Spirax Sarco updates float and thermostatic steam trap series for high capacity and pressure

Spirax Sarco is pleased to announce the redesign of the 3” and 4” FT450 steam trap series. This float and thermostatic trap series has been improved with a new fabricated mechanism suitable for the oil and petrochemical, hydrocarbon processing, chemical processing, pulp and paper, and power generating industries where both high pressure and high process flows are required.

The 3” and 4” FT450 mechanical ball float trap has a body and cover made of cast carbon steel thus increasing the traps longevity and allowing maximum system efficiency. The series piping connections are horizontal inline and the body incorporates mounting legs with drill pads. The trap features a balanced pressure thermostatic air vent available for maximum temperatures of 572°F. All internals are stainless steel and coated with UCT EXO nickel-boron to give long lasting durability. Both the head and seat are made of hardened stainless steel and with the coating prevents sticking and resists build-up of precipitants which can cause leakage. This trap series has an infinite turn down ratio over a wide range of flow and can operate from zero psig up to 450 psig steam pressures.

The standard offering is available with National Pipe Thread, socket weld and flanged connection.
