Steam Tracing Traps That Save You Money

Steam Tracing Traps That Save You Money

During cold months, fluid-carrying or temperature-sensitive piping must be winterized to keep industrial processes functioning optimally. For facilities that already have systems that use steam, redirecting some of it to heat trace piping during the winter months seems a simple solution.

While an effective method for preventing potential freeze damage, conventional steam traps often result in expensive live steam losses and temperature variations on piping, which may effect the processes that they supply.

When used as a steam trap on steam tracing, ThermOmegaTech®’s TV/HAT valve eliminates these issues. The TV/HAT only drains cooled condensate, eliminating live steam losses and saving money over the freeze season.

Installed on each tubing run, the TV/HAT keeps the entire traced piping at the same temperature, a necessity for temperature-sensitive applications and equipment.

Steam Tracing TrapsUsing leak port flow, the valve constantly bleeds a small amount of condensate to continuously monitor the discharge temperature, allowing for a shorter reaction time to temperature changes.

As the steam in the tracing cools to condensate and its temperature falls to the valve’s set-point, the TV/HAT modulates open, drains the condensate, and closes once the discharge temperature has risen.

Offered in a wide range of set-points, the TV/HAT’s reliable actuator and corrosion-resistant stainless steel body guarantee a long service life.

Protecting your piping during the winter with steam tracing shouldn’t empty your pockets – implement the TV/HAT for reliable and efficient steam tracing control. For more information on the solutions ThermOmegaTech® offers, click here to visit our website.
