Water-Trap with extra fine particle filter
model WT 20.5
- Secure protection of the gas analyser from condensate and extra fine dust
- Low costs for reliable safety
The Water-Trap is installed directly in front of the gas analyser in the piping. If the upstream gas processing (cooler, perestaltic pump, dust filter and the like) fails, the Water-Trap uses its semi-permeable membrane with SUN-C coating to protect the gas analyser.
The diaphragm separates gases from condensate and extra fine dust. If it is fully filled, the gas flow will be interrupted. An alarm is indicated via the upstream flowmeter with monitoring (refer to sample applications).
The Water-Trap is also known as a “Police filter”
Additional information from experience:
If the filter element, of the dust filter located in the gas processing is changed, particles are consistently dissolved and directed into the analyser. The downstream Water-Trap prevents this contamination as well with its diaphragm pore size of 0.1 μm.

Suitable for the following applications:
- Emission measurements with fossil fuels
- Waste incineration plants
- Ambient air monitoring
- Silo monitoring
- Heat treatments
- Cement, glass, steel, paper industries
- Combustion engines
Not suitable for the following applications:
Condensate with aromatic hydrocarbons, e.g. oils and fuels in refinery process gases. The models 20.82 E and the model 20.83 E XL with their oil-block membrane and coalescence filters have been designed for this.
Protection from dust:
The Water-Trap shows severe contamination of dust. The diaphragm with its pore size of 0.1 μm retains even the finest dusts.

The analyser is protected in case of failure of the cooling system (cooler, perestaltic pump) Another Water-Trap can be used for protecting the gas processing.
Sample application 2: TOC measurement
The analyser is protected in case of failure of the cooling system (cooler, perestaltc pump).
Sample application 3: Strip systems
In case of a clogged flow, the HC-FID is protected from harmful water.
