I have only ever had to clean out sediment traps once in my career. It was for a greenhouse complex that had propane. Their consumption was about 30,000 gallons a year and we put a vaporizer in the system. It turns out that the driver was not draining the scrubber every time he delivered and the system picked up a dose of "heavy ends" or the oily bits of sludge that can occur when you use heat to vaporize propane. I spent two weeks in winter at that complex every day just taking apart sediment traps and emptying the gunk out so our customer wouldn't lose his plants.

So the answer that it is very rare to have to clean them is pretty accurate.
