    The desiccant dehumidifier I am using needs to be vented to outside air.

    It has a 40mm exhaust which can be plumbed into standard waste pipe. What is the best method to make a condensate trap so that I can duct it to a sink or perhaps a plasterers bucket instead?

    Trying to dry a floor but there are no nearby windows that open

    Not quite sure of what it is you actually want but sounds like something you need for a MVHR unit. That generates condensate and Building regs require a condensate trap in line before discharge. This is something that might be useful. Search for MVHR condensate trap see if that will do.
    Yeah that's the type of thing I need but I need to 'encourage' condensation if that makes sense?

    So maybe vent the outlet to very long run of pipe? Or through some kind of chiller ?
