Next-generation connectors for steam-trap installations

By Chemical Engineering |

Traditional steam-trapping assemblies often require the plant to be shut down for new traps to be installed, taking significant time and reducing production output. The new PC3000 & PC4000 pipeline connectors (photo), with single or double isolation, allow for steam traps to be installed without shutting down the process. These pipeline connectors are appropriate for the petroleum, petrochemical and specialty chemical industries. They are suitable for manifold applications where steam traps are used on tracing and main-line drainage. Some of the features and benefits include: a forged body rated for ASME 600 that is suitable up to 800°F; a fully shrouded piston valve stem, which reduces the potential for corrosion; and a standard fitted strainer, which protects the steam trap from debris entrained in the condensate. — Spirax Sarco, Inc., Blythewood, S.C.
