dc.description.abstractEvery steam system is plagued by problems from malfunctioning steam traps. Effects of such problems can easily lead to downtime, loss of production, and hazardous working conditions, among others. Although most minor problems are made tolerable through system maintenance, more efficient testing of traps can actually prevent them. An effective trap testing program provides a way to both simply and reliably monitor the performance of condensate collection and, in turn, improves the overall efficiency of the entire steam distribution system. Overall efficiency in steam systems not only reduces energy usage but also significantly diminishes long-term operating costs. To realize these environmental and economical benefits, first, it is necessary to implement a comprehensive saturated steam monitoring program, which specifically involves identifying, documenting, and then correcting faulty steam traps. Remarkably, the implementation of this solution generally realizes a six to twelve month payback time.en
