The air conditioning condensate pumps collect and evacuate the condensate produced by the air conditioner unit; each condensate pump is used next to those AC units where, due to specific ...positioning, gravity cannot cause the condensate water to be completely discharged from the air conditioning via the condensate hose. In this case, a support pump, based on centrifugal technology, is needed in order to pump and drain the water so that no water leaks inside and dangerous molds form.
Designed to operate intermittently, an air conditioning condensate pump normally includes a collection tank in which condensate (condensed liquid captured) can accumulate; when the water level reaches a certain level in the tank, a float switch activates the pump and the water is discharged through a thin condensate drain pipe to the main condensate drain hose (air conditioning exhaust pipe).
The air conditioning condensate pump is especially needed for climate units that operate mainly on cooling, as the condensation process usually takes place when air passes through the coil of the cold evaporator during the process of cooling the air in air-conditioned rooms. As a result, moisture that accumulates on the coil is then drained into the drain pan (condensate drain tray) which is placed under the coils. Mai mult
