RT19 Resin Trap - 1

25 years Vacmobile RT19 Enhanced resin trap & degassing pot 19 Litre (5 Gallon) vacuum reservoir Hassle free by design The RT19 resin trap and degassing vessel is primarily designed to collect excess resin from composite manufacturing processes, reducing the risk of resin entry to vacuum pumps and central vacuum lines. Built to last, the RT19 features mastic-free high integrity vacuum connections, a rugged vacuum pump connection block and a disposable resin catchpot. Optional features include vacuum regulation for process control and an optional heavy duty aluminium lid with a glass view port which allows the resin level to be checked at any time. With slightly modified vacuum connections, the RT19 may also be used for supplying degassed resin to parts being infused. Dispose of the catchpot – not the resin trap With the RT19 you buy the resin trap once, and then simply use a disposable 12 litre (3.1 US gallon) heat resistant cardboard catchpot or an 11 litre (2.9 US gallon) polyethylene resin degassing bucket as required. The RT19 is specifically designed to ensure all resin spatter is carefully contained within the disposable catchpot. This keeps the resin trap body clean and tidy, even with continuous use. The RT19 really is the low risk, low maintenance option for serious composites manufacturing professionals. Easy to clean, mastic free/high integrity vacuum connections, optional glass viewport 1. Rugged steel outer body 2. Quarter turn twist-lock handles 3. Blanking plugs for unused connections 4. Optional glass viewport 5. Clear, disposable PVC shield for underside of lid (on optional aluminium lid) 6. Silicone rubber anti-spatter guide tube 7. Very effective O-ring tubing glands. Seal on OUTSIDE of tube – out of the resin path. 8. End of tube completely unobstructed. Allows free resin exit 9. 12 litre (3.1 gal), heat resistant, disposable catchpot 10. Tortuous air exit from catchpot. Stops resin spatter and keeps trap body clean. 11. Rugged solid block manifold rigidly locked to trap body. Cannot loosen and leak. 12. Vacuum regulation valve with silencer 13. O-ring mounted vacuum gauge, can be rotated to face any direction 14. Vacuum pump connection on side of trap body, not on trap lid. Pump connection not disturbed when trap lid removed.

RT19 Resin Trap - 3

19 Litre (5 Gallon) vacuum reservoir Enhanced resin trap & degassing pot Connection gland options When used with vacuum tubing such as extruded polyethylene, Vacmobile O-ring sealed tubing connection glands deliver high integrity vacuum seals with remarkable ease. No mastic is required and resin exiting from the tube drops directly into the catchpot without any obstruction to flow. The connections are available to suit the following tubing OUTSIDE DIAMETERS (OD): • 9.5 to 10 mm – 3/8” nominal OD • 12.5 to 13 mm – 1/2” nominal OD • 15.5 to 16 mm – 5/8” nominal OD • 18.6 to 19.1 mm – 3/4”...

RT19 Resin Trap - 4

19 Litre (5 Gallon) vacuum reservoir Enhanced resin trap & degassing pot Optional silicone rubber hose kit The standard connection hose kit is a 1.2 metre (47”) length of wire reinforced tubing with male terminations to suit 19 mm (3/4”) Vacmobile tubing glands. Unusually for a vacuum hose of this diameter, the wire reinforced silicone rubber vacuum hose is extremely flexible, which simplifies hose fitting and trap positioning. The hose may be used at temperatures up to 200°C (400°F). The standard hose kit may be extended in multiples of 1.2 metres (47”) via standard joiners for 19 mm...
