UTD450 Thermodynamic Trap Module

Horizontal Piping (Connector with Strainer)

DRIP, TRACING: Designed to work as a drip trap for the draining of condensate from steam mains and other steam supply lines, the UTD450 Thermodynamic Steam Trap Module can be used anywhere conventional thermodynamic steam traps are used. Can also be used on tracing applications. This model is only recommended for horizontal piping installations to allow the cap to be oriented upwards. The UTD450 mounts to any 2-bolt Quick-Change Universal Connector.

The UTD450 is recommended for horizontal piping only so that cap can be oriented upwards, as shown.

Features
• Trap module can be easily removed and replaced in minutes without having to disconnect any piping
• Trap modules can be used with most manufacturers’ 2-bolt universal connector
• All stainless steel construction with hardened seat
How It Works
The UC450 universal connector is permanently installed into the pipeline where the steam trap would normally be placed. The trap module, which functions like any thermodynamic steam trap, is fastened to the universal connector with two bolts. When a new trap module is needed, it can be easily removed and replaced with a standard open-end or socket wrench without disturbing the existing piping.
Selection / Sizing / Capacities
Connector selection to use with the UTD450: UC450 (no strainer), UC450S (strainer), UC450SB (strainer and blowdown). Select this model for steam systems with maximum working pressure of 450 PSIG.

Dimension and Weights
Options
Universal Connectors are available with an integral strainer and blowdown valve. Connector is purchased separately. See the UC450 Universal Connectors section for more information.
Installation and Maintenance
The UTD450 Trap module was intended for horizontal piping installations so the trap can be installed with cap facing upwards. Trap module is attached to the connector using two bolts. If the trap fails for any reason, replace only the trap module. When a new trap module is needed, it can be easily removed and replaced with a standard open-end or socket wrench without disturbing the existing piping.
Sample Specification
The steam trap module shall be designed to attach to the industry standard two-bolt universal connector. Trap module shall be of a thermodynamic design. Universal connector shall conform to the two bolt industry standard with integral strainer and blowdown options.
