Thermodynamic Steam Traps

Watson McDaniel Thermodynamic Steam Traps are designed for simplicity and compactness, these innovative devices are equipped with a single moving part – a disc that opens to discharge condensate and shuts in the presence of steam.

  • Single Moving Part (Disc) Opens to Remove Condensate and Closes at Presence of Steam
  • Small and Compact
  • Cyclic, On/Off Operation Easy To Test
  • Made from durable Stainless and Alloy Steels, they can handle pressures up to 3,600 psig
  • They are ideal for high-pressure drip applications and critical tracing applications where condensate backup is not permissible
  • The rugged design makes them suitable for use with superheated steam
  • Unlike mechanical traps, a single model of our Thermodynamic Steam Trap operates over a wide pressure range
  • When mounted vertically, these traps are self-draining, effectively preventing freezing
  • Ideal for Drip Applications Above 30 psig
  • Common Thermodynamic Watson McDaniel steam trap models TD600, TD600L, TD600S, TD600SB, TD600LS, TD600LSB. Common replacement for Spirax Sarco model traps TD-52, TD-52,L TD-42H, TD-42HB, TD-42L, TD-42LB

Choose Cooney Coil & Energy’s Thermodynamic Steam Traps for efficiency, reliability, and performance. Let us help you enhance your steam system’s potential with our premium Watson McDaniel products.

Thermostatic Steam Traps

These are extremely energy-efficient steam traps and excel at discharging air, allowing steam to enter the system quickly during startup. Models are available in stainless and alloy steel for Drip, Tracing, and medium-sized Process applications, handling pressures up to 650 psig.

  • Heavy-duty, industrial-purpose stainless steel thermal element controls condensate discharge based on temperature
  • Backs up some condensate on the inlet side, reducing flash steam into return piping
  • Versatile, handling both drip loads and small-to-medium batch process loads
  • Can be mounted in any position and self-draining when installed vertically
  • Operates over a wide pressure range, unlike F&T and Inverted Bucket traps with various orifice sizes
  • Limited superheat capability
  • Excellent Option for Drip Applications, Especially When Flash Steam is of Concern

Float and Thermostatic Steam Traps

At Cooney Coil & Energy we proudly stock Wason McDaniel Float & Thermostatic (F&T) Steam Traps. These powerhouses are designed to handle pressures up to 450 psig, making them an ideal choice for the majority of process applications.

The F&T Steam Traps operate on a dual mechanism that sets them apart from conventional solutions. They feature a float-operated valve that guarantees continuous discharge of condensate. At the same time, they’re equipped with a thermostatic air vent, responsible for discharging air efficiently.

With choices of body materials, including Cast Iron, Ductile Iron, Cast Steel, and Stainless Steel, you can select the one that best suits your needs. Not only are these traps versatile, but they also excel in drip applications on pressures 30 psig & below.

Don’t settle for subpar performance when it comes to your steam system. Choose F&T Steam Traps from Cooney Coil & Energy, and experience a significant boost in efficiency and reliability. It’s time to turn to a solution that truly understands the demands of your process applications.

  • Mechanical, float-operated valve rises when condensate enters and closes for steam
  • Thermal Element for Air Removal
  • Fast-responding to Pressure & Load Changes, Continuous Discharge
  • Primary Choice for Process Applications, but Excellent for Drip Applications up to 30 psig
  • Common Float and Thermostatic models Watson WFT-015, WFT-30, FTT-065, FTT-145, FTT-145, FTT,225, FTT-300. A common replacement for Spirax Sarco model series FT-15, FT-30, FT-14.

Inverted Bucket Steam Traps

  • Mechanical-style Trap Using an Inverted Bucket as a Float Device to Control Opening & Closing of Plug & Seat
  • Rugged & Simple
  • Top-Mounted Orifice
  • Not Self-draining – Can Freeze and Damage Body or Internal Components
  • Not Self-Priming – Can Lose Prime When Conditions Change Rapidly
  • Held Closed When Over-Pressurized(select proper orifice)
  • Single Position Installation
  • Ideal for Drip Applications on Systems Containing Excessive Pipe Scale & Debris
