The task of the steam trap involves the optimum dissipation of the condensate situated in steam heated heat exchangers or systems. Liquids and cold condensates which occur in systems with other gaseous substances due to e.g. dew point differences also need to be dissipated. Gestra offers various production series of steam traps to meet the various, system specific requirements. Gestra steam traps mainly involve the BK, MK, DK and UNA production series.
- Gestra steam traps of the BK production series (also steam traps with bi-metallic regulator) include thermostatic steam traps with bi-metallic regulator as a robust version with protection against line hammers and frost.
- Gestra steam traps of the MK production series (also steam traps with membrane regulator) have a high level of responsiveness and control precision and automatic ventilation thanks to the membrane regulator.
- Gestra steam traps of the UNA production series (also ball float traps) are controlled by ball floats. They are particularly suitable for use in strongly changing operating conditions and make dissipation possible without banking up even if there are sudden changes in pressure and condensate quantity and also for the smallest differential pressures. Automatic ventilation is included in the Duplex version.
