Description
Armstrong Model 521 horizontal installation offer smaller capacities at higher pressures.
A unique leverage system multiplies the force provided by the bucket to open the valve against
system pressure. The mechanism is free-floating and has no fixed pivots to create wear or friction, because the mechanism is located at the top of the trap, no dirt can collect on the orifice.
Small particles of dirt are held in suspension until discharged by the full differential purging
action when the bucket sinks, pulling the valve off the seat. The discharge orifice is surrounded
by a water seal, preventing live steam loss. Automatic air venting is provided by a small vent
hole in the bucket. Inverted bucket traps drain continuously to prevent condensate backup.
They are also resistant to water hammer. Model 521 adds the convenience and savings of in-line
repairability and is designed to meet today’s energy-management requirements efficiently and
economically over a long, trouble-free service life.Model 521 have integral strainer to protect
from dirt and scale
