Application
The BK 212EX steam trap is used for low capacity drip leg applications such as superheated turbines, sootblowers and general distribution. The dissimilar stainless steel-shaped bimetallic plates and the specially staged titanium nozzle assure long-lasting service and zero steam loss operation even under superheat or water hammer conditions.
Features and Benefits
• ASTM F91 Forged steel body.
• Pressure assisted fail open design.
• Modulating bimetallic regulator discharges hot condensate in a modulating  fashion at approximately 18°F (10°C) below saturation temperature throughout its operating range.
• One internal regulator for all applicable pressure ranges. No adjustment required.
• Operation is unaffected by water hammer or superheat.
• Titanium Valve Nozzle and Body Shield.
• Self draining – will not freeze when installed in gravity drainage position.
• Automatically vents air and non-condensable gases and has a very high (>9:1) cold water capacity for rapid start-up.
• Operates with zero steam loss throughout its operating range saving steam and money during the life of the trap.
• Easy in-line inspection and maintenance – no need to remove the trap from the piping to replace the internals.
