The steam operated pump trap maintains uniform heat transfer rate under all conditions.
Increased productivity and reduced batch timing due to elimination of moisture which is a barrier to heat transfer.
The bypass valve does not need to be opened, thus avoiding steam wastage.
The steam operated pump trap saves condensate by returning it to the local condensate collection tank, which was earlier being drained due to negative differential pressure.
Safety – no water hammering, no steam leaks or condensate spillage.
Reduction in corrosion of heat exchanger by avoiding sub-cooled condensate.
