STEAM TRAP SURVEYS
A steam system that has not been maintained for a period of time will have a significant number of failed steam traps. Through our service department, we can provide a Steam Trap Survey for your facility. Using precise, industry standard procedures and state-of-the-art proprietary ultrasonic testing equipment, Blue Energy Technologies surveys identifies and reports all wasteful and expensive steam leaks and faulty steam traps within your plant or facility.
SCOPE OF WORK
- Isolation valves (inlet and outlet)
- Inlet strainers
- Blowdown valves on the strainer
- Outlet check valves (if needed)
- Trap station bypass
- Test valves or sight glass flow indicator.
We will tag trap with sequentially numbered stainless steel tag and wire hanger unless the facility has all traps already numbered.
We will document trap location, application, steam pressure, manufacturer, model and technology. Pipe size and trap size, connection type, inlet and outlet temperature and comments about existing installation are also documented.
We will test operational status of trap using ultrasound and temperature differential measurements.
We will provide complete report noting the entire results of survey, including synopsis of results (traps tested, leaking, plugged, not in service, etc.)
A detailed formal report outlining the findings and recommendations, as well as a full inventory of the steam traps is the final delivery of the steam trap survey. We prefer to present the final report in person and it includes all of the items above, along with a formal repair quote in both a paper and electronic format.
