Steam trap

  • Steam is formed when water vaporizes to form a gas. 
  • This is done by giving latent heat of vaporization to water. 
  • By this water will convert into vapor. 
  • When the work is done (i.e. steam has given up its latent heat), steam condenses and becomes condensate. 
  • Now the condensate will not be able to work same as the steam. 
  • So now the thermal efficiency will reduce as efficient steam is mixed with the condensate.
