Condensate Traps feature cleanable, transparent design.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for residential, commercial, and mini-split air conditioning equipment, EZ Traps® prevent introduction of unconditioned ambient air into airstream, and prevent energy loss due to conditioned air being expelled through drain line on positive pressure systems. Compliant with International Mechanical Code, waterless traps automatically drain bacteria-generating standing water and eliminate danger of clogs, dry trap, or freeze damage while providing all benefits of standard traps.

EZ Trap® Condensate Traps: a Cleanable Solution to Preventing Microbial-Laced Ambient Air Infiltration into Occupied Spaces

EZ Trap offers complete line of condensate traps, condensate overflow cutoff switches and other accessories that prevent unconditioned air from entering commercial, residential and mini-split a/c airstreams. Airtec Products Corp., Fall River, Mass., now offers the HVAC industry's only cleanable, "see the problem" transparent condensate traps for residential, commercial and minisplit air conditioning equipment. EZ Trap®, the pioneer and world leader in condensate trap technology, offers a cleanable condensate trap that prevents the introduction of unconditioned ambient air into the airstream, which reduces air conditioning efficiency in negative pressure systems. It also prevents energy loss due to conditioned air being expelled through the drain line on positive pressure systems. Additionally, microbial-laden air is prevented from entering occupied spaces through the drain line and air handler. EZ Trap features a transparent and easily cleanable PVC condensate trap in both standard "P" trap configuration and true "waterless" configurations that provide the benefits of a trap without the presence of standing water. All EZ Trap products comply with the longstanding International Mechanical Code that mandates a condensate drain line trap. The EZ Trap 100 and 200 Series features a variety of adaptable Schedule 40 1-inch and 3/4-inch-diameter crosses, tees and other fittings to accommodate any field installation challenges. EZ Trap's extensive selection range guarantees a condensate trap configuration for every air conditioning system brand and model. The newest EZ Trap additions are waterless traps for conventional split systems, commercial rooftop units and even minisplit units that feature a mechanical trapping method. The waterless traps automatically drain bacteria-generating standing water and eliminate the danger of clogs, dry trap or freeze damage while providing all of the benefits of a standard trap. Other features in the line include:

  • The 200 Series of SmartTrap(TM) kits with integral float switch overflow protection mounted in the trap and can be field-installed to activate a visual or audible warning alarm.
  • The 220 Series of micro-switch overflow cut-off switches.
  • The 300 Series UltraSwitch(TM)-the world's only self-evacuating electronic overflow switch-includes an integral mini pump that evacuates the drain pan, cuts power to the unit, continuously pumps the melting evaporator coil ice from the condensate pan and requires activating a manual reset to re-start the unit after troubleshooting.
  • The 600 Series of kits that provide a trap for the primary drain pan outlet to prevent infiltration of unconditioned air and a cut-off switch for the secondary drain pan outlet to provide overflow protection. EZ Trap offers a comprehensive selection, installation ease, aesthetics, performance and customer support all in one product line.
