Thermodynamic Steam Traps operate on the basis of the Bernoulli principle, depending on the relationship between the velocity and the pressure exerted by the condensate and steam inside the steam trap.
They have only one moving part – the disc.
Due to their compact design and cost effectiveness thermodynamic steam traps are widely used in applications where the condensate must be removed immediately from steam lines and steam equipment. They discharge he condensate near the saturation temperature. The traps may operate up to a back pressure of 80% of the inlet pressure, but for smooth operation it is recommended that the back pressure does not exceed 50% of the inlet pressure. Thermodynamic steam traps discharge the condensate intermittently.
All steam traps are equipped with a hardened stainless steel disc and seat. After the lapping process all the discs surfaces are controlled individually before releasing them for use in steam traps. These features and very high and severe quality standards for the whole production process give MIYAWAKI’s thermodynamic steam traps a long and reliable service life.
Light to medium condensate loads:
- steam tracing
- Steam main drips
- Small heat exchangers
- Unit heaters, sterilizer
- Many other applications in the petrochemical, chemical, textile, food, pharmaceutical and further industries.
Series SV Thermodynamic Steam Traps with inbuilt bypass are designed for special applications in the food, pharmaceutical or other industries or laundry applications where costs and spare must be saved.
