...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 the F&T trap has been called a variable orifice trap; this trap has a free-floating float...

...valve allows the ball to "float" and therefor find its own center. That means the spherical surface of the ball is in perfect conformance with the circular shape of the downstream Teflon seat. The contact pressure between the ball and the seat is uniform, all the way around the sealing circle....
