It's Full Steam Ahead

Process Steam & Steam Trap Incentives

If your facility uses steam boilers, it probably has multiple steam traps. Steam traps are automatic valves that release condensed steam while preventing the loss of live steam. They allow steam to flow at a controlled or adjusted rate for optimal energy efficiency. Eventually steam traps fail—and when they do, steam can be wasted and energy lost. Even one major leak can cost your business thousands of dollars!

Cash incentives are available for a variety of process steam projects, including:

  • Steam trap surveys
  • Steam trap repair or replacement
