Steam Loss

Steam Loss Through a Failed Trap

All too often, steam traps are selected and installed, only to be forgotten. All steam traps fail with time. On average, plants without a regularly scheduled maintenance program experience failure in about 15-25 percent of their traps at any given time.

When failed traps are ignored, hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of steam can be wasted. The following calculator will give you the cost of steam losses associated with a failed trap.
