Steam traps automatically drain condensate without loss of steam or gas. They operate instantaneously and are not affected by backpressure or pressure fluctuations. They do not require an external energy input.
KN Niagara is a float-controlled steam trap for all applications where large volumes have to be handled. Body, cover and valve cap are manufactured from cast iron; the cone is fitted with a metallic seal. NIAGARA KN 1 is fitted as standard equipment with a manual bleed valve and, for the larger valve sizes, with a drain plug in the sludge collecting chamber.
The pipe diameter downstream of the steam trap should be dimensioned according to the volume of condensate and the length of the pipe.
