The World’s First Methodology for Quantifying and Mitigating Risk to Steam Systems
Steam system optimization programs focus on conserving energy and improving system reliability. Such programs have typically provided estimates of the energy savings that plants can achieve. However, they have not been able to quantify the savings that plants can achieve by improving the reliability of their steam systems.
Since 2015, in collaboration with industry leading asset integrity specialists, TLV has been developing a way to quantify these savings by measuring the probability and cost of equipment failure.
Utilizing our steam engineering know-how and extensive experience with inspecting and optimizing steam traps and related steam equipment, we created SSRM, the world’s first methodology for quantifying and mitigating risk to steam systems.
- Identifying and quantifying risk factors and reliability issues
- Reducing risk and mitigating potential threats
- Evaluating risk mitigation actions
- Achieving energy savings
SSRM focuses on measuring risk to:
- Steam applications, such as
- Steam turbines
- Heat exchangers
- Critical steam tracing systems
- Gas flares
- Steam stripping
- Related condensate discharge locations
- Steam distribution and condensate recovery piping
SSRM aims to mitigate and reduce the probability of all threats to steam applications and related condensate discharge locations, including:
- Steam turbine trips
- Heating problems
- Water hammer
- Steam leaks
