The Difference Between Thermostatic and Thermodynamic Steam Trap

difference thermostatic and thermodynamic steam trap
Selecting steam trap type is a crucial step in engineering work for the steam distribution line or steam usage point. Making wrong decision will lead to poor performance of the steam system.

Knowing the difference between thermostatic and thermodynamic steam trap is a part of the selection stage. By knowing this fact, it will be easier to proceed the process.

The following table shows the difference between thermostatic and thermodynamic steam trap.
