Steam Traps, Valves and Level Gauges
Steam traps, boiler trim valves, level gauges and other reliable steam solutions
Emerson’s broad portfolio of steam solutions includes thermodynamic, thermostatic and mechanical steam traps; blow-off and blowdown valves for removing sludge or dissolved solids from the boiler drum; gauges for monitoring the boiler drum water level and automatic recirculation control (ARC) valves for protecting the boiler feed pump. Our experts can conduct steam system surveys and recommend solutions to ensure optimal operation and enhance energy efficiency.

Automatic recirculation control valves protect the pump that transfers water from the feedwater tank to the boiler. Blow-off and blowdown valves help maintain the water quality by removing sludge and dissolved solids from the boiler drum. Level gauges are used to monitor the boiler water level to minimize the risk of boiler damage or carryover. Pressure relief valves protect the boiler and other equipment by venting excess pressure.
Steam headers, supply lines, drip lines, and pressure reducing stations are key components of the steam distribution system. Steam traps are essential elements that remove condensate and air, thereby optimizing steam distribution and reducing energy costs. Regulators ensure that steam is delivered to various processes at the desired pressures.
Condensate and heat recovery improve the efficiency of a steam system. If the system is equipped with a condensate recovery system, condensate is collected in a vessel and then transferred to the boiler for reuse. Similarly, flash tanks recover flash steam from condensate lines, which can be used for low pressure steam equipment.
