As steam distribution assemblies (MSD/SMSD), manifolds place all steam supply valves in one location. Standardizing components and centralizing their location simplify installation while reducing costs. You also save because routine maintenance is faster. Insulation can also be provided . . . and can bring major savings in most installations.
Armstrong combines its Trap Valve Stations (TVS) with manifolds in a package called the Condensate Collection Assembly (CCA). This prepackaged assembly offers many great benefits—cost savings in assembly, design flexibility and reduced purchasing and design time. The CCA with TVS 4000 Series and the Inverted Bucket Traps is guaranteed for three years.
This preassembled concept offers tremendous savings by reducing multiple component purchases that cause additional purchase-order monitoring and shipping costs. Other savings include far less labor time for field assembly. This modular forged steel body design provides quick assembly/delivery, reducing overall project costs.
Armstrong can meet virtually any design parameter with your choice of socketweld or threaded connections. Inverted bucket, thermostatic, thermostatic wafer, or disc or bimetal steam traps can be provided for any other manufacturer’s two-bolt steam trap. If you require a specific piping arrangement, Armstrong offers the flexibility to meet your needs.
Manifold body: ASTM A105 forged steel
A manifold assembly for more efficient condensate return has another benefit—freeze protection. Armstrong’s innovative manifold design actually serves as a heat station, heating one or more traps if the steam supply is interrupted or shut off to the traps.
The protection is provided as long as one trap continues to discharge into the manifold. The manifold’s internal siphon tube creates a water seal, which contains the flash steam from the discharge of the live trap. This allows radiant heat to protect shut-off traps from freezing.
An optional freeze protection valve package senses condensate temperature. When this device opens, it drains condensate from the manifold assembly, thus providing further freeze protection.
A removable insulation package is available for all steam and condensate manifolds. The package is:
