This steam trap is useful device to evacuate condensate from steam line.it has two type of flanged and screwed ,its working attributes are : size varies from DN32 to DN50 or (1 1/4" to 2"), PN16 nominal pressure, 150/125/300 working class and220°C/250°C or 428 ˚F /482 ˚F working temperature . This steam trap is produced base on DIN or ANSI standards.
In steam line and its related equipment, steam creates condensate in effect of contacting with environment and exchange of heat .This condensate causes to water hammering in line and decrease temperature of system, because of this steam cannot move in tubes appropriately. To avoid mentioned problems and increase efficiency of system and also to transfer maximum thermal force, this condensate must be exited of the line immediately and guided to condensate tanks. Steam trap is useful device to do this .There is a spherical floater inside the trap, by gathering condensate, this floater is floated. A rod has been attached to floater and depending on condensate measure, it gradually opens or closes the orifice .this valve is double plug, so transient alterations dose not effect on it. This kind of steam trap are especially useful for those situations which producing condensate is permanent or too much, such as energy transfer systems like heat exchangers and coil containers. This trap has a thermostat which conducts extra air and gases out of system and also this thermostat discharges condensate if any damage is occurred for floating ball.
Type FT-10 steam traps can be installed horizontally. Flow direction must be like as arrow direction on the body. Floater thermostatic steam traps must be installed in such a way that it's floating ball and lever stand horizontally. In this way, arrow direction on the name plate will be upside-down.
