Steam trap

June 8, 2012

Constructed to withstand corrosion from clean and pure steam applications, the Spirax Sarco BTS7.1 stainless steel clean steam trap is pressure rated to ASME standards. It removes condensate from clean steam systems with minimal backup, making it suitable for the food and beverage industries. The self-draining trap operates close to steam saturation temperatures and vents air to ensure full sterilization. Its smooth-surface finish reduces the risk of bacterial growth and product blockage. Available with a tri-clamp option, the steam trap is suitable for 1/2- and 3/4-in. connections.
