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 Vatac 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 Vatac inverted bucket trap wears, its tight seal actually improves. The valve and seat of the Vatac 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
» Integral strainer
» Optional blow down valve
