Steam Applications


With engineering, hands-on diagnostic assistance and educational programs we apply our expertise to help improve the efficiency of steam systems and equipment.

Steam Trap Surveys

We offer Steam Trap Surveys to locate all steam traps within a steam user's facility, and identify, tag, and test them using an ultrasonic device. As a customer, you receive a complete report including recommendations for the replacement of failed or misapplied steam traps. We provide cost-savings data showing you how proper replacement will solve problems (such as fuel losses from failed traps) and deliver significant savings.

Steam Traps Audits

Steam Trap Audits focus on all steam-using equipment, such as heat exchangers, jacketed kettles, humidifiers, etc. The objective is to assess the performance of the local steam system, to determine if greater efficiency can be achieved either by re-configuring, repairing, or replacing components within the system.

Steam Utilization Training

We provide on-site and off-site Steam Utilization Training - customized to your needs, ranging from a couple hours to all-day. Seminars are targeted to educate steam users on more efficiently managing steam systems, resulting in increased production and significant savings. Sessions generally cover fundamental principles of steam, and progress to effective sizing, selection and use of steam system equipment and components. Off-site seminars often include the use of a "steam demo lab" where actual plant conditions are simulated.


❝ I would like to take this opportunity you for the excellent technical support (both before and after the sale) for equipment purchased by the complex. The repairs and improvements completed here have saved the complex 2.5 million gallons of water, 129,675 gallons of fuel, plus the cost of chemicals and wear on our system. In dollars, for one year it equals approximately $118,600.

Again, thank you very much. ❞

❝ I would just like to thank you for the fast action that you took yesterday afternoon, so that I could receive the delivery for early am. Not every order that I requested for Saturday early am delivery came as they promised this morning. I really doubted that you were going to be able to deliver our steam trap to us either...but there it was on the truck. 

I am very grateful and just needed to let your company know just how much we appreciate the time and dedication in your company to get us  what we need when we need it. Thanks again. ❞
