Only a Float & Thermostatic steam trap can drain condensate as quickly as it forms while at the same time removing air and other non-condensible gases which may be present at start-up or collect during operation. Condensate never backs up into the steam space; gases collect in the top of the trap and are removed through a separate integral air vent. Spirax Sarco offers the world’s most complete line of Float & Thermostatic steam traps with cast iron, ductile iron, carbon steel and stainless steel bodies for steam pressures up to 465 psi and condensate loads up to 300,000 lb/h.
These extremely versatile traps work efficiently on both light and heavy condensate loads. Although compact in size, their discharge capacity is high and continuous, ensuring maximum heat transfer.
