Test your traps quickly and easily.

Tempilstik tests steam traps by simply rubbing it along the pipe beyond the trap. If the stick melts, you have a bad trap. It's that easy! Available for a variety of pressure gauges and melting temperatures.

Features

  • Quickly and easily tests steam traps
  • If the stick melts, you have a bad trap
  • Available in a variety of pressure gauges
  • Available in a variety of melting temperatures

How do the Wax TrapTesters™ work?

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
There is a relationship between steam pressure and temperature. If a trap is working properly, typically there is a drop in pressure from the inlet pipe to the outlet pipe, thus a significant drop in temperature. The TrapTesters™ are each designed to melt at different temperatures. One would select the TrapTester™ that corresponds to the pressure the trap is set at. The TrapTester™ is then rubbed on the outlet pipe after the trap. If the TrapTester™ melts, this would indicate that the steam trap is allowing steam to “blow through” as opposed to collecting and releasing condensate only.

Which Trap Tester should I purchase to test my traps?

A:
The Trap Testers all melt at varying temperatures. Pressure is directly related to pressure. Since a steam trap is “trapping” steam and allowing water to pass, normally a drastic change in temperature would be noticed from the inlet to the outlet of the trap. To purchase the correct trap tester, you need to know what pressure the trap is set at and then select the corresponding tester based on that.

How could I get a false reading on the Wax Trap Testers?

A:
Be sure when ordering the trap tester that you are ordering the tester for the correct psi that the trap is running on. Another reason you could get a false reading would be if you applied the tester onto a cold pipe line and then turned the steam on. These should only be applied when the steam is on and passing through the trap.

How do the Wax Trap Testers work and how do I know where to find the PSI/temperature going into the steam trap?

A:
The testers are based on temperature, and temperature corresponds to steam pressure and there is a direct correlation between the two. The customer will have to know what the pressure or temperature is going into the trap in order to know which trap tester to choose. If a trap is working correctly, you will typically see a 50% drop in pressure after the trap and roughly a 30 degree drop in temperature. If there is no pressure gauge installed before the trap, then they can read the pressure gauge installed after the Reducing Valve. So for instance, if they know that the pressure going into the trap is 80 PSI, then they would choose the TES294, which has a pressure range of 80-99 PSI. The melting temperature is 294 degrees F. If they refer to the instructions, there is a chart that will tell them what the temperature is based on the PSI. 80 PSI has a temp of 324 degrees before the trap. After the trap, it would be 40 PSI at 287 degrees. If the trap isn’t working correctly, then the temp would be greater than the 294 degrees and the stick would melt.
