WHAT'S THE PROBLEM
A steam trap is an automatic valve to filter condensate from active steam. Large sites (e.g. an oil refinery), can have over 10,000 traps.
Steam traps fail frequently, with an average service life of only four years. Failures typically result in energy losses, although in rare cases, severe events can occur, easily leading to millions in damages (e.g. New York steam explosion, 2007).
Standard practice for steam trap management involves expensive manual audits, which may occur as frequently as once a year or less. In between audits, steam trap failures remain invisible and unresolved.
SMART INDUSTRIAL MONITORING
Predict. Alert. Save.
By monitoring steam traps continuously, industrial sites will be immediately notified of any failures that occur so that they may be rectified; thereby saving money, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and eliminating the chances of harmful steam trap related events.
WHAT SEPARATES US?
Other steam trap detection systems use ultrasound sensors. This technology is 30 years old, and impractically expensive.
Our new sensors provide increased accuracy and detail in steam trap health at a lower cost. Furthermore, we have designed our monitors with excellent battery life and adaptable software, so no up keep is required. To learn more about our product, please contact us.
