This practical handbook is designed to help steam users achieve optimum performance from their steam generation, distribution and utilization systems, and in the process, significantly reduce their operating costs - often by 20% or more - by controlling steam trap related losses. Every aspect of proper selection, sizing, application, operation and maintenance of the multitude of steam trap types is covered in clear, easy-to-understand terms. A full chapter is devoted to steam trap maintenance, covering how to organize an effective maintenance program, and illustrating several simple yet effective troubleshooting techniques which do not require expensive testing apparatus. Also examined is the experience of both utility companies and the U.S. Navy with the controversial "fixed orifice" steam trap. With contributions from four major U.S. steam trap manufacturers, this reference provides a welcome universal source of hands-on steam trap information presented with the user in mind.
