Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/109436
Kind Code:
The present invention relates to a ball float trap that allows efficient discharge of condensate water produced by condensation of water vapor or humid air, without a leakage of vapor or air in vapor of a boiler or an air system such as an air compressor. The present invention provides a ball float trap including: a housing and a housing plate fastened to each other and defining an internal space; housing plugs disposed at a side on the housing and connected with pipes to allow condensate water to flow into the internal space; a discharge port formed at a side of the housing plate to discharge the condensate water in the internal space to the outside; a ball float disposed in the internal space and moving up/down with the level of the condensate water in the internal space; a rotary body connected with the ball float and having a discharge channel opening/closing to discharge the condensate water with a change in position of the ball float; and a discharge guide having an internal channel for guiding the condensate water to the rotary body, in which a ball valve that is rotated by the ball float is disposed in the rotary body and a shutoff hole having a diameter corresponding to the diameters of the internal channel of the discharge guide and the discharge channel is formed in the ball valve. Therefore, it is possible to reduce the possibility of clogging with foreign substances, because the discharge channel for condensate water fully opens.
