Steam traps are a critical component to a steam system. The Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that approximately 20% of the steam leaving a central boiler system is lost via leaking steam traps in typical space heating systems. In addition, malfunctioning steam traps can adversely impact process quality. FluidEfficiency assists plants by inspecting and repairing steam traps on a routine basis and conduct an energy efficient assessment.
The FluidEfficiency team conducts a comprehensive onsite audit of steam traps—identifying mode of failure, and steam loss and cost without interruption of the process. The process can include:
