Thermostatic Steam Traps

Thermostatic steam traps operate on steam’s temperature difference from cooled condensate and air. Steam increases the pressure inside the thermostatic element, causing the trap to close. As condensate and non-condensable gases back up in the cooling leg, the temperature begins to drop, and the thermostatic element contracts and opens the valve.

he operation principle for these traps utilizes the difference in the temperatures of steam and condensate. Also known as 'Temperature Control Traps' or 'Balanced Pressure Traps.'

Operating Pressure Range: 0.01 - 4.6 MPaG
Operating Temperature Range: 0 - 350 °C

Thermostatic Steam Traps are available with balanced-pressure bellows or wafer-type elements and are constructed in a variety of materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel and bronze. These traps are used on applications with very light condensate loads. Read more
