steam trap survey

An unmaintained steam system will inevitably have a significant number of steam traps that have failed.  Approximately twenty percent of the steam leaving a central boiler plant is lost via leaking traps in a typical space heating system without a proper predictive maintenance program in place.  A routine program will detect any waste of energy, efficiency, and dollars.  Implementing a steam trap maintenance program will be beneficial.  The selection of the assessment equipment is of secondary importance. 

Our service reliability consultants can detect plugged, leaking, or blowing steam traps.  Thermal imaging is used to identify completely failed traps and traps which underperform. Ultrasonic instruments are used in conjunction with thermal imaging to further define the problem as required.  Upon detection, the bad trap location is recorded digitally and a detailed report is created.
