> Steam Traps & Steam Trapping
Selection tables and advice on trap selection for a range of different processes are included in this tutorial, including calendars, garment presses, dry cleaning machines and tyre presses.
Selecting Steam Traps - Laundries, Presses
A - Best choice, B - Acceptable alternative,
1 (parallel air vent), 5 (‘near-to-steam’ capsule), 6 (anti-air-binding disc).
Thermodynamic, float-thermostatic traps, and balanced pressure traps can be used. It is important for each press to have a separate trap (Figure 11.8.1). The head and tables of twin presses should also be individually drained for maximum output.
