Abstract:

Steam traps and orifice plates have been examined to assess their utility as condensate control devices in typical Army steam systems. Specific types of devices have been recommended for the various major user in Army facilities. Selection of the size of each device should be made in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. Inspection and maintenance of steam devices is critical to their proper operation and to energy conservation. Industrial maintenance firms may perform this function in cases where there are insufficient Facilities Engineering personnel to provide periodic inspections. Author
