Sanitary steam traps are an essential component in steam systems used in various industries, such as food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, dairy, and beverage. They ensure that condensate is discharged and non-condensable gas is removed from the system, allowing for efficient and effective operation. The SV5001 Sanitary Steam Trap from SANSUN is a balanced port, thermostatic steam trap specifically designed for use in validated clean steam systems.
Designed with Sanitary Standards in Mind
The SV5001 steam trap follows ASME BPE guidelines, with all internal wetted parts having a 20Ra µin finish, a self-draining design, and all relevant material, marking, and documentation guidelines. The use of these guidelines ensures that the steam trap meets sanitary standards for use in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, dairy, and beverage industries.
High Flow Rates at Low Pressures
The SV5001 has been specifically designed to provide higher flow rates at low pressures and low subcooling levels. In lab testing, the SV5001 consistently exhibited excellent flow rates at subcooling levels of less than 3°F (<1,7°C). Low subcooling operation reduces the probability of temperature validation faults and resultant SIP delays. It also ensures that condensate won’t back up and wet (cool) the upstream validated temperature sensor.
Two Base Designs
There are two base designs within the SV5001 product range: the standard SV5001, which is good for differential pressures (P1) up to 50 psi (3,4 bar), and the SV5001 Option “P” for differential pressures ranging from 45 – 90 psi (3,1 – 6,2 bar). Both designs are rated to 90 psi (6,2 bar) operating pressure but are recommended for use within the specified inlet pressure ratings.
Easy to Use and Maintain
During start-up, the bellows element is contracted and fully open to discharge all non-condensable gas and condensate. The heat of entering steam causes the element to expand, closing the valve. As condensate accumulates in the body, the element cools, causing the bellows/stem tip to retract, allowing condensate to drain. The SV5001 steam trap is easy to install and maintain, making it an ideal solution for clean steam systems.
Applications and Specifications
The SV5001 steam trap is suitable for a wide range of applications, including sterilization drainage for fermenters, bioreactors, separation and filtration equipment, lyophilizers, autoclaves, process piping equipment, and steam barriers. It comes in four sizes, 1/2”, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/2″, and three end connections, ASME, DIN/ISO Sanitary Tri-Clamp, and ASME/DIN/ISO Tube Ends. The materials used for construction are all 316L stainless steel, with gaskets that are FDA and USP Class VI compliant.
The SV5001 Sanitary Steam Trap from SANSUN is a reliable and effective solution for clean steam systems in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, dairy, and beverage industries. It is designed to meet the highest sanitary standards, with excellent flow rates and easy installation and maintenance.
