Operation

Tunstall Corp. produces a complete line of thermostatic radiator steam traps with ratings from vacuum to 25 psi. Each unit is tested and inspected before leaving the factory guaranteeing years of trouble free service. All units are “normally open” to expel air and water and will “close” at saturated steam temperature thereby preventing steam from entering into condensate return lines. Each Tunstall steam trap features the Tunstall Capsule® which has become the best steam trap replacement element available today.

*Ratings are in accordance with standards established by The Steam Heating Equipment Manufacturers Association (SHEMA). No safety factor required.

**To convert Square Feet EDR to pounds of condensate per hour: Divide the square foot ratings by 4.

One Square Foot EDR is equivalent to net emission of 240 BTU per hour with 215?F steam in the radiator surrounded by 70?F air temperature.

One pound of condensate is equivalent to approximately 1000 BTU; 1000 BTU is equivalent to approximately 4 square feet EDR.

***Basic ratings for trap pressures greater than 25 psi are given in lbs of condensate per hour.

One pound of condensate is equivalent to approximately 1000 BTU, 1000 BTU is equivalent to approximately 4 square feet EDR.
