Flowstar, a leading supplier of Safety, Relief and Reducing Valves now also stocks TLV Steam traps and TLV Steam Globe Valves to complement their TLV Steam Reducing valves.

TLV was established in Japan in 1950 and has grown to become a world authority in steam engineering products and services. TLV is a very wellknown trusted brand.

“Flowstar has long supplied Steam Safety valves and Steam Reducing valves and adding these to our range seemed a sensible next move since they are used alongside these products” said Managing Director Chris Turner. “Flowstar is well known for supplying products quickly hence having stock is essential. We have started stocking the most common types and sizes and will then expand the range over time.”

Steam Globe Valves
Bellows sealed valves with a no-leak gland packing seal. Flanged PN25 in sizes ½˝ to 4˝ from stock.

Steam Traps
A steam trap is an automatic valve that discharges condensate generated during processes and in steam transport lines, without allowing the discharge of any steam. Steam trap operation principles can be roughly divided into three categories – mechanical, thermostatic and thermodynamic. TLV manufacture products in each of these categories. TLV have incorporated many unique features into their products which improve reliability and performance.

Free Float Steam Traps
TLV manufactures mainly the 'free float steam trap.' Free float® steam traps offer an infinite number of contact surfaces with the valve seat, ensuring a long service life. Air venting feature for improved equipment productivity. Compact design with no levers or hinges for reliability. Large tolerance for backpressure allows for problem-free operation even where condensate is recovered.

Thermodynamic Steam Traps
TLV’s thermodynamic steam traps are all disc type traps, which allow less steam leakage and have fewer problems with sticky scale and build-up of dirt. Suitable for a variety of applications, such a steam main lines, tracers, steam heating equipment, etc.

Thermostatic Steam Traps
TLV traps offer three types of temperaturesensing materials to detect differences in temperature. Thermoliquid, Bimetal, Thermowax. They offer improved productivity, energy conservation, long service life and easy maintenance.

Quick Traps
TLV Quick Trap two-bolt system will enable the most inexperienced personnel to easily replace a steam trap in minutes. Also the design of the universal flange permits the installation of a steam trap in the correct position regardless of the piping installation. Connections for the Steam Traps and the Stations are universal; therefore, traps can be interchanged.
