    SteamExpert - Application-Specific Software for Steam Trap Testing

    Defective steam traps have a significant impact on the energy efficiency of a steam system and, in the worst case, can cause dangerous water hammer and unplanned failure. With the SteamExpert app, steam traps of all types and brands can be tested quickly and inexpensively. The app was specially developed for the digital ultrasonic testing device SONAPHONE in combination with the ultrasonic and temperature sensor BS20. The tester is guided intuitively through the test process and at the end has a reliable result on the condition of their steam traps in his hand. In combination with the DataSuite software, the tests can be planned in the form of routes and the results can be comprehensively analyzed and evaluated.

    Steam Trap Losses - What it costs you?

    Experts assume that around 15 to 20 percent of steam generated is lost through leaking steam traps. With only one leaky steam trap (thermodynamic bimetal, DN25, system pressure 11 barg) approx. 22 kg of steam per hour and thus approx. 190 t per year are lost (with 8,400 operating hours per year). With production costs of € 35 / t, this loss adds up to around € 6,600 per year.
