In industry, one of steam's most important tasks is to generate thermal energy through condensation,
and to heat a variety of media in heat exchangers. During this process, the steam flows through pipes and cools down more and more en route,
so that condensate forms here, too.
Condensate prevents the optimum transfer of heat, but also, in particular, leads to erosion and water hammer. To enable steam systems to work reliably and efficiently, steam traps discharge any condensate that builds up, while retaining the valuable steam to the greatest possible extent. How well steam traps perform this task is influenced to a considerable extent by the system's reliability in operation, availability and cost efficiency.
The high-quality product range of GESTRA check valves is precisely tailored to suit customer requirements. The valves are manufactured from a great variety of materials to suit each particular application, and the individual components are perfectly harmonised with one another. Individual, special materials can also be produced.
GESTRA check valves are wafer-type valves with a short overall length. They have considerable structural and hydrodynamic advantages over conventional valves:

For discharging water vapour, neutral gas and steam, and fluids.
Safety valves protect steam systems and tanks from excess pressure. As they are often the last link in the safety chain, they must remain operational in all conditions.
Safety valves discharge water vapour, neutral gas, steam and fluid in the event of excess pressure. As soon as normal operating conditions are restored, they close and do not release any more medium.
The strainer, which is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, functions as a protective valve in all kinds of pipe, upstream of devices that are sensitive to dirt.
For fluids, gas, steam and aggressive media.
Y-seat strainers with flange or socket-type connection
Intermediate flange strainers
These valves are especially suitable for shutting off and throttling steam, condensate from steam, oil and air.
They are ideally designed for installation upstream and downstream of steam traps. They are situated in bypass pipes, in controlled systems with temperature regulators or pressure reducing valves, and upstream of pumps.Read more...
