UC450SL Flow-to-Left
Four basic configurations of connectors are available: UC450, UC450S, and UC450SR/UC450SL. The UC450SR (with strainer, flow to right) is the most common connector choice. Choice is based upon strainer orientation or if a piping interference exists All connector styles operate with any trap module. The R and L versions are mirror images of each other and are selected based on which side the user prefers the trap mounted on.

The UC450SL Series Universal Trap Connectors reduce the time and manpower to replace steam traps. The stainless steel Connector remains permanently in-line allowing steam trap module to be replaced in minutes. These universal connectors can be used for drip service on steam mains and steam supply lines, tracing, or for small process equipment. Industrial standard 2-bolt universal connectors are commonly used in chemical plants, petrochemical refineries, paper mills, and other industrial facilities. The UC450 connectors conform to industrial standards, making them compatible with other manufacturers’ universal steam trap modules.

Features
• Universal connector with 2-bolt mounting allows for fast, easy replacement of trap module making it more cost-effective than replacing conventional type steam traps
• All stainless steel construction
• Trap module can rotate 360º on the universal connector allowing any orientation during installation
• Compatible with other manufacturers’ trap modules
• Available with integral strainer and blowdown valve
How It Works
Universal connectors remain permanently installed in the piping system. The convenient 2-bolt mounting system allows the trap module to be removed and replaced quickly and easily using a socket or open-end wrench without disturbing the existing piping.
Selection / Sizing / Capacities

Four basic configurations of connectors are available: UC450, UC450S, UC450SR and UC450SL.

The UC450SR (with strainer, flow to right) and UC450SBR (with strainer&blowdown valve, flow to right)st is the most common connector choice. Choice is based upon strainer orientation or if a piping interference exists. All connector styles operate with any trap module. The R and L versions are mirror images of each other and are selected based on which side the user prefers the trap mounted on.

*Connectors and Trap Modules are ordered separately.

Installation and Maintenance
The universal connector can be installed in vertical or horizontal piping and available in 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” threaded NPT and socket weld (SW). In horizontal installations, orientation of connector body may be dependent on the specific type of trap module used. These connectors remain permanently installed in the piping system. The convenient 2-bolt mounting system allows the trap module to be easily replaced using a socket or open-end wrench without having to unthread piping.
