Spirax Sarco's line of universal steam trap strainer connectors offer BDV3 blowdown valves. When used with standardized, universal-type steam traps, the swivel-type connectors constitute a complete and compact trap station with NPT, socket weld or 1/2-in., 3/4-in. and 1-in. flanged connections. The trap station, rated to 600 psig at 750°F, is compatible with the company's universal thermodynamic balanced-pressure, inverted-bucket, float and thermostatic and bimetallic steam traps. The universal design enables the trap and its components to be removed and replaced without disturbing the piping. The valves are replaceable as a complete unit.
