Forbes Marshall Compact Module Thermodynamic Trap CMTD

The Forbes Marshall compact module is formed by connecting the universal connector thermodynamic steam trap to a pipeline connector. As the name suggests, the module is compact thereby offering ease of installation and operation. Conventional modules, on the other hand, take a long time for installation due to multiple components and welds and are often difficult to maintain.


  • Single permanent in-line component for ease of specification and installation
  • Only 2 welds to install in line
  • Forged carbon  steel construction for long life
  • Time to install - less than 45 mins
  • Installable in any angular direction without any change in trap position


  • Heat emission is low - less surface area
  • Weight reduced to only 4 kg
  • Overall length reduced to 160mm
  • Reduced maintenance costs compared to traditional trapping stations - plant can be kept alive while the trap is replaced. No need to remove anything except the trap for maintenance
  • Zero valve leakage - due to piston valve technology
