Self-cleaning “Pinch Technology” eliminates dirt, costs less than other steam trap products and lasts several times longer (other types must be replaced every 6 months)

COLD POSITION

As the fluid temperature drops below the preset temperature, the wax contracts, allowing the force of the operating spring to open a direct-acting valve or close a reverse acting valve.

HOT POSITION

As the fluid temperature rises above the preset temperature, the wax starts to expand, exerting force on the operating spring and closing a direct-acting valve, or opening a reverse acting valve.
