The Spirax-Sarco float and thermostatic (F&T) high pressure steam trap, model FT14-10, features a 2" trap connection in an in-line horizontal configuration. This pattern allows steam to enter from one side of the trap, and the condensate to discharge from the opposite side of the trap. FT14 Series F&T traps are continuous drainage and are designed for low, medium, and high pressure steam mains and come standard with stainless steel internal parts. The FT14-10 is cast iron and has a 145 psi maximum operating pressure. The traps are designed for service on heat exchange equipment where there is a need to vent air and non-condensable gases quickly. They are recommended for modulating pressures where widely varying loads are present and are a good choice for their ability to vent air at very low pressures, handle start up air loads, and operate against back pressure.
