How Much Are Leaking Steam Traps Really Costing You?

How Much Are Leaking Steam Traps Really Costing You?

This chart, from North Carolina State University, shows the amount of Steam Loss (lbs/hr) that can result from a leaking steam trap.


As you can see, a single steam trap with a hole even the size of a BB can cost thousands of dollars in steam loss. When multiplied over numerous traps and an industry-wide average of 5-20% leaking at any time, the losses can be very high, on the order of $60,000 annually for each 100 steam traps in a building/system.

 An effective solution is to install a steam trap monitoring system, such as Armstrong's SteamEye wireless steam trap monitors. For recommendations for the type of monitoring system that is best for you, contact the team at Campbell-Sevey.
