Steam Trap Surveys

Did you know that if your steam traps aren’t working as they should, you can potentially lose thousands of dollars a year just in lost steam?

For Example:

In a plant where the value of steam is $10.00 per thousand pounds ($10.00/1,000lb), an inspection program indicates that a trap on a 150-pound-per-square-inchgauge (psig) steam line is stuck open. The trap orifice is 1/8th inch in diameter.

Estimated steam loss is 75.8 pounds per hour (lb/hr). After the failed trap is repaired, annual savings are:

Annual Savings = 75.8 lb/hr x 8,760 hr/yr x $10.00/1,000 lb = $6,640*

Apex Magnet Audits

*This example comes form the US Department of Energy January 2012 article “Inspect and Repair Steam Traps” – savings may be even more significant now.

A typical quantity 100 steam trap survey yields around 10 – 20 failed steam traps.

We can audit your steam system and give your plant an accurate report of which steam traps are working properly, and which ones should be replaced.

Magnet Audits

A magnet audit is when a certified technician evaluates, tests, and inspects the performance of your already installed magnets. This includes a full report with information that includes the magnets’ current strength, any required cleaning or maintenance, if the magnet is in the correct location, or if it’s the correct magnet at all.

Many industries, such as food processing, plastics manufacturing, recycling, and mining, benefit by using magnetic separation, metal detection, and material handling equipment. By using magnetic separation technology, metal contaminants are removed from product lines. This creates a safe, high-purity end product for the customer and maintains the integrity of other equipment on the production line. Magnets can and do wear out – so it’s critical that you get your magnets tested to verify they are doing the job you need them to do.
