Steam Loss Monitoring

The Sniffers presents an overview of the possible steam traps, together with a summary of every installation per P&ID.

A steam loss monitoring project has 2 main objectives:

  • the analysis of your steam infrastructure by using ultrasonic & infrared equipment
  • the collection, analysis and reporting of your steam loss data

Having invested in a steam system, it makes economic sense for the owners to maintain it at its optimum operational efficiency. Boilers and other steam plant producers are the most significant energy consumers in a refinery. An important issue with regard to steam and condensate systems is the ability to predict consumed and/or wasted energy and opportunities for reducing energy consumption during the operation of the boiler and steam plants.

What is your Return On Investment when choosing steam loss monitoring?

A typical steam loss management program achieves a return on investment on average after a period of 5 months. Our experience shows that on average between 10 to 20% of all steam traps exhibit leakage. Steam losses are losses caused by defective steam traps, bypasses and process valves that start discharging steam with condensate causing high financial losses.

Our working methodology complies fully with your technical requirements and delivers expert advice for your maintenance plans.
