steam trap repair option - cage units
I am refurbishing my existing MILVACO H100 traps and looking at Barnes and Jones tables have the option of replacing the guts with a cage unit using the existing cover versus using a cage unit requiring a new cover. The difference in cage unit appears to be spring. I have been advised to use the new cover/cage unit combination. Has anyone experienced installation with existing covers vs new covers and found one better experience over the other? Does the B&J cover combo go in easier than trying to use an old cover? is it hard to hold the cage unit in place using the existing cover?
