INDEPENDENT STEAM TRAP SURVEYS - NO MANUFACTURER OR SERVICE FIRM AFFILIATIONS
Supply a quality, reliable survey.
Established Steam Tec Inc.
At that time surveys were almost exclusively provided by trap manufacturers. We developed a non proprietary data base that integrated steam trap location with annotation on unit plot plans. Any form of this you see today originated with Steam-Tec 35 plus years ago.
Proprietary programs are problematic and by several manufacturers own admission are a marketing tool. Trap population is tracked - compared and corporate strategy gleaned from YOUR data. Some programs limit use to a single computer.
Any program that coordinates a "magic wand" to input trap condition into a data base is highly unreliable. Comparison tests reveal that the accuracy of any device that takes the human element out of trap testing is capricious and somewhat arbitrary.
One of the main question asked - what is the best steam trap. This depends on many factors but after 35 years of observation I have an informed opinion with statistical data to back it up. Please feel free to contact me to converse about this subject. I will guarantee you that I can advise you which products to avoid.
