Summer is winding down and cooler weather and winter will arrive soon. Many commercial, residential and industrial facilities use steam systems for heat. It’s time to make sure your steam system is ready to go and you have everything you need for a successful operation. Steam traps are necessary to make your steam system safe, efficient and sustainable. Without steam traps, you risk unwanted condensate damaging your steam system, conducting poor heat transfer and wasting money. The duty of a steam trap is to discharge condensate while retaining live steam in the system. The right steam trap solution ensures your steam system operates at an optimal level without any issues of potential damage or poor heat transfer resulting in additional expenses. However, there are many types of steam traps available including thermodynamic, mechanical, thermostatic and more.
