The NFT Series free-float steam traps are designed for use in process equipment such as heat exchangers and reboilers, as well as steam lines, steam cookers, and steam-heated vats. They are available in sizes 1/2 to 2 inches, with flanged, screwed, or socketweld end connections. The company says these steam traps work well in applications with pressures up to 650 psig and less than 20 psig and temperatures to 750 degrees F. The stainless steel internal components protect against erosion and corrosion, the manufacturer states. The steam traps come with a three-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
