Dilution Trap

Chemical and solvent resistant polypropylene. Essential for protection of waste water systems

The purpose ofDilution_traap.jpg the trap is to allow for dilution of any chemicals with water prior to the waste stream entering the main drain by holding the chemicals in the bowl. Any neutralisation reactions between acids and bases will also take place in the bowl thereby protecting the rest of the drainage.

The 1½'' BSP inlet is suitable for connection straight to the outlet on Novalab drip cups, or to the polypropylene chemical resistant plug and waste supplied with Novalab epoxy resin sinks or circular polypropylene drip cups.

The top inlet pipe is height adjustable for easy connection to the waste outlet. The bottom bowl unscrews for emptying and cleaning.

More info....

Polypropylene has a number of very useful characteristics including excellent chemical resistance and the fact that almost nothing will stick to it. However, this does mean that most joints involving polypropylene are mechanical in nature. This is the same with polypropylene sinks, which cannot be glued or bonded to any bench top using standard sealants or adhesives. For this reason the sinks are usually supplied with a gasket and, when under mounting sinks, we recommend the use of either an aluminium strengthening strip under the sink flange, or multiple screws directly through the flange. Any additional silicon used as a sealant may stick to the bench but will not stick to the polypropylene.
