Mark 934 Series - Sanitary Steam Traps

Overview

The Mark 934 sanitary steam trap system is specifically designed to facilitate the sterilization of very large vessels including fermentors, bioreactors and autoclaves without the addition of a SIP Heat up bypass loop. The system consists of a high flow sanitary steam trap and a standard capacity sanitary trap in the same body.

The combined capacity of the two traps handles the highest condensate and air flows during initial heat up, replacing the need for a bypass loop. This trap also manages the lower rate of condensate production during the SIP temperature maintenance period. The Mark 934 is designed to operate up to a maximum differential pressure of 50 psig (3,4 bar) and will control condensate subcooling to less than 5°F, over a range from 10 to 50 psig.

Specifications

  • Capital Expense (CAPex) Reduction: Piping simplification: Elimination of bypass tubing, tubing components, 3-way valve, and I/O capacity. And, minimization of associated labor: welding, polishing, wiring and commissioning
  • Utility Cost Reduction: Efficient air and condensate drainage without live steam or pressure loss. All available heat is transferred to the vessel, not the drain.
  • Vessel Availability Increase: More efficient heat transfer increases vessel availability by reducing heat-up time and SIP total cycle time
  • Polished components-body interior and exterior mechanically polished to SF1, 20 Ra μin (0,51 Ra μm)
  • Self-draining, no hold up
  • Ease of disassembly and maintenance
  • Highest condensate flow rates in the industry
  • FDA, USP Class VI gaskets standard
