Altecnic launches new dry trap tundish

Altecnic, part of the Caleffi Group, has launched a new Dry Trap Tundish. Unlike any other tundish on the market, the Altecnic Dry Trap Tundish boasts a patented anti-splash design with a transparent chamber that provides a visual indicator for discharge and is fully compliant with G3 building regulations. 

Ideal for installation with domestic central heating boilers, heat interface units (HIU), and hot water cylinders, the Altecnic Dry Trap Tundish is designed for the hot water discharge from pressure and temperature relief valves to pass safely. Unlike a conventional tundish, the Dry Trap Tundish allows system discharge to be piped directly into a drainpipe.

The Altecnic Dry Trap Tundish features a compact design and also prevents the need to install both a tundish and a dry trap as the internal stainless-steel spring-loaded disc mechanism prevents odours from escaping. The stainless-steel spring exerts only a small force to close the valve, therefore only a small weight of water is required to open the valve. As such the greater the flow of water the more the valve will open, acting as a visual fault indicator.

With installers in mind, the dry trap tundish has a transparent chamber to provide a clear indicator for discharge. Furthermore, the compact size makes it even more suitable for domestic installations, where space saving is essential.

Combining a tundish and dry trap, the spring-loaded disc, which acts as a single check valve, prevents smells and odours escaping from the tundish.

The Altecnic Dry Trap Tundish is KIWA Reg4, WRAS approved, G3 and EN1717 compliant, with the added peace-of-mind of Altecnic 5-year warranty. It comes in 15mm x 22mm connections supplied with compression ends, complying with BS EN 1252-2 for use with R250 (half hard) copper tube.

Gary Perry, Managing Director at Altecnic, commented: “When developing the Dry Trap Tundish, we wanted to create a product that was of the highest standard, whilst also considering the setback of space availability. We’re proud to be launching a unique, patented Dry Trap Tundish that is anti-splash, compact, and fully building regulations compliant. By combining two components, Altecnic’s Dry Trap Tundish gives installers the opportunity to save space and time on their domestic installs, without compromise.

“As standard with all Altecnic products, the new Dry Trap Tundish has been tested to meet the relevant regulations and complies with best practice, whilst also being supplied with a 5-year warranty for added peace of mind.”
