Steam Trap Innovation
Draining of condensate from process equipment and heat exchangers.
Traditional float controlled steam traps fail due to:
- Dirt that causes the trap to leak or plug.
- Pressure surges resulting in water hammer that damages the internal components of the steam trap.
The RIFOX steam trap is a highly reliable – install it and forget it- device. This modulating float controlled steam trap senses the density difference between steam and condensate. Increasing condensate level opens and decreasing condensate level closes the outlet using a modulating rotary slide valve mechanism.
This unique design eliminates common steam trap performance issues. It is not affected by pressure fluctuations and can handle surge loads of condensate, eliminating the likelihood of water hammer. Dirt particles are automatically discharged preventing leakage and plugging.
The Pearl Trap
Analyzes, detects and removes contaminated condensate.
Condensate can become contaminated through process leaks, corrosion, or boiler carry-over.
Returning contaminated condensate back to the boiler can result in:
- Upset boiler operation
- Reduced boiler efficiency
- Complications with boiler water treatment
- Maintenance issues in the steam circuit
- System downtime
The Pearl Trap is a proprietary technology that uses a combination of electronic sensors and intelligent programming to detect and discharge contaminated condensate.
This inline monitoring system ensures that only high quality condensate is returned to the boiler.
