Abstract:

Steam traps are an important element in the efficient operation of a steam system and in energy conservation. The high cost of producing and delivering steam mandates an effective steam trap inspection and maintenance program at all applicable naval activities. A comprehensive program for steam trap inspection and maintenance will pay for itself many times over in the cost of steam that would likewise be wasted by neglected traps. This Guide provides the basics in steam trap operation, selection and installation, inspection and troubleshooting, and repair and testing. Most important, though, it provides guidance and practical assistant in establishing and inspection and maintenance program. Implementation of such a program for steam traps would be a significant step in energy conservation and better use of utility operation funds. The Users Guide is useful as a handbook for individual study or for group training. Author
