Steam Trap and Steam Equipment

What is a steam trap? The steam trap is an authomatic valve that can distinguish between steam and condensate. This result can be achieved in different ways each one based on a different operating principle. A universal steam trap does not yet exist since the operating conditions are widely different.

Below the three main cathegories:

 

Mechanical traps

1. Float type

2. Inverted bucket type

Thermostatic traps

1. Pressure balanced

2. Bi-metal type

Thermodynamic traps

1. Disc type

Sight glasses

In some cases it is desirable to have the possibility of visually checking the steam trap's behaviour, particularly if the condensate is discharged into a recuperation line. To this end it is useful to install a Sight Glasses, in which the observer can distinguish between the passage of condensate and live steam.

It should be pointed out that condensate Sight Glasses should always be mounted up-stream of the trap and must therefore be constructed to withstand the line pressure. Mounting a Sight Glasses down-stream of the steam trap is a frequently occurring mistake, which leads to wrong conclusions, since at this point the piping contains necessarily large quantities of flash steam, which cannot be distinguish from live steam.
