The actual definition of a steam trap has been the subject of debate for some years, with some literature suggesting that an orifice device is actually a steam trap. In our view, a steam trap is either a mechanical, thermostatic or thermodynamic device that allows condense to be removed from a process steam system or heat exchanger with the minimum loss of steam energy. Mechanical steam traps from our own perspective are Free Float Steam Traps from TLV; this range covers process and line drain applications and arrived on the world market in 1966. Since then many improvements have been made to this range which includes the X Element for rapid air removal and later bimetal air removal on some steam traps including the latest line drain technology.
