STEP 1: Understand Your Current System

Undetected steam leaks and system inefficiencies can lead to costly consequences. Understanding your system and identifying potential issues can reveal easy opportunities to optimize your system's performance, cut costs, and save energy.

Steam Trap Surveys

Understand your system better by scheduling regular steam trap surveys to identify inefficiencies, prevent system failure, and achieve your cost and energy saving goals.

Steam trap surveys provide:

Evaluation of steam trap performance, current condition, and status to provide feedback if the trap is working properly or needs to be addressed because of a blow-through, leaking, plugged, or cold status.

Identification of any issues around traps such as: insulation defects, water hammer, condensate return, piping issues, back pressure, stall conditions.

Diagnosis of the potential causes and corrective action for any issues found. 

Our steam experts comprehensively evaluate your steam traps to diagnose the root cause of problems and assess your entire system to make sure it's running at peak performance. Learn how our surveys have benefited other businesses.

STEP 2: Implement Simple Solutions 

Identifying areas for improvement in your steam system is just the first step, now it's time to make quick and easy fixes for big improvements. This step focuses on implementing simple and cost-effective solutions to address the problems identified during the survey. Insulating your steam pipes and auxiliary lines and recovering valuable thermal energy is a low-effort, high-impact solution that can significantly reduce heat loss, energy costs, and improve your system's efficiency.
