Piping a Steam Coil control valve lifting condensate

Mark_45 Member Posts: 1
I'm adding a steam coil that needs to lift the condensate 4 ft. The coil is located in an airhandler setting on a concrete floor. The system operates at 12 psi. The coil is controled by a modulating 2 way valve. The drop from the coil to the floor is 6". How should this be piped???

    Is The...

    ...boiler on all of the time when this coil is in service? Is there a fan moving the air across this coil, or face & bypass dampers? If you've got these conditions, then you could eliminate the steam control valve, leave the steam on, and use a thermostat to control the air flow, rather than the steam.

    If the steam has to be controlled, then you're likely looking at a pumping trap. Spirax Sarco, Armstrong, etc make them.
