Float and thermostatic steam traps contain a float valve mechanism which modulates to discharge condensate continuously at steam temperature, while non-condensable gases are released by a separate internal balanced pressure thermosatic air vent. Stainless steel internal parts can be serviced without disturbing the piping connections.
- Air heating coils
- Heat exchangers
- Steam main drip stations
- Small process equipment, particularly when controlled by a modulating temperature control valve
