This 3 oz. collection cup serves a variety of purposes in monitoring the integrity of fluid stored in tanks, gear boxes, and other equipment housings.  It connects to a drain port beneath or on the side of the reservoir.  Releasing fluid into the sediment bowl allows for the following:
  • Visual inspection of the fluid
  • Removal of water and contaminants that settle at the bottom of the reservoir
  • Sample collection for further analysis
The sediment bowl connects to a shut-off at the drain port of the reservoir being monitored.  Fluid is released into the bowl and can then be drained through the needle valve.  The valve is positioned off-center so that it can be oriented to the lowest point for horizontal installations.
The unit has a glass viewing area.  The needle valve is brass and seals are Viton.  The connection is ½” male NPT.  Solid aluminum endplates and mounting shank provide a sturdy framework.  It performs well where other plastic versions might crack at the mounting shank over extended use.

All materials used in construction of the sediment bowl are rated for use in temperatures of -10° to 300° F.  The lower temperature range should be limited to 33° F if there is a potential for the contents to freeze.  The overall height including the inlet and the drain valve is 4 29/32".  The glass viewing area is 2 1/4" high.  The diameter is 3 1/4".
