107 Page Book Paperback
MAINTENANCE & TRAINING TOOL
Steam trap tutorial guide with color pictorial examples covering the
installation, inspection, operation, and testing procedures (both
ultrasonic and thermal imaging) for the five main steam trap categories.
Highlighted in the guide are eleven areas common to most institutional,
industrial and commercial facilities where simple improvements reap
huge energy savings. Supplementary information included are tables for
the properties of saturated steam, drip pocket sizing, steam leaks using
plume length, and insulation savings for both pipe and valves.
This compact [8½ x 5½] 107 page book is a useful reference and training tool for those involved in maintaining, testing, inspecting, installing and troubleshooting steam traps [tanks, headers, control valves, pipe and tank insulation, drip pockets].
It culminates author Bill Holub’s 30 years surveying, sizing and supervising high- and low-pressure trap installations for companies like Suncor, TransAlta, Shell, ExxonMobil, Firestone, Georgia-Pacific, Cytec, JBS, Pilgrim’s Pride, Tyson, ADM, ConAgra, Bunge, Purac, Armour-Eckrich, Cargill, Motorola and Pellerin-Milnor.
He has consistently resolved such trap-related problems in industrial and institutional steam systems as inconsistent heat, high back pressure, waterlogged lines, water hammer and air locking.
In addition to steam, Bill had solid experience in process control and instrumentation as a Manager for both Magnecraft Struthers-Dunn, makers of electro-mechanical relays for power generation, motor controls and facility automation, and L&J Engineering, Shand & Jurs, producers of storage tank level gauging equipment for petrochemical companies.
The Trap-Pro Guide gives maintenance people ‘straightforward, basic info’ to help them spot and resolve trap-related problems before they become environmental and bottom line nightmares [wasted steam, chemicals and makeup water].
