Hercules cage unit for Mepco (formerly Dunham-Bush) #1 and #1A traps. This cage unit requires a new cover when first installed. Hercules cage units replace the existing thermostat and seat of the specific radiator trap being repaired. These premium quality cage units deploy a robust, seven-coil thermostatic bellows assembly that controls the trap's operation. They feature a heavy duty thermostatic element and seating units surrounded by a protective stainless steel cage that are precisely calibrated to ensure solid opening and closing. This design helps protect the bellows assembly from pipe system debris. They offer a longer operating life than the simple 2-ply diaphragm found in the standard Barnes & Jones cage unit. They are held in place by a cage protrusion at the bottom of the unit that protrudes into the orifice of the trap. A high tension spring at the top of the unit will apply pressure to the cover, eliminating any movement. When the thermostatic element senses steam, it expands causing the ball plunger at the bottom of the element to close against its internal seat, thus keeping the steam contained until the steam cools to a liquid state. The element then senses the cooler liquid condensate and contracts, which raises the plunger from the seat and allows the condensate to drain.

Barnes & Jones Parts
Barnes & Jones was founded before the turn of the century by two engineers who applied their expertise to build quiet and efficient steam heating traps and systems. Today, Barnes & Jones manufactures 100% calibrated cage unit inserts, the recognized standard in the steam heating repair kit market, for every heating steam trap body ever made. Barnes & Jones products are available throughout North America, Central and South America, and most of Europe. The operating principle of these cage units, first introduced in 1902, remains unchanged as cage units emerge, today, as the preferred automatic valving solution for high-tech environmental control systems.
