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.

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.
Being held responsible for a facility where vital cancer research is conducted is no mean task for any facilities team. So having confidence that all specialist mechanical services are working at their optimum level is paramount. By streamlining maintenance of its steam systems, the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research has mitigated outstanding risk and freed up in-house resource to focus on what they do best.
Steam is an incredible heat transfer medium. Every kilogram of steam contains around 2200 kj of condensable energy. That’s 26 times more usable energy than a kilogram of water in a typical heating system based on flow and return temperatures with a delta of 20oC.
