Our most popular survey is The Steam Trap Survey !

A well executed steam trap will uncover significant problems, detailing which steam traps have failed or those that are not functioning to their full  operating potential. This is especially true if your systems have not had any professional or specialised attention for a period of  time.  Optimise can undertake an effective and in depth survey ensuring your company benefits from increasing your systems efficiency and in turn raising your productivity and profitability.


Failed Steam Traps Negatively Impact the Entire Steam System !

Failed steam traps waste fuel, reduce efficiency, increase production costs and compromise the overall integrity of the steam and condensate systems. Traps should be tested on a regular basis – failure to do so can be costly to your business

For example, you may:

  • Adversely Affect Production
  • Increase Maintenance Costs (water logging of jacketed vessels and equipment)
  • Cause Problems With The Hotwell Tank Boiling Up
  • Create Safety Issues (water hammer)

Obviously, anything mechanical will malfunction; steam traps are no exception to that rule. Proper maintenance improves longevity and helps reduce maintenance & energy costs.

Optimise Heat & Steam Ltd. offer bespoke Steam Trap Surveys and from the report supplied will offer a no obligation quotation to remedy all faults found, which in turn will help your productivity.

Please contact The Optimise Team to discuss your individual needs.
