Steam must be prevented from passing beyond its point of use. Steam passing through and into the return system causes gross inefficiency and expense. The steam trap must close tightly to prevent this. As energy is extracted from steam in the form of heat, steam reverts back to a liquid state in the form of condensate. If this condensate is not removed as quickly as it is formed, the efficiency of the apparatus that requires the heat energy is greatly reduced. There will be flooding of the equipment and needless loss of capacity. The steam trap must be sensitive, fast operating and designed with a large water handling capacity.
In the formation of steam, dissolved air is released from the water. Air is an excellent thermal insulator. However, steam is used for its heat energy, and any insulation reduces the transmission of heat. Therefore, the steam trap must expel all such air that is formed, and be able to discharge it in large quantities very rapidly. A large cooking kettle will, when cold, be completely filled with air. The rapid removal of all this air is a prime requisite of a good steam trap if it is desired to bring the kettle up to operating temperature as quickly as possible. The surface temperature of laundry rolls that are air bound will be too low to do a good, fast ironing operation.
