Importance of traps in Industrial Processes

Carlos Bartolotto Filho, Karina Tamião de Campos Roseno


There are several problems involving heat loss in pipes, heat exchangers, among others, and one of the points stand out are the steam traps , which although they are small devices , when there are maintenance problems , these values become significant and harmful for any industrial process. This study aimed to quantify the financial loss of a particular industrial process due solely to loss of energy (steam) in traps. Concluded that the results obtained a targeted maintenance is beneficial to the industry by reducing these losses
