M.O.C., BODY, CAP, DISC. PLUG :
Streamlined & compact.
All stainless steel construction for corrosive resistance.
High resistance to waterhammer.
Long life due to hardened working parts.
Only one moving part, therefore minimal maintenance.
Efficient operation under varying loads and pressures.
Discharges condensate at steam temperature, to prevent waterlogging.
All mating parts have metal to metal seating thereby eliminating sealing material.
Non - IBR trap can also be supplied with blow-down valve screwed directly below the strainer unit.
Unions or flanges installed on both sides of the trap permits easy maintenance.
The trap should be so placed that it is directly below and as close as possible to the equipment being drained.
It is advisable to install the trap with the disc in horizontal position instead of vertical position to ensure maximum life.
Sight-glasses should be fitted on the outlet, away from the trap for observing its performance.
Horizontal piping to the trap should be such that it facilitates gravity drainage.
Have a collecting leg of a larger pipe size with a dirt pocket before a trap inlet.
Have a bypass line around the trap, where the equipment cannot be shut-down. A standby trap in the bypass line allows uninterrupted service.
It is advisable to have a larger return line to prevent back pressure build-up.
