Does it seem like there is a perpetual monsoon in your plant? Do you have a hard time hearing your employees over the sledgehammer-on-steel sounds that your steam pipes make? Has the graph that shows your year over year steam usage begun to look like a textbook exponential graph?
If so, it may be time to start looking at getting your steam traps looked at.
Bestobell AquaTronix has extensive experience with any steam system whether it be five traps or five thousand traps, we have done it all! When the reccommendations are followed, a steam trap survey can have one of the fastest ROIs of any maintenance project. Even a small leak on a low pressure system can cost you hundreds of dollars a year, and in our experience, most plants will probably have about 10% of their steam traps fail each year.
