Inverted Bucket Steam Trap

The inverted bucket is the most reliable steam trap operating principle known. The heart of its simple design is a unique leverage system that multiplies the force provided by the bucket to open the valve against pressure. Since the bucket is open at the bottom, it resists damage from water hammer, and wear points are heavily reinforced for long life. The inverted bucket has only two moving parts-the valve lever assembly and the bucket. That means no fixed points, no complicated linkage. Nothing to stick, bind or clog.
The inverted bucket steam traps open and close based on the difference in density between condensate and steam-the inverted bucket principle. They open and close gently, minimizing wear. This simple fact means that inverted buckets are subject to less wear than some other types of traps. In fact, as an inverted bucket trap wears, its tight seal actually improves. The valve and seat of the trap provide essentially line contact resulting in a tight seal because the entire closing force is concentrated on one narrow seating ring.
Near continuous condensate discharge with tight shut-off. Minimal back-up of condensate ensures maximum plant efficiency.
Deep water-seal to protect against the possibility of steam loss.
Suitable for superheat conditions when fitted with internal inlet check valve
Simple and robust construction to guarantee long life against water hammer and vibration
Stainless steel internals are attached to the cover for ease of maintenance
Intergral strainer
Optional blow down valve
