Watson McDaniel WFT-015-17-N Float & Thermostatic Steam Trap

Original price was: $ 1,008.00.Current price is: $ 875.00.

The Watson McDaniel WFT-015-17-N Float & Thermostatic Steam Trap with parallel port connections was specifically designed for removing condensate and air from HVAC and industrial process applications such as unit heaters, pressing machines, heat exchangers and coils.

Description

The Watson McDaniel WFT-015-17-N Float & Thermostatic Steam Trap with parallel port connections was specifically designed for removing condensate and air from HVAC and industrial process applications such as unit heaters, pressing machines, heat exchangers and coils. They contain a high-quality welded stainless steel thermostatic air vent and stainless steel mechanism. The WFT Series are fully repairable while the trap remains in-line and are available in 3/4” thru 2″ NPT connections.

Float and thermostatic traps contain a float-operated valve and seat mechanism with a separate thermostatic element which work together to remove both condensate and air from the steam system. The float, which is attached to a valve, rises and opens the valve when condensate enters the trap, allowing the condensate to discharge. Air is discharged through the thermostatic air vent to the outlet side of the trap. Steam entering the trap causes the thermostatic element to expand, closing the air vent and trapping the steam.

WFT Series Features:

  • All stainless steel internals with hardened seat and wear parts
  • In-line repairability is simplified by having all internals attached to the cover
  • Welded stainless steel thermostatic air vent resists shock from waterhammer. Live orifice air vent is available for superheated applications
  • Excellent air handling capability allows air to be discharged rapidly so steam can enter the system quickly during start-up
  • F&T traps discharge condensate immediately as it is formed (no condensate will back up into the system)

WFT-015-17-N Specifications:

  • Model – WFT
  • Sizes – 3/4”, 1”, 11/4”, 11/2”, 2”
  • Connections – NPT
  • Body Material – Cast Iron
  • PMO Max. Operating Pressure – 650 PSIG
  • TMO Max. Operating Temperature – Saturated Steam Temperature
  • PMA Max. Allowable Pressure – 250 PSIG up to 450ºF
  • TMA Max. Allowable Temperature – 450ºF @ 250 PSIG

WFT-015-17-N Installation:

The trap must be installed upright and level for the float mechanism to operate properly. All internal components can be replaced with the trap connected in-line. Repair kits include thermostatic air vent, float, valve seat and disc, and gaskets. The standard thermostatic air vent can be damaged by superheat; therefore, in applications with superheated steam, the thermostatic air vent should be replaced with a special “live orifice” air vent.
