Steam Trap Surveys

Logis-Tech are now conducting Steam Trap surveys throughout the UK.   A Steam Trap Survey carried out on a regular basis is the efficient way to maximise energy efficiency, eliminate costly losses and minimise production downtime.

Steam Trap Survey:

A Steam Trap Survey involves a detailed inspection of your condensate return system and delivers the following:

  • Identification and an inventory of the complete steam trap population
  • Independent checking of each steam trap to ensure that it is correct for the application.
  • Visual inspection of each steam trap to check that it is installed correctly
  • The latest ultrasonic testing using the Leakshooter LKS1000v3 of all steam traps in operation
  • Highlight other issues that may be observed in your steam and condensate system
  • Generation of an independent report as a result of the survey

The Steam Trap report will contain:

  • A complete detailed listing of all your steam traps
  • Precise operating conditions for each trap (at time of survey)
  • A detailed report on the condition of the steam traps and associated ancillaries
  • Accurate steam losses will be highlighted and calculated using your exact operating costs
  • Calculated return on investment will be given for any remedial work that may be required
  • Should other steam leaks be identified such as gland leaks then these will be also included
  • An inclusion for other system recommendations maybe required

A steam trap (thermostatic, inverted bucket, float, thermodynamic, venturi nozzle,…) is a device used to discharge condensate and non-condensable gases with a negligible consumption or loss of steam. Most steam traps are nothing more than automatic valves. They open, close or modulate automatically. Steam trap failures can affect process operations and reduce profits.

The movement of fluid in a closed system develops ultrasonic noise. Our ultrasonic testing camera LEAKSHOOTER LKS1000 recognize the noise created by flowing condensate or steam, and can be used to check a trap operating condition.

Defaults results in a Steam Trap

Defaults (mechanical blocking, wear, obstruct…) in Steam Trap can generate:

  • Harmful water hammer for plants and people working nearby (explosion of pipe, valve, trap …!)
  • Regulation process problem: temperature, pressure…
  • Rust and corrosion problem due to a bad condensates discharge
  • Energetic performance loss (financial loss of several thousand of € per year and per faulty trap)

How to detect these defaults in a steam trap?

With the new ultrasonic vision/detection combined technology LEAKSHOOTER LKS1000 and with a special contact probe, it is possible to detect and listen to these defaults (open, closed, leak…) which create ultrasonic wave due to presence of steam and condensate flow during the running cycle.

It is then possible to detect and listen to the normal condition (almost CYCLING) of the steam trap and then detects anomalies (permanent Open or Closed trap).  During CLOSED position, LKS1000 will detect nothing (GREEN and no target and no noise in headphone >fig.1). During OPENED position, LKS1000 will detect ultrasonic waves (YELLOW or RED target and noise in headphone >fig.2). CYCLING period is often some seconds. If it is “moving”, trap is OK!

The Leakshooter LKS1000v3 has included in it the NEW STRAPSHOOTER program; the first automatic Steam Trap Analyser

LEAKSHOOTER LKS1000-V3 uses:

 

– Ultrasonic contact probe to analyze the Steam Trap working progress

– Embedded infrared pyrometer to measure the pipe T° IN & T° OUT

– STRAPSHOOTER® program to see, hear, analyze and report the Steam Trap condition state

– Embedded camera to take the Steam Trap picture for reporting

– Ideal for steam trap surveys
