Series G, MG
Float & Thermostatic Steam Traps
Sizes: 34" 2" (20 50mm)
For operating pressures up to 50psi (3.5 bars)
Series G, MG Float & Thermostatic Steam Traps are designed
for use on modulating process equipment and as main distribution line drip traps. Series G, MG Float & Thermostatic steam
traps feature a straight through design for fast simple installation.
Stainless steel valve head and seats provide long service life.
G, MG series steam traps have excellent air venting capability
and discharge condensate at near to steam temperature so
the steam space remains free of condensate providing
improved steam system efficiency.

Features
Fail safe In case of float failure, trap will discharge
condensate and air; no unit freeze-up
Air vent parts accessible without disturbing piping
Inlet baffle breaks up water hammer; prevents
damage to parts
Snap action valve no wire-drawing or valve chatter
Two moving parts no levers, hinges or pins to corrode
or jam
Straight-through connections saves installation time,
labor, space, headroom
Stainless steel valve head and seats
Seamless copper float no seams to develop leaks
Uniform operations not affected by changes in load
or pressures
Condensate valve rotates ensures even wear, longer
valve and seat life

Applications
Steam coils
Unit heaters
Drip points
Heat exchangers
Water heaters
Absorption machines
Unit ventilators
Air handlers
Make-up air coils
Re-heat coils
Jacketed kettles

The basic capacity ratings are expressed in pounds condensate per hour at various pressure differentials.
For ease of trap selection the tables also give the heating
value in MBH of the steam condensed. This is arrived at by
multiplying the condensate rating by the appropriate Latent
Heat Value and dividing by 1,000 to determine MBH.
Capacities are also expressed in square feet Equivalent
Direct Radiation. This is determined by dividing the heating
capacity in BTU/Hr. (MBH x 1,000) by 240 BTU/Hr./Square
Foot Equivalent Direct Radiation.
Example:
Select a trap for a Unit Heater with a heating capacity of 170
MBH operating on a 5 psi line. A 2 to 1 capacity factor is desired.
MBH rating for selection purposes =
2 x 170 = 340 MBH. Read down 5 psi
column and select the smallest trap whose
MBH rating exceeds 340 MBH.
The 1" 7G has a capacity of 505 MBH,
or 525 pounds of condensate per hour on
600

2,104 square feet Equivalent Direct

Note: The condensate capacities for GF or MGF traps are the same as shown for G or MG float and thermostatic traps and selection should
be made in the same manner.
**Ratings are in accordance with the recommended standards adopted by the Steam Heating Equipment Manufacturers Association. Select trap directly from
table for the lowest differential that may exist in the system. Traps may be applied directly and no safety factor need be applied.
