    It is a steam trap that does not seem to be working correctly! Temperature difference should be 100 min. between steam and condensate side!

  • Looks like a steam trap. Must have discharged some condensate or is leaking some steam.

    Sure thing–will definitely try to get it up as early as possible!

  • Looks like a float and thermostatic steam trap. Without seeing the unit cycle, it is difficult to properly interpret the operating status.

    Not at all! Keep letting us know what you’d like from us–even what kind of information you’d like to see more of on our blog!

    If the span were tighter the function or non function could possibly be mor readily discerned.
    My vote it is operating correctly since the pressure side is above vaporization and the condensate side is below.
