TLV: Steam Traps
December 13, 2004
The drainage of condensate from high-pressure superheated steam mains and turbines is a tortuous task. TLV's patented models, SS5NH (horizontal) and SS5VH (vertical), are designed specifically for those severe service applications, providing seal-tight shutoff and high reliability for extended performance. Significant benefits of the SS5H include: constant water seal and unique rotational seating design, which eliminates concentrated valve wear to ensure long life; three-point seating that ensures a steam-tight seal, even under no-load superheat conditions; excellent resistance to water hammer, with up to 1720 psig hydraulic shock rating and 0.004 diameters sphericity of the float; and more.
