Infrared Steam System Surveys

Steam system surveys are capable of finding problems before they become major issues that cause downtime or expensive repairs. Businesses that use steam for heating or manufacturing can lose hundreds of thousands of dollars annually due to compromised steam traps. Not only are profits increased by identifying problems, but your carbon footprint is also minimized.

How You Benefit From Infrared Steam System Surveys

Steam functions within a pressurized system by maintaining high temperatures. Large amount of energy are transported via the steam and can be stored within the system. As temperatures within the system increase, so does the pressure, but it begins to lose energy the moment it leaves the boiler to travel along the steam lines.

As the pressure and temperature of the steam drop, it begins to condense, allowing water to form within the lines. This water that was once steam is removed from the lines by steam traps to be returned to the boiler in a continuation of the cycle.

Infrared steam system surveys identify areas within the system where lower temperatures indicate that steam is absent due to some failure within the system. Often, these failures occur within the steam traps and can go unnoticed for some time, resulting in frustratingly high costs due to lost profits or compromised heating.

Failure rates for steam traps are shockingly high, and they can cost an unsuspecting enterprise hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Identifying and repairing one failed steam trap can pay for an entire inspection, so these surveys should be a regular part of your preventative maintenance plan.

How Often Should I Conduct An Infrared Steam Survey?
This will have much to do with the size and scope of your operation, and whether you use steam for manufacturing purposes. Because of the high cost associated with steam trap failure combined with their high statistical rate of failure, it makes sense to conduct an infrared survey at least once annually and possibly far more frequently.
