Armstrong International helps you improve your efficiency, safety, productivity and profitability with reliable, accurate steam trap surveys.
As an integral part of your proactive trap management program, regular steam trap surveys provide many advantages.
- Evaluation of steam trap performance, such as proper functioning, leaking, plugged, cold, etc.
- Diagnosis of the root cause of any trap failures
- Visual assessment of valve status and condition
- Identification of any steam system issues around traps, such as insulation defects, water hammer, condensate return, piping issues, back pressure, stall conditions, etc.
How Do You Achieve Proactive Trap Management?
By conducting frequent surveys, replacing traps as needed, and addressing the root cause of any failures, Armstrong’s trap management program helps customers significantly reduce failure rates and move into the best-in-class category of the chart.
Shown here are leakage rates for sites using SAGE® that have been surveyed by Armstrong. Only 20% of these customers utilize a true trap management program that maintains failure rates at below 5%.
Avoid the Costly Consequences of Irregular or Infrequent Trap Testing
Accurate, consistent surveys help prevent serious issues such as: water hammer, elevated energy waste and fuel consumption, frozen lines, production stoppages and unscheduled downtime, as well as increased equipment maintenance, repair and associated hours.
