Surveys

The Spirax Sarco steam trap survey will identify, tag and test every steam trap station in
your plant. We will confirm whether it is suitable for the application, working correctly, or
failed in the open or closed position.

This information is entered into a computerized Steam Trap Management System which
shows a full inventory of your traps, their location, status and suitability for the application.
Failed traps are highlighted, and steam losses calculated giving payback times on
replacement of the failed traps

A trap which has failed open will result in:

Increased fuel bills.
Higher emissions.
Increased water and effluent charges.

A trap which has failed closed will result in:

Waterhammer and wet steam.
Increased maintenance.
Longer start-up times.
Reduction in process performance.


The survey can also identify steam leaks with the goal of targeting and prioritizing areas
of your plant which, with further investigation, could lead to greater savings and
improvements.


Steam Trap Monitoring Software

Using Spirax Sarco's Steam Trap Monitoring Software (STMS), the survey team will
produce a set of reports which may be downloaded to a PC for further analysis. The
reporting system is both flexible and comprehensive.
