Prevent steam leakage and banked-up condensate with state-of-the-art technology
Steam traps are subject to wear. This in turn leads to loss of steam or banking-up of condensate. Experience shows that the failure rate of faulty steam traps is as much as 25 %. This failure rate can be slashed to less than 5 % with annual inspections and the necessary maintenance.
Steam traps of all makes can be inspected by ultrasonic measurement during ongoing operation. The measured ultrasonic spectrum is shown on a display unit as needle deflection on a scale, or as a curve on a graph, depending on the testing system used.
