Chicago, IL — February 17, 2005
Hoffman Specialty®, a unit of ITT Industries, has introduced its Series TD Thermodisc steam traps to their extensive Bear Trap® product line. The new steam traps are designed for a variety of applications and allow for simplified installation. Typical applications include:

• Drip traps on main steam and supply lines
• Tracer lines
• Laundry and kitchen equipment
• Superheated steam applications
• Outdoor installations that are subject to freezing

The two primary trap designs operate both horizontally and vertically. Series TD6520 can withstand a high-pressure capacity of up to 4,700 lbs/hr and the Series TD6420 includes an integral strainer to protect the trap from contamination and can operate with a capacity of up to 2,200 lbs/hr. Both designs are freeze resistant when the trap is piped in vertical orientation due to their self-draining design.

The stainless steel construction resists internal and external corrosion as well as reduces water hammer noise. The new traps also operate over a wide pressure range from 2 to 600 psig with a maximum temperature of 800 °F.
