  • 21.07.16 Posted in Steam Traps Quick Reference Guides By Margie Moschetti
    A steam trap, in a simple definition, is an automatic valve which will vent non-condensables and condensate from a piece of steam consuming equipment and stop the loss of live steam as it enters the steam trap. Steam traps started to appear in use about 1900 and replaced the prior device which was typically a pinched piece of tubing or a cracked valve adjusted by a pipefitter. As you can imagine, this approach was neither efficient, effective, nor cost effective. Steam trap development started with float or bucket operated valves and then evolved into many other types.Read More

    It is virtually impossible to find any published information on the amount of steam blown by a failed trap. A general rule of thumb is to figure 10% of the trap condensate capacity due to the density differences between steam and water.

    Using $ 10.00 per million BTU's for natural gas, losses for steam traps and leaks can quickly amount to substantial dollars. You can use a ratio of your gas costs to adjust these estimates. When all issues are factored, a steam boiler in excellent condition will operate at about 75% fuel to steam efficiency (BTU's burned vs. BTU's delivered). Doing the math, this calculates to a steam energy cost of $ 13.33 per 1,000 lbs. Add another $ 2.00 for water and chemicals and the range is $ 15.33 per 1,000 lbs of steam.
