Thermodynamic Traps

Thermodynamic traps work on the difference in dynamic response to velocity change in flow of compressible and incompressible fluids. As steam enters, static pressure above the disc forces the disc against the valve seat. The static pressure over a large area overcomes the high inlet pressure of the steam. As the steam starts to condense, the pressure against the disc lessens and the trap cycles  
  • Ultramax Thermodynamic Air/Steam Traps discharge condensate intermittently with a clean, tight shut-off.
  • Able to withstand water-hammer, superheat, freezing, corrosive condensate and vibration.
  • Ideal for where there is no power socket available or no electrical equipment is permitted such as zone zero areas.
