Spirax Sarco Announces FTC80-FB Ball Float Steam Trap
A Steam Trap for high capacity and high pressure steam process applications
Blythewood, SC - Spirax Sarco is pleased to announce the release of the FTC80-FB ball float steam trap series. This trap has been designed as a premium solution for process applications in the chemical, hydrocarbon processing, and pulp and paper industries where pressures can be as high as 1160 psig.
The FTC80-FB carbon steel series has a body and cover made of cast steel with all socket weld connections. This series is self modulating to provide soft and continuous discharge, which helps to maintain stable process conditions. It has a plugged bottom side drain connection that can be used for cleaning out or a freeze protection with a manual drain valve. All internals are stainless steel and have a high capacity single seat mechanism which has an infinite turn down ration on both pressure and flow extending the service life of the trap. The main valve assembly has a tight shut-off under no-load conditions, even if the water seal is lost which prevents steam wastage. A fixed bleed air venting device is supplied to prevent air locking of the trap on startup. Every trap is 100% steam tested at the factory to guarantee performance.
The standard offering is available in 1-1/2" and 2" pipe connections, which are direct inline with no change in elevation. The flow direction is right-to-left with a removable strainer screen to the front of the trap that covers 50% more surface area to ensure trouble free service.
