Wireless Steam Trap Monitoring to Reduce Energy Losses and CO2 emissions (March 20, 2024)

Accurate, consistent testing of your steam trap population and prompt replacement of failing traps can prevent serious and costly issues such as: water hammer, unscheduled downtime and production stoppages, frozen lines, increased energy waste and fuel consumption, as well as increased equipment maintenance, repair and associated hours.

This webinar will highlight the different steam trap technologies, their respective failure type, as well as annual failure rate. And it will highlight the cost of steam and steam losses due to failed steam traps using an approved methodology by the UNFCCC. A trap management program is only effective when steam traps are tested often and replaced quickly - the different management methods will be reviewed and evaluated to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Key Takeaways:
-    Identify steam trap failure types
-    Estimate steam trap failure rate
-    Calculate the cost of steam and CO2 emissions
-    Evaluate the avoidance costs
-    Test steam traps effectively
-    Replace steam traps quickly
