Nicholson's model CDS-204, installed with the optional B bellows, is the most sensitive trap in the market with a 1*C (2-3*F) sub-cool. This means that SIP system (Steam-in-place) sterilization pressures can be set lower because control limits are tighter. This lower pressure, and corresponding saturation temperature, reduces rouging and extends the life of components. The high capacity of the CDS-204 makes it an excellent choice when fast SIP system warm up is desired. It is also well suited for Clean-In-Place Return (CIPR). Nicholson offers a full line of BPE compliant sanitary steam traps including the CDS and CDH, DS100/110 series.
