Nicholson Steam Trap was founded in 1883 by W.H. Nicholson, Sr. He, along with his sons William, George and Samuel produced a variety of steam specialty products at their facility in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Trap manufacturing had begun early in the twentieth century with the precursor to our current weight operated series traps. In the 1930's a wide range of bellow-activated thermostatic traps were developed, the descendants of which are still built today in a modern facility in the town of Walden, New York. Also at this facility, a wide range of products from safety valves to control valves and, of course, steam traps are manufactured.
The Nicholson Steam Trap product line is focused on the industrial marketplace and features traps ranging from highly polished stainless steel sanitary traps to innovative free float combination ball and thermostatic traps.
Nicholson products are known throughout the industry for their value and durability. A recent product introduction is the P3 Condensate Commander Pump; a steam or air pressure powered pump available in several sizes including pre-fabricated skid mounted systems. These continue the Nicholson tradition of providing high performance, value-oriented products to the industrial marketplace.
