ThermaPhase unit is a thermostatically controlled, electrically heated evaporation unit that separates air compressor condensate from spent compressor lubricant. The condensate water leaves the unit as atmospheric steam and the lubricant is periodically drained from the unit.
The unit uses special low-density heating elements for long life and low maintenance. The heating elements are staged to go on sequentially. (Time of sequence between elements is variable but fixed by design.) When the maximum operating temperature is reached, the heating elements automatically turn off until the temperature falls below the boiling point of 212º F, and at this time the heating elements will restart. This system minimizes power surges, helps balance the load and reduces power consumption. There is a low level cut-off switch which provides protection for the heating elements.
