Steam Trap & Hot Water Monitoring

Continuous Steam Trap Monitoring is the next step to provide real-time information on the performance of your steam & condensate system. Armstrong’s AIM and SteamEye wireless steam trap monitors along with their SAGE™ platform provide real-time monitoring to prevent energy losses, production problems and potential safety issues.

AIM and SteamEye products use temperature and sound measurements to identify failed steam traps and alert the user immediately of problems.

Hot water monitoring with Armstrong’s Digital Recirculating Valve (DRV) or BRAIN® is compatible with the SAGE™ platform and is available on their Digital-Flo hot water heating systems. This allows for real-time hot water system monitoring to prevent and reduce any interruptions to hot water service.

Detailed Engineering Studies & Design

In cooperation with Armstrong Services, Carotek can provide a full scale engineering study along with design and project management services to provide safe and efficient steam, condensate and hot water system solutions.

Steam Trap Surveys

Routine Steam trap surveys help lower costs by finding issues before they become costly. Steam traps that are failed can cause serious efficiency, maintenance, and safety concerns. By regularly testing steam traps, these concerns can be mitigated to provide future cost savings prevent catastrophic failures.

Carotek can provide on-site steam trap surveys that include tagging and identifying each trap, assessing the suitability of the trap for the application and help to establish standardization that reduces overall operating and maintenance costs. Our trained technicians can also identify other cost savings opportunities.


Steam Utility Energy Audits

Our utility experts can conduct a comprehensive, on-site examination of your entire utility system to evaluate your steam generation & distribution, condensate return systems, heat recovery systems, hot water systems, lighting systems, water/wastewater treatment, electrical system, operating and maintenance efficiency, and HVAC systems, report the findings, and make recommendations.

A detailed report is presented that recommends Energy Conservation Measures (ECM’s), estimated Return on Investment (ROI) and more. Then, the energy specialists will determine the intelligent solution(s) that will be most effective and work hardest to achieve your goals.
