Spirax Sarco Introduces New Pump Trap
BLYTHEWOOD, SC--Spirax Sarco has added the new APT14HC to its Automatic Pump Trap line. The APT14HC is engineered to eliminate condensate handling problems, including poor heat transfer, irregular temperature control, corrosion, noise and waterhammer, tube failure and high maintenance costs. It is designed to automatically collect and remove condensate the instant it forms in equipment such as process vessels, heat exchangers, heaters, vacuum and temperature controlled equipment.
The steam-powered APT14HC requires no electrical power, making it suitable for hazardous environments, and operates even in a vacuum. The compact pump trap is designed for use at a maximum temperature of 388°F (198°C) and a maximum pressure of 200 psig (14 barg). The higher capacity feature allows for a wide range of applications, up to 6,160 lb/hr (2,794 kg/hr) pumping and 19,800 lb/hr (8,981 kg/hr) trapping. The 8-in. filling head allows for convenient installation below low-mounted process equipment.
The APT14HC is pressure rated to PN16; standard features include an external motive supply strainer, 2-in. inlet and 1-1/2-in. outlet connections, a motive steam connection, an additional lifting eye on the cover, stainless steel internals and SG iron pressure envelope construction. Electroless nickel-plated (ENP) versions are also available.
