Inverted Bucket Steam Trap

The GMK’S bucket inverted design is widely regarded as the most trustworthy steam trap working principle. A one-of-a-kind leverage system is at the core of its straightforward design. This system amplifies the force that is produced by the bucket in order to open the valve in spite of the pressure. The steam trap valve opens and shuts when the bucket within the trap is moved, and this is how inverted bucket steam traps work. The steam makes the inverted bucket float when air or steam pours into the underside and condensate surrounds it on all sides. If you put the bucket in this location, the trap valve will shut. Downstream, the vapor is expelled by the vent hole in the top of the bucket, which leads to the top of the trap.

GMK’S Inverted Bucket Steam Trap is resistant to damage caused by water hammer due to the open design of the bucket’s bottom, and the wear areas have been substantially strengthened to ensure a long lifespan. The bucket itself and the mechanism that controls the valve lever are the only moving pieces in the inverted bucket. That implies there won’t be any fixed points, and the linking won’t be difficult. There is nothing that will adhere, bind, or clog.


  • Because of its design, the inverted bucket steam trap may be reinforced to resist significant force.
  • It is resistant to water hammer circumstances in the same way as a float-thermostatic steam trap is.
  • As long as a check valve is installed on the intake, it may be utilized on superheated steam lines.
  • The open failure mode is preferable for situations that need it, such as turbine drains.
