Most of you know that steam traps are used to discharge condensate and non condensable gases with a negligible consumption or loss of livesteam. Most steam traps are nothing more than automatic valves. They open, close or modulate automatically.
However there are several different types all performing unique functions. In the CS Knowledge Center we highlight six different traps and show how they work. The traps include: balanced-pressure thermostatic, float and thermostatic, inverted bucket, thermodynamic disc, TVS 800, and two bolt steam trap connector blocks.
