With traditional steam trap management programs, trap inspections usually occur only once a year—with no recognition that traps fail every day. In fact, failed traps lose steam an average of six months before they receive attention. Clearly, this is a reactive approach that waits for something to go wrong (the event).
A best practice approach (process) is proactive, and it’s continually evolving to meet changing conditions. Just think—here’s an opportunity to know instantly when a steam trap fails. And once you are armed with this up-to-the-minute steam trap information, you can immediately take corrective action and plot with pinpoint accuracy the results of your measures. Talk about valuable reporting!
