Example text

However, steam can flow round the edge of the disc resulting in a pressure build up in the control chamber D as shown in (ii). When the steam pressure in chamber D acting over the full area of the disc exceeds the incoming condensate/steam pressure acting on the much smaller inlet area, the disc snaps shut over the orifice. This snap action is important. It removes any possibility of wire-drawing the seat, while the seating itself is tight, ensuring no leakage. As shown in (iv) the incoming pressure will eventually exceed the control chamber pressure and the disc will be raised, starting the cycle all over again.
