Many factors influence how well a steam trap can do its job getting condensate, air, and carbon dioxide out of the steam system as quickly as they accumulate. If a trap does not match the application, improperly sized or installed incorrectly, your steam system won’t get maximum value from a trap … no matter how good the trap itself is!

When properly integrated into the system, however, a steam trap will provide:

 
arr Minimal steam loss
arr Long life and dependable operation
arr Corrosion resistance
arr Air venting
arr Carbon dioxide venting
arr Operation against back pressure
arr Freedom from dirt problems
 

TLV Steam Traps

The TLV Free Float Steam Trap

TLV Free Float Steam Traps revolutionized fluid control technology. More than 30 years have passed since TLV introduced the free float concept to the steam industry. Since then, TLV’s Free Float Traps and other innovative technologies have enabled users to achieve exceptional performance in facilities worldwide.

The failure of mechanical steam traps usually corresponds to their number of moving parts. Free Float Traps have only one moving part – the Float. Compared to complex mechanical traps Free Float traps provide fewer failures, longer service life, and increased process efficiency.

The First Choice for Process Efficiency – the Reasons are Simple

The TLV Free Float adjusts quickly to changes in condensate flow, ensuring rapid discharge and maximum process efficiency. It is unaffected by back pressure and ideal wherever condensate is recovered. The precision ground float provides an infinite number of contact surfaces with the valve seat ensuring little wear and a long reliable life. The reasons to choose a TLV Free Float trap include: 
 
arr Process Efficiency
arr Energy Conservation
arr Long Life
arr Integral Strainer
arr Improved Air Venting

TLV Thermodyne Steam Traps

Designed for top performance and durability, the Thermodyne effectively drains steam mains, branches, and tracer lines to keep your plant operating at peak efficiency. The following unique features make the TLV Thermodyne trap the world’s most efficient thermodynamic disc steam trap:

   
 
Bimetal Air Vent Ring

To reach full operating efficiency, systems must purge air and condensate from steam lines. Conventional traps require manual blow down with bypass valves. The bimetal ring vents traps at start-up and prevents air binding without the use of bypass valves.

 
Jacketed Pressure Chamber

The air or steam jacketed pressure chamber prevents no-load actuation and chattering from radiant heat loss by insulating the trap from ambient temperatures -- conserving steam and prolonging the life of the disc and seat.

 
Lapped Disc

Conventional valve discs are round ground or even slit to prevent air binding and waste steam by leaking and no-load actuation. With the bimetal ring, the valve disc can be lapped instead of ground and mirror polished to a high tolerance. The resulting tight seal saves steam and lengthens the operation cycle providing an extended service life.

TLV Balanced Pressure Thermostatic Steam Traps

TLV’s L-Series Thermostatic traps have a patented nickel based alloy steel diaphragm X-element designed to Fail Open and protect against unwanted condensate accumulation. TLV traps are manufactured with high quality to ensure excellent performance and life. However, failure of any mechanical device is inevitable and the consequences can be severe. Steam traps can either Fail Open--causing energy loss--or, Fail Closed, accumulating condensate.

Failing closed can allow condensate to back-up into the steam main and carry downstream with severe consequences including: water hammer, low process temperatures, and solidification of product in steam traced line. The Fail Open feature reduces the danger of production or operation losses and provides a safer working environment.

The X-Element internal chamber contains a liquid fill with a saturation temperature slightly lower than the saturation temperature of water. With rising condensate temperature, the fill evaporates. The resulting increase in internal pressure expands the diaphragms to close the valve. When the condensate temperature cools, the fill condenses, reducing the resulting pressure and allowing the diaphragms to contract for the valve to open.

Maintainable steel bodied, thermostatic traps have a high air venting capability and light to medium condensate capacity for steam mains, tracing and process equipment. The following features of the TLV thermostatic traps offer excellent performance and longevity:

arr Patented Fail Open design for critical service performance
arr Hardened stainless steel valve head and seat for maximum life
arr Positive open-close operation reduces valve wear
arr Pressure to close valve design increases longevity
arr Valve, triple diaphragms, and casing have matching contours for high superheat capability and water hammer resistance
arr Large screen area promotes trouble free service
arr Self-draining for freeze protection in vertical installations
arr Flat mirror-finish valve head provides tightest sealing for energy efficiency
arr Compact and capable of self-adjusting to wide flow variations
arr Cleanable and in-line repairable design lowers maintenance costs

TLV Regulators and Control Valves

tlv1For decades, the conventional designs of Reducing Valves seemed good enough; but manufacturers increasingly demanded more effective process control for improved product quality. TLV's response is COSPECT – a remarkable Pressure Regulator, Separator, and Steam Trap three-in-one design.

The wide variation in primary pressure in conventional valves causes the secondary pressure to drift – producing temperature variations that can generate inconsistent product quality. Three aspects of the COSPECT design provide dry saturated steam at a constant pressure and temperature for improved product consistency and quality.

COSPECT Three-in-One Design Breakthrough

arr SAS – Patented Shock Absorbing Spherical Piston delivers stable secondary pressure
arr SCE – Super Cyclonical Effects Separator provides dry saturated secondary steam by effectively removing condensate and scale with a 98% separation efficiency extending the service life of the valve
arr SST – Super Steam Trap continuous discharge trap instantly removes separated condensate and provides for a seal-tight shut-off even under no-load conditions
 
   

The technologically advanced COSPECT provides accurate control and steam conditioning to maximize process steam system performance. TLV offers additional pressure reducing valves, automatic multi-control valves, and multi-controllers to address your various process applications.

TLV Cyclone Separator Traps

The TLV cyclone separator traps remove condensate entrained in steam and air with 98% efficiency. These traps feature the combination of a super cyclone-effect separator with a free Float trap and can deliver high quality air or steam up to a 99.8% dryness. The traps are available in various sizes and models to accommodate your various steam and air applications. The cyclone separators are also available separately and can be used for steam, air and other gas streams.

Steam Strainers

 
Pipeline Strainers are suitable for use in a variety of fluid systems such as:
  arr air
  arr chemical
  arr condensate
  arr gas
  arr oil
  arr petroleum
  arr water

Strainers protect valves, pumps, compressors, condensers, flow meters, nozzles, steam traps, and other vulnerable equipment. Screens are stainless steel or monel with spark-plug-like, clad, non-asbestos gaskets that provide reliable sealing with minimal loading. By guiding - not crushing - screens into bodies, caps and covers, you can be confident of particle retention.
