Thermal Disc Steam Traps
Series TA-TD
 
Operation:
Tunstall Associates, Inc. produces a full line of Thermal-Disc™ Steam Traps. Available in 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" NPT connections, all the internal parts are stainless steel for long service life. The Tunstall Thermal-Disc operates using Bernoulli's Theorem; as condensate enters the Thermal-Disc Trap, it lifts the thermal disc and discharges through outlet ports. Multiple outlet ports assure that the lift of the disc is parallel to the seat for efficient operation. Once the condensate reaches its flash point, the pressure on the top of the disc increases, due to higher velocity steam, causing the disc to snap closed. As the steam above the disc condenses, pressure above the disc will lower, and allow the disc to lift again and repeat the process.
