FDA400 Clean Steam Traps are used on clean steam applications as drip traps on piping runs as well as drainage for CIP/SIP systems and various process vessels. The FDA400 Series allows for a 90° connection on either the inlet or outlet capable of 360° orientation.
This trap contains a welded 316L stainless steel thermal element that expands when heated and contracts when cooled. When air and sub-cooled condensate are present, the trap is in an open discharge position. When steam reaches the trap, the element expands, closing the trap tightly.
