ACSI has remained an essential business at full capacity.

    That’s right… Time to schedule your Steam Trap Survey now, for it just might save you a Pot of Gold!!!

    With the cold weather still here, now is the perfect time to check those traps. Whether you have 1 or 1,000 in your building or facility, we can provide you with an expert steam trap survey.

    There are many procedures for testing traps, and we utilize some of the best-known instruments for ease and speed, to complete the testing.

    The instruments we use are:

    1. Ultrasound
    2. Thermal Imaging Camera
    3. Non-contact Temperature Gun

    You will really be surprised at how much money $$$ you can save, by replacing/repairing steam traps.

    Some signs to look for:

    • Steam expelling from condensate feedwater tanks or transfer tank vent lines.
    • Pump Cavitation caused by high condensate return water temperature
    • On vacuum return heating systems – difficulty in pulling a vacuum for the steam system.
