Steam Trap Type
   Thermostatic Steam Traps      Thermostatic trap valves open and close with the expansion and contraction of temperature-sensitive elements. These traps operate on the difference in temperature between steam, the cooler condensate and air.
   Your choices are...         
   Balanced Pressure Trap       Balanced pressure steam traps open and close via the expansion and contraction of temperature-sensitive elements that respond to the lower temperatures created by the condensate and noncondensable gases in the trap.  The operating unit within the trap, a pressure-balanced disc or bellows, is filled with a liquid having a saturation temperature slightly below that of water.  
   Bimetallic Trap       Bimetallic traps have a metal element with the proper coefficient of expansion for the application. 
   Pinch Trap       Pinch traps use self-regulating action. The pinching modulator begins to automatically close off flow as the wax around the modulator expands with the passage of hot condensate.  As the condensate builds up and cools, the wax around the modulator contracts allowing the orifice to open and create flow. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Mechanical Steam Traps      Buoyancy operated based on the difference in density between steam and condensate.
   Your choices are...         
   F&T Trap       Float and thermostatic traps (F&T) are used for draining steam equipment and as drip traps.  As the name implies this trap is a combination of two separate devices, a float trap and a thermostatic vent.  It consists of a chamber with a discharge valve at the bottom.  The valve is actuated by a float and lever.  The float is usually spherical in shape to resist the pressure of the steam.  The thermostatic vent remains open until the trap heats up.  It vents allow a large amount of air to pass.  A variation of this trap has been called a variable orifice trap.  This trap has a free-floating float that acts as the closing mechanism. 
   Bucket Trap       A bucket trap is built around a floating bucket that has its open side facing downward.  Steam entering the trap is fed into the bucket causing it to float to the top of the surrounding pool of condensate and close the discharge valve.  When only condensate enters the trap, the steam in the bucket condenses and the bucket sinks, opening the discharge valve.  
   Variable Orifice Trap       A variable orifice trap is a combination of two separate devices, a float trap and a thermostatic vent.  It consists of a chamber with a discharge orifice at the bottom.  The float responds to the amount of condensate and rises and lowers.  When it rises it opens the entry to the orifice and allows condensate drainage.

   Kinetic Steam Traps      These traps operate based on the different flow characteristics of steam and condensate.
   Your choices are...         
   Disc Trap (Thermodynamic)       Disc traps are used as drip traps for low steam loads, such as steam tracing lines.  Disc traps consist of a flat disc resting on a smaller circular seat.  The disc is enclosed in a chamber above the seat were it moves around freely.  Condensate or steam enters the trap through the center of the seat, flows over the seat, and discharges through ports located under the perimeter of the disc.  When condensate is present, it lifts the disc and exits.  When steam enters the trap, the trap snaps shut. 
   Piston / Impulse Trap       Piston or impulse traps open and close the valve port based on pressure. 
   Orifice Trap       Orifice traps are simply holes between the steam main and the condensate system. Orifice traps are sized such that they release as much condensate as enters from the load.  There are no mechanical parts to fail.  These traps can only be used in applications with a constant load. If the load decreases, the liquid seal is lost and steam passes through the orifice. If the load increases, the orifice will be undersized and the condensate will back up into the equipment.

   Other Steam Trap Types       
   Your choices are...         
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary steam traps. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Superheat       Traps that can handle the added temperature encountered in superheat applications.  Superheated steam is the temperature of steam above the saturated steam temperature.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Radiator Application       These traps are designed specifically for radiator applications. They are usually thermostatic type steam traps and operate on the difference in temperature between steam, cooled condensate and air.  
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Steam Trap Connection
   Connection Style       
   Your choices are...         
   Socket Weld / Tube       The steam trap fitting can be mechanically welded. 
   Flanged       The steam trap has a mounting flange.  A mating flange is required in the piping to mate to.  Flanges are typically held together by a series of bolts. 
   Threaded       The steam trap is supplied with a threaded fitting to connect piping.  Typically, a tapered female thread is the standard.  
   Clamp       The steam trap fitting is a clamp. 
   Ferrule       The steam trap fitting is a ferrule or compression fitting. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary connection type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Steam Trap Body
   Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Brass       Brass comes with good strength, excellent high temperature ductility and reasonable cold ductility, good conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, good bearing properties and low magnetic permeability. 
   Iron - Cast       The term "cast iron" refers not to a single material, but to a family of materials whose major constituent is iron, with important trace amounts of carbon and silicon. Cast irons are natural composite materials whose properties are determined by their microstructures - the stable and metastable phases formed during solidification or subsequent heat treatment. The major micro structural constituents of cast irons are: the chemical and morphological forms taken by carbon, and the continuous metal matrix in which the carbon and/or carbide are dispersed. 
   Iron - Ductile       Ductile iron retains cast iron's machinability and corrosion-resistance, and provides additional strength, toughness, and ductility. Although its chemical properties are similar to those of cast iron, ductile iron incorporates significant casting refinements, additional metallurgical processes, and superior quality control. 
   Steel - Forged       A forged iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable when under suitable conditions, and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content.  
   Steel - High Carbon       High carbon, hard drawn steel is used when resistance to abrasion and impact is required. 
   Steel - Stainless       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high-pressure ratings. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary material.
