Don’t Just Monitor, Take Control: The Power of a Steam Trap Survey

by | Nov 21, 2023

A steam trap survey is much more than a routine check-up; it’s a strategic move that can significantly elevate your steam system’s performance, reduce the risk of failure, and help you meet sustainability targets. More importantly, it ensures adherence to safety standards and compliance protocols.

When we speak of the performance of a steam system, we’re not merely focusing on heating efficiency. We’re talking about safety, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. A well-maintained steam system doesn’t just heat efficiently; it operates safely, runs reliably, and saves on costs in the long run.

The High Cost of Inefficiency

Steam remains the most efficient method of transferring heat energy around a facility. However, leaking or failed steam traps can lead to significant costs, running into thousands of dollars annually due to increased fuel bills, chemicals, excess emissions, and maintenance expenses.

The Power of a Comprehensive Steam Trap Survey and System Audit

By conducting regular steam trap surveys, you’re not just preventing potential leaks and damaged traps. You’re also making a commitment to safety, reliability, and sustainable operations.

Our comprehensive Steam Trap Survey and System Audit service from Cooney Coil & Energy is designed to mitigate energy loss, enhance safety, and boost reliability in your steam systems. It includes:

  • Precise tagging of trap locations for easy identification and monitoring
  • Comprehensive evaluation of steam trap performance to detect inefficiencies
  • Expert assessment of correct steam trap application
  • Identification of potential issues in your steam system, such as water hammer, insulation, and condensate return

Detailed Reporting

We provide a detailed report on your steam system, including suggested trap replacements, energy-saving opportunities, engineering best practices, and health & safety recommendations. This insightful data allows for improvement and informed decision-making.

Replacement Credit: An Added Advantage

Maintaining a steam system can be expensive. That’s why we offer a replacement credit, providing a discount on steam trap replacements as part of our commitment to cost-effective solutions.
