These valves are especially suitable for shutting off and throttling steam, condensate from steam, oil and air.
They are ideally designed for installation upstream and downstream of steam traps. They are situated in bypass pipes, in controlled systems with temperature regulators or pressure reducing valves, and upstream of pumps.
The primary task of steam traps is to remove condensate from steam-operated heat transfer systems in the optimum way, so that these systems can function without problem for a long time. This involves a variety of requirements, for which different steam trap systems are available.
Condensate drain valve for discharging condensate from steam systems on start-up and for draining remaining condensate when the system is stopped. With integrated dirt trap (Y-strainer) and hand-purging knob. Closing pressure 0.8 bar as standard.
Steam traps for low-pressure steam heaters.
Kondensatableiter für Niederdruck-Dampfheizungen.
TK 23, TK 24
Steam traps with thermostatic capsule for thermostatic pilot control, for removing large and continuous condensate flowrates
GK 11, GK 21
Steam traps with stage nozzle for discharging larger condensate flowrates. With integrated Vaposkop for optimum trap adjustment.
Steam traps with ball float and rolling ball seal for removing fluids from compressed air or gas.
Prevent steam leakage and banked-up condensate with state-of-the-art technology
Steam traps are subject to wear. This in turn leads to loss of steam or banking-up of condensate. Experience shows that the failure rate of faulty steam traps is as much as 25 %. This failure rate can be slashed to less than 5 % with annual inspections and the necessary maintenance.
Steam traps of all makes can be inspected by ultrasonic measurement during ongoing operation. The measured ultrasonic spectrum is shown on a display unit as needle deflection on a scale, or as a curve on a graph, depending on the testing system used.

Suitable for discharging small to medium volumes of condensate. Ideal for draining:
Drainage module with optimum, dirt-protected positioning of the steam trap to ensure ideal operation.
This type of QuickEM is a preassembled drainage module in stainless steel, complete with steam trap, monitoring function and maintenance-friendly bypass. It features a UNA 16A ball-float steam trap, which works with extremely low friction and therefore requires very low actuating forces. It also promises outstanding durability.
Valves that discharge and lift condensate Ball-float steam traps with pump function – UNA 25-PK:
These units function primarily as steam traps. The integrated, automated pump function ensures that condensate is discharged even under reduced steam pressure or high back pressure. The condensate is then pumped out of the body with the aid of booster steam.
Condensate lifter with ball float – UNA 25-PS:
The automated pump function ensures that the return of condensate is always based on demand. The condensate is pumped out of the body with the aid of booster steam.
Closed-loop controlled heat exchangers, special plate-type heat exchangers with major load fluctuations during operation
Drainage of vacuum systems
Also suitable for returning condensate
For returning condensate, e.g. as an alternative to pump-driven return
Thermostatic steam traps with minimum stagnant area for sterile and aseptic applications
For CIP (clean-in-place) and SIP (steam-in-place) processes, recognition of the aggregate state and an adequate steam trap reaction time are crucial factors. The STERIline membrane regulators employed in the SMK series react especially quickly to changing temperatures or operating states, thanks to their design, smaller surface and low weight.
Extremely responsive steam trap – especially suitable for drainage in:
Steam traps for draining steam pipes, trace heaters and steam systems
These steam traps work on the basis of a simple thermodynamic principle. Incoming condensate lifts the valve disk of the regulator to the open position, while steam causes it to close immediately. The traps in the DK series are correspondingly simple in structure, feature a small, compact body and are low in cost.
Compact steam trap for draining heating processes with small load fluctuations.
Especially recommended for use in:
