Improperly maintained steam traps are a common area where energy is wasted. We use ultrasonics and thermographic technology to make sure your steam traps are operation correctly and efficiently.

This survey technique can be applied to these trap types:

  • Inverted Bucket
  • Float Types
  • Thermostatic Types (including bimetals)
  • Thermodynamic Traps

The faults that can be identified are as follows:

  • Stuck in the closed position (no flow)
  • Stuck in the open position (constant flow)
  • Improper modulation or fluttering of the trap (mechanical failure or system issues)

When combined with a Steam Heat loss survey this powerful assessment service can identify failed traps but also areas where traps could be insulated to reduce energy consumption.
