Inverted Bucket Steam Traps
They are extremely robust and resistant to waterhammer.
They are extremely robust and resistant to waterhammer. Thanks to this feature, they are mostly used to remove condensate in equipment located in areas with external and internal risk of contamination, as well as in steam lines with the continuous presence of waterhammer.
Advantages: robust construction to withstand waterhammer conditions. They can be used with overheated steam with a retention valve at the inlet.
Disadvantages: they are not good to vent air and therefore need additional air vents. They can lose the condensate seal and release steam under sudden pressure changes. A check valve at the inlet may avoid this.
Type of steam trap: Inverted Bucket
Method of discharge: intermitent. Hermetic closure between discharges. Tendency to modulate under lower flows.
Discharge temperature: At saturation temperature.
