Mechanical, Orifice, Thermostatic, Thermodynamic and Clean Steam Traps
Nicholson industrial steam traps are suited for condensate systems, main steam systems, process control and process heating. The product line includes mechanical, orifice, thermostatic, thermodynamic and clean steam designs. The mechanical steam traps have the fluid-level and venting capabilities of a thermostatic trap, says the company, and are available for pressures up to 650 psig. The cast-iron or cast-steel traps operate in maximum temperatures up to 1382°F (750°C) and are offered in sizes ranging from 0.5 to 2. The DFA and DUA orifice steam traps provide consistent condensate removal via devices that discharge air, condensate and other noncondensable gases with minimal live steam loss. Handling pressures up to 3000 psig, orifice steam traps are available in stainless steel or cast steel with maximum temperature range of 1562°F (850°C). Thermodynamic steam traps accommodate applications through 600 psi. Clean steam designs provide a high purity steam that is sterile and pyrogen free, making the traps suited for use in pharmaceutical, biotechnical, electronics, food, and cosmetics applications.
