Barton Steam Traps

Barton Steam Traps

A booklet descriptive of Barton traps has just been issued by the Automatic Steam Trap and Specialty Company of Detroit, Mich., which contains illustrations showing the various applications and range of the Barton trap, and testimonial letters from concerns who have used them. The booklet says: “The principle of the Barton trap is an expression of the simplest and most dependable laws of mechanics—the condensed water causes a lower temperature which instantly contracts the inner sleeve and automatically and positively opens the trap for all water to escape. The temperature, again raised by the steam, automatically closes valve by expanding sleeve and prevents any escape of steam. Yes. it absolutely draws all water out, as said, and there can be no such thing as freezing or air binding. Always water sealed when steam is on the system. It cannot be operated at the valve. Furthermore, it provides a continuous flow that can be correctly metered to determine exact amount of steam used in any plant.” The Barton trap has been used successfully in water works pumping plants. The booklet further says of Barton traps that they “provide dry steam at your command at all times” and: “Barton traps will conserve both coal and engine; will enable you to keep steam on all the time.”
