Steam Trap Testing
Reduce Energy Costs and Increase Process Stability with Ultrasonic Testing Devices
The regular inspection of valves and steam traps is essential for preventive maintenance. The early detection of steam trap leaks or fails and signs of wear leads to increased operational reliability, and considerable cost savings.
The ultrasonic testing device SONAPHONE is used for steam trap and valve inspections in many branches of industry.The SONAPHONE devices can be used for the testing of the functionality of any type of steam trap e.g. for float, thermodynamic and thermostatic traps or for valves in systems with a flow of steam. The device enables the control of the proper functionality of steam traps and also allows an estimation of any losses of steam within the system.The functionality of steam traps and valves is tested by analysing the typical ultrasound and temperature of the respective installation.
Our complete solutions for steam trap testing includes:
SONAPHONE digital ultrasonic testing device
BS20 broadband structure-borne sound and temperature sensor
SteamExpert app for SONAPHONE
SteamExpert module for PC Software SONAPHONE DataSuite
SteamExpert App for Digital Ultrasonic Testing Device Sonaphone
With the SteamExpert app, steam traps of all types and brands can be tested quickly and inexpensively. The app was specially developed for the digital ultrasonic testing device SONAPHONE in combination with the ultrasonic and temperature sensor BS20. The tester is guided intuitively through the test process. In combination with the SONAPHONE DataSuite software, the tests can be planned in the form of routes and the results can be comprehensively analyzed and evaluated.
Reduction of error susceptibility due to implemented test sequence
Selection of arrester types directly in the app (thermal, thermodynamic, mechanical)
Input of pressure and emissivity
Plausibility check: measure inlet temperature and compare with expected temperature
Efficient recording of relevant test data by recording information such as text and image directly at the measuring point
