The FTE/FTES Series float and thermostatic steam traps are used in HVAC and on industrial process equipment with very high load requirements. These high capacity steam traps are typically used on reboilers, absorption chillers, large air handling coils, large heat exchangers, and other large process equipment. Float and thermostatic steam traps have a float and thermostatic element that work together to remove both condensate and air from the steam system. The float, which is attached to a valve, opens when condensate enters the trap. Air is discharged through the thermostatic air vent to the outlet side of the trap. The thermo- static air vent closes when steam enters the trap.
