The FT600 Series high-pressure float and thermostatic steam traps are primarily used on industrial process applications. The excellent air handling capabilities of float and thermostatic traps make them a better choice than bucket traps for applications requiring quick system start-up. These traps have in-line pipe connections. Used in chemical plants and petrochemical refineries on reboilers, heat exchangers, and other critical process applications. Model FT601 is identical to FT600 except body material is 316 SS. 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.
