A common steam system requires steam generation, distribution and recovery. The goal of an effective steam distribution system is to link the output of the steam generation system to the steam end-user equipment. The distribution system supplies high-quality steam to the end-user equipment at the required rate and pressure, and with minimal steam heat loss. And lastly, the function of an effective condensate recovery system is to make the most effective use of all remaining steam and condensate energy after process and end equipment usage.
An Infrared Steam Utilities Survey or Inspection of radiant panels provides information on leaks, blockages and other malfunctions in sub-surface radiant panels and piping. The Infrared Steam Utilities Survey or Inspection distinctly locates the radiant piping to prevent cutting or drilling through the pipes during repair and remodeling projects. Infrared Steam Utilities Survey or Inspection are also used to locate leaks and other malfunctions in buried steam or hot water lines. In working steam systems, improper steam or heat distribution is a sign of costly expenditures and mechanical trouble. Any one of the above problems can dramatically reduce the fuel efficiency of the entire steam system and lead to costly or even catastrophic failures.
And because infrared thermography testing is non-contact and nondestructive testing (NDT), there is no need to interrupt system production or plan for costly system shutdowns. Our experienced ICS Thermographers inspect your steam utilities equipment under normal loads and operating conditions. By performing an infrared scan of your steam utilities system in ‘real time’ our infrared steam utilities survey or inspection can help you understand the practical impacts of emerging or existing steam component problems.
