Thermodynamic Steam Trap
In a steam line system, steam traps are indispensable for two reasons: 1.) Eliminate steam condensate. 2. Remove air and other non-condensable gases from the line. Condensate Removal Removing condensate from steam lines is essential for proper heat transfer and water hammer prevention. Removing air and non-condensable gases It is important to remove air or non-condensable gases from the steam system to prevent adverse effects on the heat transfer function. Non-condensable gases can dissolve in the condensate, causing acids and corroding piping systems.
