Steam Systems Inspection
Keep Your Steam Clean, Safe And Energy-Efficient
Your steam traps contribute to product quality, energy conservation, component longevity and employee safety.Yet it is not uncommon to have as much as 50% of steam traps in a failed state.
As hot steam travels from your boiler to the point of use, some cooling is inevitable. The result is condensate and gases. The job of the steam trap is to isolate and remove these impurities from the live steam. Steam traps that function properly help maintain purity and efficiency throughout the system.
The best way to test steam trap function is to listen to them with an ultrasound solution. With ultrasonic detection you’re able to hear:
- The opening and closing of your steam trap
- Silence if the steam trap is stuck in the closed position
- Turbulent flow if the steam trap is stuck in the open position
- Mechanical clattering if the steam trap’s valve is fluttering open and shut
