|Advantages of the labyrinth steam trap
This type of trap is comparatively small in relation to
its capacity and there is little potential for mechanical
failure since there are no automatic parts.
Disadvantages of the labyrinth steam trap
The labyrinth trap has to be adjusted manually whenever
there is a significant variation in either steam pressure
or condensate load. If the setting is not right for the
prevailing conditions, steam wastage or waterlogging of
the steam space will occur (like a fixed orifice trap).
