Effective steam trap management ensures that you retain the benefits that efficient steam traps provide. A Spirax Sarco steam trap survey is the first step to realising these benefits.
To run a steam system safely and at peak operational efficiency, it is essential that all steam lines are cleared of condensate properly. This means ensuring that steam traps are working efficiently, a task best achieved by implementing a regular maintenance schedule.
Identification of the complete steam trap population and labelling with clear and durable tags.
Inspection of each steam trap to check that it is the right type for the application.
Inspection of each steam trap to check that it is correctly installed.
Design of the most cost-effective steam trap management programme for replacing faulty or incorrect steam traps.
Identification of other critical issues relevant to your steam and condensate system.

Steam trap contract helps Heinz reduce carbon emissions by 200 tonnes a year.
Implementing an effective steam trap management plan, doesn’t need to be complicated. Lowering Carbon output, increased production and energy savings are all benefits you could achieve from regular management.
Pressure to increase profit margins and reduce operation costs means it is more important than ever to refine your processes and increase productivity. Our industry and steam application experience can help you to achieve optimal output.
Steam is an incredible heat transfer medium and, it’s come a long way from its traditional associations with locomotives and the Industrial Revolution. Today it’s an integral, clean and essential part of modern technology. Without it, our food, textile, chemical, medical, power, heating and transport industries could not exist or perform as they do.
I’m a true believer in the idea that you learn something new every day. From discovering the meaning of a word you’ve never heard before to mastering a new culinary skill in the kitchen, learning makes life interesting and it also helps you develop as a person too.
Time. There’s just never enough of it, especially when you’re running a steam system. Your busy job, which is full of deadlines and ever-changing demands, can leave you feeling as though there is no time to stay on top of your steam system’s upkeep.
Removing condensate and air from your system is essential. Returning condensate to the boiler house maximises use of energy. We have the right steam trap for your application and the people to advise you.
