These are the products we carry through the manufacturer Bestobell Steam.
Bestobell Steam created the Delta Element steam trap over 40 years ago to correct two age-old steam trap problems: steam loss and trap failure.
Delta Element Traps
DM10E Series – Commonly used as an automatic drain for freeze-proof protection of condensate return systems and manifolds, and on tracer systems where maximum use of BTU’s from condensate is desired. Single blade element offers long-term, trouble-free service because it’s not prone to dirt build-up as encountered with many other bimetal designs.
DM25 Series – For use on a steam main dripleg and critical tracing service with operating pressures up to 320 psig (22,1 bar). The single blade element offers long-term, trouble-free service because it’s not prone to dirt build-up as encountered with many other bimetal designs.
DM40/64/100/100F/160/320 Series – An excellent choice for high pressure applications, these rugged steam traps provide fast start-up and high performance on steam main driplegs and pressure process applications with operating pressure ranges from 250 psi (17,2 bar) to 2000 psi (137,9 bar). The single blade element offers long-term, trouble-free service because it’s not prone to dirt build-up as encountered with many other bimetal designs.
DM6/DM12 Series – A line of lightweight, yet rugged, steam traps that provide modulating discharge of light condensate loads without the loss of live steam. These fully maintainable steam traps feature energy-efficient operation with excellent start-up capacities for services with operating pressures up to 150 psi.
Magnum Series – A versatile line of high capacity steam traps, Bestobell’s Magnum can be supplied with up to 18 bimetallic elements for hot condensate flows as high as 149,000 pounds per hour. With five models available for operating pressures up to 320 psig, you can add or delete elements to match your changing conditions.
Bestobell Steam offers a universal mount, bimetallic steam trap for plant applications requiring standardized connections. The universal mounting connections allow trap use on an manufacturer’s universal mount. The two bolt replacement module is easy to install, replace or rebuild.
TS22 Series – For services with operating pressures up to 300 psig (20,7 bar), this model is designed to efficiently make use of the sensible heat by retaining condensate within the tracer line. Single blade element offers long-term, trouble-free service because it’s not prone to dirt build-up as encountered with many other bimetal designs.

Total Steam Trap Stations
Total Trap 2 & 3 – The Total Trap® series is a line of compact, thermodynamic style steam trap stations for saturated steam designed to efficiently discharge condensate on applications with working pressures up to 600 psig.
Total Trap 4 – The Total Trap® 4 is a compact, thermodynamic style steam trap station for superheated steam applications designed to efficiently discharge condensate on applications with working pressures up to 2000 psig and temperatures up to 1000°F.
Total Trap 3HP – The Total Trap 3 High Pressure series is a line of compact, thermodynamic style steam trap stations for saturated steam applications designed to efficiently discharge condensate on applications with working pressures up to 900 psig and temperature up to 800°F.
Clean Steam Traps
BTCS Series Sanitary Steam Trap – The BTCS Series is a bellows type, thermostatic steam trap with sanitary connections. Designed specifically for clean steam systems. It features a 20Ra internal finish, and a self-draining design, to minimize the possibility of medium entrapment and bacterial growth.
The improved configuration of the BTCS Series has been specifically designed to provide higher flow rates at low pressures and low subcooling levels. In lab testing, the BTCS has exhibited excellent flow rates at subcooling levels of only 3°F (-16°C).
Two designs are featured in the BTCS Series – the standard BTCS is good for differential pressures up to 65 psi (4,5 bar) and the BTCS1, for differential pressures ranging from 50 – 90 psi (3,4 – 6,2 bar). Both designs are rated to 90 psi (6,2 bar) operating pressure (hydrostatically tested to 450 psi (31 bar) but provide best performance when used within their respective differential pressure operating ratings.
During start-up, the bellows assembly is fully open to discharge all air, non-condensable gases and cool condensate. The heat of the entering steam causes the element to expand, closing the valve. As condensate accumulates in the body, the element cools, causing the ball stem tip to retract from the seat and allow condensate to drain.

Pressure Operated Condensate Return Pumps
Bestobell Steam’s Pressure Operated Pump Systems (POPS) are designed to move condensate or other liquids without the use of electricity. and return condensate at temperatures above the 200 degree Fahrenheit limit typically of conventional electric pumps. Since they are pressure operated, they require no electrical panels, starter, or accessories. They operate with minimal maintenance, and with no rotating seals to leak or motors to burn out.
Pressure Operated Pumps
Making the most out of the BTU’s in your system is key to efficient operation. Yet you may be pouring up to 20% of your heat energy down the drain with the condensate that is being discharged from your steam traps. It’s not enough to simply remove condensate from your system . . . the true benefits come from adopting a simple condensate recovery system.
- Condensate recovery – a condensate recovery program will enable you to reclaim the condensate that is routinely discharged from your steam traps by recirculating it to your boiler for use in producing additional steam. By doing this, you’ll find savings in a number of areas.
- Recapture lost heat energy – instead of losing the usable BTU’s in the condensate, recalculate them in the return main and boiler feed water system for use in producing additional steam.
- Lower make-up costs – returning hot condensate to the return main not only conserves on energy, it also lowers your costs for preheating boiler make-up water.
- Reduced operating costs – instead of sending treated water down the drain, a condensate recovery system will return water to the boiler where it will be reused without requiring additional treatment chemicals.
The design of the “Single Compression Spring” pressure operated pump received the Plant Engineering Magazine 1992 Gold Award for the best Fluid Handling Product. It is used constantly in many fluid mediums throughout the world (a permanent solution to excessive maintenance costs on return condensate systems). The design is simple to ensure maximum operating reliability under the most challenging conditions and to provide plant operations with the best performing, non-electric, “maintenance free” pressure operating pump available.
