Note on capacity: Low pressure F & T trap capacities are in accordance with standard adopted by the Steam Heating Manufacturer’s Association (SHEMA) providing for the continuous elimination of air when the trap is operating at its maximum rating. No safety factor need be applied. Actual capacities are significantly greater than the SHEMA ratings indicate.

Note on capacity: Trap capacities are based on continuous discharge at stream temperature. The published figures are the result of an extensive testing program conducted in accordance with ANSI/ASME PTC 39.1 – 1980, Condensate Removal Devices for Steam Systems at the B&J factory. Significantly greater capacities are realized when condensate temperature is below saturated steam temperature. Appropriate safety factors should be applied to these ratings.
