series handle allows accumulated condensate in the drip trap reservoir to be drained manually. The disc position ensures that when the trap is draining, the inlet port is blocked.
