Let us survey your steam traps to see which are working as they should and which are costing you money. Trap manufactures tell us that steam traps last about 10 years before needing service, so regular maintenance is essential to your system and your wallet. Steam loss is money loss. Let us survey them. You’ll save dollars and headaches.

We are experts at steam. We’ll inspect each trap and quickly fix the problems that cause water hammer, feed-pump cavitation (talk about an expensive problem!) and imbalance in your vacuum-return system.

Here’s the best part: You can use money from the utility rebate and incentive program to cover all or part of the cost of the survey. Call us now. We’re happy to help.
Is Your Boiler Running a Fever?

Call us. We’ll use our Thermal Imaging Camera to check your boiler’s “skin temperature.” That’s the best way to find internal damage and/or refractory failure. External signs of heat damage include paint burning off your boiler, furnace, or oven skin… or even metal warping! A little high-tech detective work goes a long way in keeping your system running well. Let us save you money and trouble.

Happy Holidays

We at American Combustion Service, Inc., American Mechanical, and American Refractories are thankful for YOU, our client and friend. We send our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones for a very joyous and safe holiday season.
