Description
Options
Armstrong B and BI Series F&T traps combine high standards of
performance and long life with economy for heating service where continuous
drainage with high air-venting capacity is required.
Integral vacuum breaker. Add suffix VB to model number.
CAUTION: Do not use a conventional vacuum breaker open to the atmosphere
in any system that incorporates a mechanical return system that carries
pressure less than atmospheric pressure. This includes all return systems
designated as vacuum returns, variable vacuum returns or subatmospheric
returns. If a vacuum breaker must be installed in such a system, it should be
of the type that is loaded to open only when the vacuum reaches a calibrated
level well in excess of the design characteristics of the system.
Because of the wide use of vacuum returns in systems of this type,
the thermostatic air vent element is charged to give it the capability of
compensated response to the pressure-temperature curve of steam at any
pressure from less than 20'' (500 mm) Hg vacuum to 30 psig (2 bar) gauge.
B and BI Series F&T traps will vent air at slightly below steam temperature
throughout this entire range of operation.
Specification
All B Series traps, except the 1/2'' (15 mm) and 3/4'' (20 mm), have inlet
connections on both sides of the body to provide flexibility in piping. The
BI Series F&T traps in sizes 1/2'', 3/4'' and 1'' feature the convenience of
in-line connections with the same internals as the B Series.
Float and thermostatic steam trap, type ... in cast iron, with thermostatic
air vent.

Vacuum Breakers 3/8'' (10 mm) and 1/2'' (15 mm) NPT
Many times, condensate will be retained ahead of steam traps because of
the presence of a vacuum. To break a vacuum, air must be introduced into
the system by means of a vacuum breaker.
For maximum protection against freezing and water hammer in condensing
equipment under modulated control, vacuum breakers are recommended.
Armstrong B and BI Series F&T traps are available with integral vacuum
breakers. Maximum pressure is 150 psig (10 bar).
