Abstract:
An orifice condensate trap (i.e. a condensate removal device (10) having a condensate drainage channel (26) with a constricted passage (30) therein) in which a magnet (50) is disposed upstream of the orifice to capture impurities, e.g. magnetic particles, suspended or otherwise carried in the condensable gas or condensate. The magnet may be used in tandem with a mechanical filter, e.g. strainer. The magnet may be formed as part of a cap or plug (48) for closing an access opening (36) opposite to an upstream opening of the constricted passage (30). For example, the plug (48) may be formed of magnetic material, e.g. a magnetic variant of stainless steel.
