Bimetallic Steam Trap – Model AB-3500

Model AB-3500 Bimetallic Steam Trap operates by the effect that rising temperature has on bimetallic elements. It adjusts itself to changing conditions, as the increasing pressure on the valve is compensated by the curving of the bimetallic elements caused by the increasing temperature. The Model AB-3500 has a removable cap, stainless steel body that is lightweight, compact and highly resistant to corrosion. The AB-3500 is repairable (body and cap can be unscrewed). It is piped through the Armstrong 360° Universal Connector or Trap Valve Station (TVS). This makes it easy to install and replace, as the trap can be removed while the connector remains in-line. The result is savings in labor cost and an increase in flexibility, as other trap types (Inverted Bucket, Thermostatic and Thermodynamic) can be installed on the same connector.
