Energy Efficiency: Steam-Trap Monitoring
Steam lines have hundreds, even thousands, of steam traps. Yet 15-20% of these steam traps has failed and are leaking steam and wasting money – costing around $5000 per steam trap annually. Manual inspections are labor intensive, costly, and because they are usually done annually at best, don’t catch problems in a timely manner.
With the ION Steam Trap Monitoring Solution, a non-invasive wireless monitor can be installed quickly and easily to monitor critical steam traps and immediately detect faults and leaks. As an integrated application within the ION System, this information not only provides alarms, but also combines all steam trap monitoring devices along with other energy system sensors to give you a complete dashboard for managing and optimizing your energy usage.
