What is ECOTRAP?

ECOTRAP is only the orifice steam trap that achieve the full orifice advantages without having the orifice disadvantages.

There are so many reasons to replace your mechanical steam traps with “ECOTRAP”.

  • No steam loss.
  • No Moving Parts that can wear and fail.
  • Never fail open.
  • No regular mentainance required.(Easy to maintain)
  • Minimize the running cost and CO2 emission.
  • Low initial cost.
  • No water hammer and thermal shock.
  • Stabilized process temperature.
  • Resistant to freeze damage.
    You can completely eliminate the steam loss when proper type of ECOTRAP is selected. With ECOTRAP, you can save steam, enegy, maintenance fee as well as CO2 emission. The benefits for you to replace your mechanical steam trap with ECOTRAP are its’ energy efficiency, cost effectiveness, and also environmentally-friendliness.

    ECOTRAP is only the orifice trap in the world that significantly reduced the risk of plugging or blockage problem with some unique technologies. And it’s still compatible with high flow, low flow and high pressure use.

  • Each model has levels of capacity suitable in different conditions.
  • RTJ(Ring type Joint) flange connection size is available up on request.
  • #Technologies#
  • ECOTRAP has no moving parts that can wear and fail.
  • The multi-orifice structure enable ECOTRAP to have a larger sized orifice.
  • “Interrupter Technology” A Patent application in progress.
  • Orifice is exchangeable so you can easily change the orifice when needed.
  • # What is “Interrupter Technology”? #

    “Interrupter” is the device which can absorb or ease the speed of both steam and condensate comes out from the orifice. This technology has enabled the trap to have large sized orifice. Therefore, ECOTRAP rarely have orifice plugging or blockage problem by dirt in any condition.

    Check the Steam Loss

    How much steam you can save with ECOTRAP is depending entirely on how much loss you have.

    “There are several ways you can check the loss in your existing steam system as follows.”

    [ 1 ] A system with a steam flow meter

    Install ECOTRAP in by-pass line of your existing steam trap. Run the existing steam trap first and then switch it to ECOTRAP. The difference of steam consumption between these two trap operations can be checked and compared.

    [ 2 ] A system with no steam flow meter

  • Check the consumption of fuel in steam boiler.
  • ( In addition, this test may have less accuracy as the running environment may vary during the test.)
  • Check and compare the opening level of an automatic control valve in between ECOTRAP and your existing trap under the same condition. Then you can find out the steam loss of these two traps by Cv Formula.
  • Catch all energy of steam and drain discharged from steam trap into water vessel for a while (180sec – 300sec). Steam loss and drain can be calculated from the data of initial and final temperatures and weights of water.
  • # How to catch the energy from steam trap ? #
  • Put all of drain and steam from the trap into water.
  • After several seconds (over 180sec to 300sec recommend), put off the line from the trap to water.
  • Measure the catching time of discharged energy into water.
  • Steam and drain discharged from the trap can be calculated by measuring temperatures and weights of initial and final water and time.
  • By measuring the steam loss between two traps, the difference can be comfirmed.
  • Refer ASME PTC.39.1 in detail.
    We can give you the summary on your request. If you show us your test data,
    we reply the result of calculation and the examination.
