Steam Traps

Leaking steam traps in process steam systems can account for substantial energy losses in your plant. Eliminating steam leaks by installing new steam traps can reduce both natural gas and water usage—which lowers energy bills and saves money. Energy Trust offers rebates for installing steam traps in industrial facilities.
