When steam flows through pipes, heat losses are inevitable. This cooling causes condensate to form.
The presence of condensate prevent optimum heat transfer and can also lead to pipe erosion and water hammer. To enable your steam systems to work efficiently, you should install steam traps to discharge condensate that builds up due to heat loss and process demand.
For process system and boiler operators, the cost of energy to produce steam is a key driver. Durable steam traps that work without loss of steam will help to keep these costs as low as possible.
GESTRA's steam traps are energy efficient and reliable. They satisfy the most demanding quality requirements, are easy to use and they minimize maintenance time.
When selecting your steam trap to achieve the best results, there are some key factors you need to consider to choose the right type:
