Thermodynamic Steam Traps

Thermodynamic DT32 disc steam traps are compact, lightweight and easy to install steam traps. They are excellent for high pressure systems, including steam tracing applications.

Features and benefits:

  • -Intermittent discharge.
  • -Unaffected by water-hammer and vibrations.
  • -Steam jacketed capsule (disc and cover set).
  • -Replaceable capsule.
  • -Built-in easy-to-clean strainer.


Bimetallic Steam Traps

BM-HC series bimetallic steam traps and air eliminators are simple and robust traps, recommended for large process applications. They can be supplied with several bimetallic regulators, achieving the requested flow rate. Connections are flanged as standard.

Features and benefits:

  • -Modulating discharge
  • -Discharges condensate below steam temperature.
  • -Excellent air discharge.
  • -Operates on superheated steam.
  • -Unaffected by water-hammer and vibrations.

Float and Thermostatic Steam Traps

FLT14I float and thermostatic (integral air vent) steam traps are designed for all types of low and high pressure steam heating and process equipment. Typical applications include unit heaters, heat exchangers, driers, jacketed vessels and any applications where continuous drainage is essential. Connections are female screwed or flanged for horizontal or vertical installation.

Features and benefits:

  • -Modulating discharge.
  • -Discharges condensate at steam temperature.
  • -Unaffected by sudden or wide load and pressure changes.
  • -Excellent air discharge (by thermostatic air vent).

Inverted Bucket Steam Traps

IB12 series inverted bucket steam traps are recommended for all services where the most important requirements are overall operating efficiency and long, trouble-free service life. They operate intermittently, either wide open or tightly closed, and are therefore best suited for service at medium and high steam pressures. Connections are female screwed for horizontal installation.

Features and benefits:

  • -Intermittent discharge.
  • -Discharges condensate at steam temperature.
  • -Unaffected by water hammer and vibrations.
  • -Easy to maintain.

Thermostatic Steam Traps

The TH21 series thermostatic steam traps and air eliminators are specifically designed for use on process equipment such as kettle cookers, sterilizers, food, chemical and laundry equipment. Connections are female screwed or flanged.

Features and benefits:

  • -Modulating discharge. Discharges condensate close to steam temperature.
  • -Thermostats for different sub cooling (5oK to 30oK).
  • -Excellent air discharge.
  • -Operates on moderate superheated steam.
  • -Built-in strainer.
