FTT Float & Thermostatic Ductile Stainless Steel Steam Traps

DRIP, PROCESS:  FTT Float & Thermostatic Ductile Stainless Steel Steam Traps with CF8M Stainless Steel Body and in-line pipe connections are used for the removal of condensate and air in HVAC and industrial process applications such as unit heaters, water heaters, pressing machines, heat exchangers and coils. They works same as FTT Series, however  the FTT Series have Max Operating Steam Pressure up to 300 PSIG but FTTS Series have it up to 225 PSIG.

  • Ductile Iron has a higher pressure and temperature rating and is more resistant to shock loads than cast Iron
  • All stainless steel internals with hardened seat and wear parts
  • In-line repairability is simplified by having all internals attached to the cover
  • Welded stainless steel thermostatic air vent resists shock from waterhammer. Live orifice air vent is available for superheated applications
  • Excellent air handling capability allows air to be discharged rapidly so steam can enter the system quickly during start-up
  • F&T traps discharge condensate immediately as it is formed (no condensate will back up into the system)

Description

FTT Float & Thermostatic Ductile Stainless Steel Steam Traps have Stainless Steel Bodies, All Stainless Steel Internals, 225 psig Operating Pressures.

These Steam traps are used where frequent System wash down is required or when rust and other surface corrosion cannot be tolerated such as in facilities used for Food and Beverage or Pharmaceutical production.

Float and thermostatic traps contain a float and seat mechanism with a separate thermostatic element which work together to remove both condensate and air from the steam system. The float, which is attached to a valve, rises and opens the valve when condensate enters the trap. This allows the condensate to discharge. Air is discharged through the thermostatic air vent to the outlet side of the trap. Steam entering the trap causes the thermostatic element to expand, closing the air vent and trapping the steam.
