Armstrong Traps And Strainers
Although steam traps get most of the glory strainers also play an important role in the efficient operation of a well designed system.
Armstrong traps and strainers. Less liquid will spill when the screen retainer is removed. Armstrong 880 steam trap with strainer is used on the return line to trap excess steam returning from the press and convert it into water which is returned to the boiler.

Besides 2000 series stainless steel inverted bucket traps the standard 360 connector or is 2 connector with integral strainer can also be used on many armstrong thermostatic disc bimetallic and float and thermostatic traps. Condensate in trap body will ﬂ ash back through strainer screen for thorough cleaning. The ts 2 has a balanced pressure thermostatic element with a high quality multiple convolution bellows.
Dirt pockets are excellent for stopping scale and core. Y type cast iron strainers 250 lb screwed 1 2 3 class 125 flanged 2 6 class 250 flanged 2 6 screen chambers won t leak or crush both ends of the chambers are precisely machined. By helping companies manage energy armstrong steam traps are also helping protect the world we all share. Polypropylene t line strainers can resist most mineral acids.
For 2 1 2 and 3 size strainers the off center drain permits nearly complete removal of liquid and dirt when blowing down the strainer. A strainer helps screen out particulate matter in a piping system. Armstrong offers strainers in a wide choice of sizes and materials to meet most pipeline straining requirements.
