Technology Tuesdays

Let’s talk steam traps. What are they?

A steam trap is not, technically, new technology. They have been around since the 1970’s. They have also been gaining much more “steam” in recent years in the realm of energy efficiency. Steam traps allow systems to work much more efficiently, they help to dramatically reduce corrosion in pipes by removing water (condensate) from steam systems, and have a return on investment of less than 1 year.

Steam traps can be applied to almost any steam system such as radiators, water heaters, industrial kettles, sterilizers, turbines and more. What’s even better, PG&E offers a rebate on the replacement of failed Steam Traps or steam trap capsules for commercial and industrial customers. You can find additional information on steam traps and the PG&E rebate here.
