Ogontz Steam Products

Pinch Traps

Ogontz Pinch Traps incorporate a chemically resistant, patented seal mechanism that automatically adjusts for optimal condensate removal.

  • High level of temperature control
  • No moving parts
  • No metal to metal seating
  • Minimal live steam loss
  • Back pressure insensitive
  • Can be installed in any position
  • Self draining when in vertical position
  • Automatic air venting

Thermostatic Traps

The high flow capacity CAT (Condensate Actuation Temperature valve) thermostatic trap provides minimal steam loss by automatically controlling condensate discharge temperature.

  • High flow capacity
  • Back pressure insensitive
  • Freeze protected — self draining
  • Maintains temperature set point
  • Reliable, unattended operation
  • Easy installation
  • 100% factory tested

Like the CAT, the CTV (Condensate Temperature Control valve) thermostatic trap offers virtually no steam loss, but is optimized for lighter loads.

  • 200 psig (maximum operating pressure)
  • Conserves energy
  • Minimizes flash and live steam losses
  • Freeze protected — self draining
  • Maintains temperature set point at any pressure
  • Back pressure insensitive
  • Throttles down to 1/2 pound per hour for extremely light loads
  • 100% factory tested

Ambient Sensing Valves (External Sensing)

Ogontz TL Valves are ideal for steam-traced lines of all types. Ambient sensing valves protect temperature sensitive instrumentation, winterize product lines, and conserve energy in unit heaters. Ambient sensing valves are used to control heat transfer media (glycol, hot oil, water, etc.) based on changes in ambient temperature.

Ambient Sensing Valves are commonly used in:

  • Steam Tracing
  • Unit Heaters
  • Ship Supply Lines
  • Fire Systems
  • Cooling Towers
  • Instrument Enclosures
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Tanks
  • Dryers
