Steam Bulletin

Steam Trap
Maintenance Programs

Steam Bulletin is TLV's free bimonthly email magazine on steam systems, energy efficiency, product selection, and more.

Our new article explores how a district heating and cooling company transitioned to condition-based maintenance in order to manage an extensive array of steam traps across its facilities using TLV's steam trap management system, enabling more efficient and targeted maintenance.

Implementing the TrapMan® Survey service from TLV enabled precise diagnostics and maintenance focused on operating condition rather than a regular schedule. This resulted in quicker, more accurate assessments.

The company was able to reduce inspection/repair costs by approximately 10% and the inspection time from eight weeks to one. This optimised resource allocation and ensured the continued efficiency and reliability of the heating and cooling systems, demonstrating the effectiveness of transitioning to condition-based maintenance in large-scale utility management.
