Thermodynamic Traps

Process & Steam Specialties strives to provide innovative and competitively priced solutions from premium manufacturers for a wide variety of industries including but not limited to; power, oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, food and beverage. To learn more about the thermodynamic traps available in British Columbia, view the information below, with the option to download further product information.


Traditional thermodynamic traps are supplied with single layer cap, adverse atmospheric conditions, radiation losses from no load actuation and blowing. TLV offers an air insulated jacket, condensate cooled jacket, ensuring the best protection and stable operation. A mirror polished sealing surface, and a bimetal air vent ring provides better air venting and rapid startup without air binding and manual unnecessary blowdowns. Parts can easily be replaced as a single unit, ultimately reducing maintenance time and costs.

Forbes Marshall

Best suited for mainline trapping applications, Forbes Marshall thermodynamic steam traps ensure quick condensate removal and help avoid water hammer. They are compact in size and minimize any radiation loss that may take place. Not only are they robust and efficient, their only moving component is the disc in the trap itself.


Offering two types of thermodynamic steam traps, Velan traps are made up of stainless steel hardened floating disc, ground and lap seats that are replaceable in line. With an integral strainer, spiral wound gaskets and stainless steel trim, Velan insures a tight close on satureated steam temperature to all their traps.

Watson McDaniel

The thermodynamic traps by Watson McDaniel are compact, with a single moving disc that opens for condensate discharge but closes where steam is present. Available in stainless steel and alloy steel, these traps can handle pressures up to 3,600 psig and used widely for higher pressure drip applications and critical tracing applications.
