Spirax Sarco's FTC80-FB ball float steam trap is designed for steam process applications
Spirax Sarco's FTC80-FB ball float steam trap series is designed for pressures as high as 1160 psig. The FTC80-FB carbon steel series has a body and cover made of cast steel with all socket weld connections. This series is self modulating to provide soft and continuous discharge. It has a plugged bottom-side drain connection that can be used for cleaning out or a freeze protection with a manual drain valve. All internals are stainless steel and have a single seat mechanism that has an infinite turndown ration on both pressure and flow. The main valve assembly has a tight shut-off under no-load conditions, even if the water seal is lost. A fixed bleed air venting device is supplied to prevent air locking of the trap on startup. The standard offering is available in 1-1/2- and 2-inch pipe connections, which are direct inline with no change in elevation. The flow direction is right-to-left with a removable strainer screen to the front of the trap.
