MALVERN, PA, February 3, 2021 —AGF Manufacturing is excited to introduce their COLLECTANDRAIN Self-Maintaining and Automatic Auxiliary drains. The Model 5450 Self-Maintaining Auxiliary Drain and the Model 5500 Automatic Auxiliary Drain are the latest in their line of heated auxiliary drain cabinets and include all the benefits of the original Model 5400. Model 5450 features the ability to self-maintain the drain level and allow for better-regulated maintenance. Model 5500 includes a fully automatic mode that triggers an electronic draining sequence.
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 new 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.
The Model 5500 goes beyond that to provide full automation. A programmable logic control (PLC) allows for fully automatic emptying of the auxiliary drain. Set the Model 5500 to automatically empty when the drain is full or wait for the unit to send an alert to the Fire Control Panel or Building Automation System and empty it with the push of an on-site or remote button.
