Thermal Utility Efficiency
Actual industrial situations have been created to understand the
working of the various types of traps. In addition a computerised
steam trap testing device ‘TRAPMAN’ is used to find out if the trap
working or not as well as amount of steam leak if trap is not working.
The experiments carried out in this facility are:
• Understanding the operation of various traps
• Visual observations to distinguish between live steam and flash steam
• Ultrasonic testing for determination of trap functioning
• Simulated testing of traps in rainy outdoor condition
• Identification of defective traps
• Operational characteristics of traps in flooded condition
The steam trap training facility comprises often traps of various types and make. The types of traps available are Orifice &float type, inverted bucket, thermodynamic, and thermostatic
