The market for steam traps is many and varied. Steam can be used in any process that requires controlled heat transfer, it is an excellent medium as the temperature of the steam is directly connected to its pressure. It is environmentally friendly as it is simply water under pressure, and due to the retained enthalpy in the condensate, it has its own motive force. Steam does not require additional energy to return the condensate to a receiver or the boiler house.
