Water Cooled Traps

Water cooled traps are excellent at removing condensable gasses before they can damage or contaminate other components. They can extend preventative maintenance intervals and pump overhauls. Our two piece construction allows for easy cleaning and inspection. 

Water Cooled Traps Features

  • 1/4"OD 316L water coils
  • Drains, vents and quick disconnect water fitting options available
  • Internal baffles to maximize resident time
  • Right angle or coaxial body designs
  • Up to three water coils for improved cooling
Since its founding in 1962, Nor-Cal Products, Inc dba Pfeiffer Vacuum Valves & Engineering has been designing and building standard and custom foreline traps for the vacuum industry. These traps range in complexity from simple sealed coaxial traps designed to prevent oil backstreaming to the triple-pass water-cooled traps, which remove condensable gasses that contaminate mechanical pump oil or other parts of the system. Except for the permanently sealed one-piece body coaxial models, all Nor-Cal traps disassemble easily with an FKM O-ring and V-clamp. The two-piece body allows for easy removal for cleaning or replacement. The standard finish for all traps is beadblast. The electropolish finish is available on request.
