Monitor your critical steam trap’s Pulse

It is hard to keep track of all smart steam traps in a plant. When there are thousands of individual assets working at the same time, one defect can easily go unnoticed, especially when you don’t monitor them frequently. The consequences can be costly, from energy loss, CO2 emissions, deteriored end product but also impact the productivity of the plant. This is why it is even more important to avoid problems before they happen.

LOCTITE has developed a smart and easy-to-use solution that helps you to get notified about irregularities and be able to act instead of react. Find out how LOCTITE Pulse smart monitoring helps you to keep an eye on your equipment status 24X7.

The impact of Steam Trap failure is huge

Almost every industrial plant has a large number of steam traps with a potentially significant impact on the performance, resource consumption, and sustainability of the plant. With lack of manpower in maintenance and longer intervals between manual inspections, broken steam traps can go undetected for a long period of time and cause significant energy loss, increased fuel consumption, and unnecessary CO2 emissions.

Increasing the number of manual inspections to regularly monitor hundreds and thousands of steam traps requires additional labor cost and expenses. Insufficient removal of condensate inside the steam trap significantly increases the risk of damage to the steam system, potentially causing long downtimes and affecting people’s safety.
