Hoffman Specialty® Introduces Series TD Thermodisc Steam Traps


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.

Hoffman Specialty, a unit of ITT Industries, is a leading manufacturer of steam traps, regulators and valves for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

Multi screw pump moves highly viscous heavy oil at low NPSHa

22.02.2024 -

At a tank farm in a Brazilian sea port, two centrifugal pumps were used for transferring heavy oil from storage tanks to road tankers or vessels until February 2020. This required the high viscosity of the medium to be reduced by means of diesel injection, costing the owner at least 2,000 US dollars each day. In addition, the centrifugal pumps regularly broke down due to cavitation damage. The owners decided to initially replace one of the two centrifugal pumps with a NOTOS multi screw pump from NETZSCH. Due to its very good suction capabilities, the selected four-screw 4NS is also suitable for highly viscous media with up to 200,000 cSt, achieving a flow rate of up to 3000 m³/h.
