Armstrong Carbon Steel High Pressure Float & Thermostatic ICS Series Steam Traps
Armstrong ICS series F&T steam traps are industrial service from 0 to 465 psi (32 bar)
The simple yet rugged constriction of the ICS series carbon steel float & thermostatic steam trap is designed to assure long, trouble free service
Steam trap material:
Body material: ASTM A352-LCB
Internal materials: All stainless steel
Thermostatic air vent material:
Wafer type stainless steel with hastelloy element
Connection: ASME B16.5 flange class 150 – 300
Can be ordered with horizontal flange connection of vertical flange connection
Integral vacuum breaker 1/2″ NPT (DN15)
Many times, condensate will be retained ahead of stem traps because of the presence of a vacuum. To break a vacuum, air must be introduced into the system by menas of a vacuum breaker.
For maximum protection against freezing and water hammer in condensing equipment under modulated control, vacuum breakers are recommended. Armstrong ICS Series F&T Traps are available with integral vacuum breakers. Maximum service pressure is 150psig (10 barg)
CAUTION: Do not use a conventional vacuum breaker open to the atmosphere in any system that incorporates a mechanical return system that carries pressure less than atmospheric pressure. This includes all return systems designated as vacuum returns, variable vacuum returns or subatmospheric returns. If a vacuum breaker be installed in such a system, it should be of the type that is loaded to open only when the vacuum reaches a calibrated level well in excess of the design characteristics of the system.
