Typical Applications

The IB1030 Series inverted bucket stream trap are used in drip application to remove condensate from steam mains and steam supply lines, For drip application, the smaller sized units have an adequate capacity. The discharge orifice of the inverted bucket trap is mounted at the top of the trap body which makes them less susceptible to clogging from dirt and debris when compared to other trap types. Since IB traps have poor air-handling capacity, they are only recommended for process applications such as united heaters and laundry equipment, where discharging air during system start-up is not a critical factor. F&T traps are the preferred choice for systems where air MUST be quickly discharged.
